I've been searching for family friendly travel destinations for my family's vacation this summer... Iceland came to the top of the list so I did some googling.
Did you know there's hidden people in Iceland?! The Icelandic people call these elves/little people Huldufólk. They say some Icelandic people built small churches to try to convert them to christianity. Why does everything have to revolve around religion and trying to get everyone to believe the same things you do?
These hidden people are just a myth as there are no pictures or truly confirmed places where these people live. There are speculations that they live in the caves.
Small people are fascinating. When I visited Panama last March, we went to the Kuna Yala Islands. It's here that they say the second shortest civilization lives (the first being somewhere in Africa). The Kuna are indigenous people that live on a collection of 400+ small white sand and coconut tree islands on the east coast of Panama.
Franklin took us, along with a bunch of Israelis from the island, to the “main island” where he lived. We saw the native Kuna peoples donned in their decorative molas and beaded jewelry. The people are indeed short, as most of the men were quite a few inches shorter than me.
