Waterfalls, volcanos, glaciers and aurora borealis

A travel blog entry by howardstein


... we tried to go next to a glacier at Solheimajokull, but after 3 km on a bad gravel and pothole road we turned back. Without a high rise suspension we thought we would damage the undercarriage of our car, the only part of the vehicular that cannot be insured. We even had sand and rock insurance just in case we got into a sand and rock wind storm that could ruin the whole outside of the car. Apparently such a storm occurred the week before ...

Laugavegur Hike: Day Four

A travel blog entry by sam.floy


... moved, and the herd descended in upon the bus. People clambering to get their rucksacks in the stowaways and getting themselves checked off so they could get a seat.

Thus, ...

Day 4 - Skógar

A travel blog entry by hfamily


... by the eruption of the Eyjafjalla volcano in 2010.

On the way to Skógar, we stopped to take pictures in front of Žorvaldseyri, a large farm sitting at the foot of the glacier-topped volcano. It has belonged in the same family since 1906. The main type of farming includes dairy, meat and grain production. There was an information centre (previously a small farm building) across the street from the farm. It was actually covered in 10 cm ...
