This is one of the most popular day trips for the almost two million tourists that will visit Iceland in 2017. Thankfully today my group was boutique – 4 youngsters and one geriatric. There were two Americans and the young woman from Australia came from Coolaman! Why the exclamation mark? Coolaman is a village less than 40 km ftom Temora!
The triangle visits a geyser field- interesting but New Zealand does it better – a breathtaking waterfall (pictured) named the Golden Falls and finally a national park.
The last photo is a panorama in the National Park and is the site of the original Viking parliament- our guide assured us Iceland has the oldest parliament system. The panorama shows an immense lava field where the two continental plates meet and are migrating apart by 2cm a year! So rest assured it’s quite safe to picnic on the laval mossy fields without fear of falling into the abyss.
For those of you interested, my luggage arrived after a detour to Copenhagen!
Today I start the Backroads Iceland Multisport tour. The weather forecast seems optimistic.

Interested, interested you ask! I have been wondering about little else. The thought of you wandering around Iceland naked does not bear thinking about (or bare thinking about)
Old joke….you know why the Vikings died out ? …… they lost the Allen Key ! Xx
You will need to explain that to me! 😐😄😈
Fantastic composition. Beautiful pictures. Are you going to choose the America’s or the Europe side of the plate? Ivan
