... in Europe". Simon said Icelandic is one of the top five hardest languages in the world to learn. It is also one of the oldest unchanged languages in the world. If a Viking came back from the 1200s and tried to communicate, he would have no trouble as the language hasn't dated. I don't think William Shakespeare would have it quite so easy. Eyjafjallajokull is nothing though. The longest Icelandic word is 68 letters long and means a keychain for a key for a shed used by road ...

There was a church, petrol station and not much else! But seemed to be quite a busy tourist stop off! From ...
... and a very nice accommodation. We got our stuff inside, sat down to a pretty good buffet selection, and ten head off to a nearby black sand beach (sorry, Hawaii, more and larger here – although quite a bit chillier) for a LONG walk investigating pebbles and stones churned and polished by the surf.
We got back to the room around 11:00 – the sun had just set – and settled in for a good night’s sleep to end a thrilling day of discovery.
