    The world loves to kiss scotlands ass. If they relocated to a city in England he would have said relocated to ****** in the United Kingdom. But because it's a city in Scotland it's of course Glasgow, Scotland not Glasgow, United Kingdom. And then he's like "when scotland leaves the EU" 😂😂😂😂 As if they had a seperate vote and also voted to leave like England , Wales and Northern Ireland. The UK voted as a whole and any normal non Stockholm sydrome suffering person would have said "....when the UK leaves the EU"....It's sooo cringe

    I was one of the people stuck in a foreign country, although it's not a very interesting story. I was in Shanghai for my aunt and uncle's wedding with several other members of my family. When the flights were grounded we moved in with my aunt's parents for a week until someone managed to pull some strings and get us a plane ticket back home. I do remember that I got to go to a really cool aquarium while we were there though.

    At 0:23, with the comment about masks, I wonder whether you were saying it in a sarcastic way or with an undertone which is as if you say you're against the mass use of masks at a time like now? Irrespective of the coronavirus, using air pollution masks is a useful and good thing to do for yourself. I used air pollution masks for more than a year before the coronavirus started

    To be fair Keflavík is a well placed airport on a peninsula pretty far away from Eyjafjallajökull. The volcano/glacier is is pretty much in the middle of southern Iceland, and would pretty much shut down an airport in any part of Iceland. Also, the hike from Skógafoss to the volcano is absolutely magnificent and worth a trip to Iceland all on its own. It reminds me a lot of the valley of the drakes from dark souls.
