... sea. No too conducive to agriculture. The whole island is volcanic!!! The vertical lava wall makes for all the waterfalls.
Every homestead is a group of buildings tucked right against the cliff face. The group of buildings consists of a main house, minor dwellings (for the staff probably), a series of sheds ( for storage and I think to house the animals in the winter time) and sometimes a small church. You never see ...
... By now, it is raining heavily and there is a biting wind. We watch the Arctic Tern excitedly swooping on the wind and even catch a few seals braving the icy waters. Dressed in our bright orange life jackets, we board the vehicle for the coldest, wettest journey this holiday!

Originally this land was fertile farmland, but in a disastrous eruption in the 1300s ash and floods completely annihilated the area and it is now a wasteland. It's also where the first Viking to come to Iceland in the 700s ( after whom the place is named) settled, so it's very famous. But today it's a surreal desert. Eventually we got to the headland, ...
