    Indescribable

    ... somehow people inhabit this island still.

    Walking across the lava field was surreal, and haunting. There was what looked like a "house graveyard"; wooden signposts indicating where houses once stood, now buried deep beneath the rubble. Scrambling up the sides of Eldfell was strange - peering into the center, there was nothing
    to see except infill of more rocks. I don't think that means the volcano is ...

    ... was really surprised at the texture of the land on the volcano - it was lots of really small rocks and pretty much no solid base. We didn't go around the back side to see this, but we were told by our host that if you dig down a bit there, it's still too hot to touch at just 4" deep!

    After our very rapid descent from the volcano we made our way back to pick up our things, and head down to the ferry. Our host family was really kind, and it ...

    ... There were glaciers blending the volcano tops into the clouds, and everything was moss covered.

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 ...

    ... in fine black sand and small colourful and crunchy bits of rock. The countryside is so dramatic it is quite breathtaking and not all black, green fields provide fodder for cattle, horses and sheep (all on the menu). Only things really obvious in their absence are trees... You can travel miles without seeing any, those that exist have mostly been planted around people's houses. Strangely the houses and shops look very different to what we are used to, mostly built ...

    ... t-shirts, etc. We did see some nesting high up in a cliff on our Vestmanna Sea Cliffs excursion in Torshavn, Denmark. But, they really weren’t close enough to photograph. The puffins breed from April till the end of August on these islands. At the end of August, they go out to sea and remain out to sea until the breeding season starts again. They, then, return to the same area each year. Very cute birds and very popular ...
