          ... glacier to create rooms and tunnels. This is the only place in the world where you can walk through the inside of a glacier. So it was pretty amazing. Lots of beautiful, blue ice, And - they even have a beautiful chapel deep into the glacier where people get married. When we came in February this tunnel was not open yet so it was wonderful to be able to see it so soon after opening. If you decide to come to Iceland be sure to put the Ice Cave on ...

          ... advertising certainly doesn’t lie, the rainbow colours of the rock walls are amazing, yellows, reds, ochres and blacks, and there was a strange silence.

And to think John used to be afraid ...
