The tiny, underpopulated island of Iceland is a landscape of myths and legends. The harshness of the volcanic activity is ever-present and shapes the earth in the form of gushing geysers, bubbling mudpots, ice capped volcanos, glaciers and mountainous horizons. I had wanted to go and visit the Blue Lagoon and see the Northern Lights for myself, long before the infamous volcanic eruptions of Eyjafjallajökull in 2010 that caused enormous chaos and disruption to air travel across Western and Northern Europe (the eruption actually lasted for six months!), put Iceland on the map. Have a giggle with (or at), Sebina and I as we head to Reykjavik, and see some of Iceland’s most incredible attractions including Þingvellir (to see tectonic plates, not to be confused with tiptronic), the Golden Circle, Gullfoss, Geysir, the Blue Lagoon, and of course the elusive Northern Lights (and yes, we were successful in our hunt!).
Until next time, safe travels.
