Come visit Iceland with me
I’ve been neglecting my blog quite a bit lately for the simple reason that I just haven’t had time but my last big travel to Iceland deserves a little stage time.
The first thing you think when you land in Iceland, is how exactly did I end up on the moon? Really near the airport you’re surrounded by lava fields, no trees, no houses…. Just lavafields and steams vents. Since I was little and first read “Voyage au centre de la Terre” I’ve wondered what it would be like to travel to Iceland. Iceland has always been a little of a mystery, an island of 300 000 people, 180 000 of which live in the capital, a northern place with hardly any vegetation which up until 4 years ago was one of, if not THE most expensive country to travel to.
1) Anyhow, so here is a little of Iceland.
So after landing on the moon, I went towards Reykavik which despite being the capital feels like a little fisherman/surfer town by the sea without the surfers The main things to do in Reykavik are drinking coffee and drinking
The first night was the night Italy was playing Germany in the Eurocup, I had a few errands to run to get ready for Jeroen and I’s 5-day trek so I only got to watching the game at the 2nd half….and to my surprise FORZA!!! I was the only one in the bar cheering for Italy but I made friends with some Germany tourists who bought me a beer nonetheless…. However football just isn’t the same without Cannavarro.
The golden circle:
Two worlds colliding and they CAN tear us apart
This is where Eurasia says to America “ I wanna break up!!! Enough of this!!!” and America says “FINE but I’ll see you on the other side ” and the rest are highlights of the area.
A little more adventure.....Yup I went diving at the spot where the world is splitting up, water temp: 4degrees, ridiculously cold, but the rock formations and visibility make you quickly forget the cold.
