    I was the only guest in the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food at dinner and breakfast was excellent.

    ... along--mostly underwater, with only ten percent of their bulk showing above the water level.

    The black color you see on the ice is not dirt as you might guess, but volcanic ash and rock.

    ... there is no indoor space so it looks like Molly’s going to be
    wearing her new jumper to bed! There is a shared kitchen and big dining hall which
    is lovely and warm and we spend a pleasant evening playing cards and cooking.
    Now off to bed and Tom is already asking to borrow one of my eye- mask/
    sleeping black out thingies which he has been mocking me for bringing. It’s
