Living in Iceland

I have lived in Iceland most of my life. It is allot different then the US. The school system is to 1-10 grade then we go to high school/collage. Also the food is different or really just better. Iceland plays with clubs not high school teams because the population of Iceland is not that great (360.000) so it is much easier. But Iceland is the most amazing beautiful country in the world. There I allot of places to visit for example the golden circle where you go to three different amazing places. If you want to go on vacation highly I recommended.

Lance Armstrong fame to nothing

Lance Armstrong  is an American former professional road racing cyclist. In 1995 he got the opportunity to compete at Tour de France. But didn’t do well. Then in 1996 he was diagnosed with cancer. Armstrong fought and survived. After his recovery he won the Tour de France seven consecutive times from 1999 to 2005 and more other wins. Great story right surviving cancer then winning every race. But Armstrong was stripped of those victories in 2012 after a protracted doping scandal.  Think about it a role model to many people then to discover he is just a fraud.
