      What part of Eyjafjallajokull don't you understand

      A travel blog entry by jennymgg on Oct 20, 2014

      ... due to the ash from the volcano, in contrast to the ice, which was a bright shade of blue. The glacier had receded nearly 2km over time and you could see how far it once extended, but the size of it was still impressive. The Eyjafjallajokull Visitors' Centre was due to close at 4pm, but Simon rang them to see what could be done and they held it open for us. The centre is run by the family which has farmed the land right beneath the volcano for generations. They just happened to ...

      ... The previous eruption caused a massive glacial flood and pushed out the coastline by more than three kilometres! The ice, contrary to what we expected, was not pure white. Ash from recent volcanic eruptions had left its mark on the ice, leaving a reminder of the danger that lurks below. We've noticed in our first few days here that Icelanders have a very levelheaded approach when it comes to the dangers that surround them. They are well prepared and accept that with all the natural ...

      ... lived in the 1800's and before. The museum ended up being a fantastic stop and we both really enjoyed learning about Iceland's history.

      When we finally made it to Vik we wanted nothing more than to find the hotel and get settled in but it was nowhere to be found! After a frustrating spin through all 5 streets that made up the whole town without spotting the hotel we broke down and gave them a call. This ...

      ... a skate board park by the harbour today. His ability to find places / ways to play continue to amaze me. He's so creative, playful and energetic. I'll never forget his excitement yelling out "KILLER WHALES MOM!!!! LOOK!!!! REAL KILLER WHALES!!!!!!"

      Tomorrow we take the ferry back to shore, pick up our rental car and head off to find the biggest glacier in Europe. Counting down to Monday evening when we will feel warm air again...

      ... There were glaciers blending the volcano tops into the clouds, and everything was moss covered. We hiked until the ground became too rocky to pitch a tent on, then back tracked to a place we had seen which was perfect. There is nothing like volcanic soil when driving tent pegs into the ground. It was great!! Once the tent was set up we filtered some water from the river, cooked some pasta and got ready for bed, greatfull for our awesome tent and camping ...
