... been black due to the volcanic sand and stones which make up most of the island. It was beautiful to walk on but there were multiple warnings not to go near the waves as they were big and very unpredictable. After spending some time taking photos and enjoying the quiet isolation of the beach, we took to the road again and travelled to Skaftafell national park (with many, many stops along the way as the scenery was amazing). The journey from Vik to Skaftafell is ...

... will not just leave me black and blue, but also encourage the circulation and get rid of any muscle knots.

Ok on to the real good stuff from today. Our first stop at Vatnajokull National Park was in the Skaftafell area. From a long ways ...

... Park which includes parts of the giant Vatnajökull Glacier, Europe's largest glacier. This was a sight to behold and probably the biggest, most intimidating natural beauty we have both ever seen.

It is absolutely huge and in fact the Vatnajökull Glacier covers about 8 per cent of Iceland's land mass and on average it is 400 metres thick. Yes, intimidating and almost scary. It looks as if it is alive if you can understand our thinking. It is just simply enormous and the ice is ...
