Not as safe as people think. I had friends that had their wallet stolen.

But something worse happened.

I was walking to my hotel one night around 2 AM and a van approaches me asking for directions in icelandic. i told him i only spoke english so he starts asking in english. He and his pal asked for a specific street and I said i didnt know. He jumped out of the van and hit me on the head. I said dont hurt me here's my money. He made me walk the other direction and promised to kill me if I turned around. I called the cops and filed a report. I've never felt less defeated in my life, it still haunts me to this day.

To #Haraldur I know you posted well over a year ago, but I thought I would comment. The American culture that you see is and blame is not American per se. I have talked to a lot of Europeans during travels and they do not seem to get that Americans are very different state to state. We have 50 states that, at times have laws and cultures so different that it is hard for Europeans to fathom that they are in the same country. A lot of what you see on TV, listen to, or read about is heavily influenced by the coasts. The West Coast dominated by California and the East Coat Dominated by New York. There are giant swaths of the middle of the country where you could drive for hours and not see a single person. States like Wyoming and Montana have vastly different cultures than California. Texas is very different than Maryland. Etc. Many of us in the middle of the country despise California and New York and the "culture" that they represent.
