    ... falling with style. Ok, perhaps with less style, but it hardly qualifies as flying. Apparently they're also prone to crash landings, but ons in the water they become like fish. When these birds were first observed, many people thought of them as flying fish rather than birds (probably after they saw them flying).

    ... a lake on the other. Everything was hand made and decorated exactly how we would do a place up if we ever had the opportunity.
    After a quick shower and peanut butter on bread (hadn't eaten in many many hours) we crashed into bed and slept straight for 17 hours. We woke up just in time for breakfast which included handmade rye bread which was baked in the hot spring, home made waffles, which were the best ever! And coffee that was so good we ...

    ... aimed for Gullfoss, Iceland's most famous waterfall. More broad than tall, the waterfall seemed to appear out of nowhere as it stretched across the relatively flat landscape and dumped a massive volume of water through a double cascade into the narrow chasm below. It was LOUD, and wet, and fantastic. We had booked a room the previous night at a guesthouse, aptly called the Skogar Guesthouse, in the small village of Skogar, along ...
