      ... a road in a certain part of Iceland. We went to the beach. In -4 degrees. I mean, what else does one do in such temperatures? I had never seen a beach like it. Black Sand Beach is as its name suggests - a beach with black sand. We walked the path lined with rocks to the beach, only to be greeted by a giant cave framed with basalt columns, like it had been lifted straight from Giant's Causeway. There we also found two of the missing Twelve Apostles, as two large rocks ...

      ... problems a few years ago. Several large, jagged mountains and a valley were about all we could see that was left but it was still very impressive.

Our first stop on the road to Vik was Skogafoss. This was a beautiful spot with multiple waterfalls going on. The largest one had ...

      ... was then a 2 hour drive to reach our main destination - the glacier lagoon. About half an hour outside of Vik, we spotted the glacier. It looked like a big icy mountain. And didn't look all that far away. We kept driving and driving and it didn't seem to be getting any closer! Eventually we reached it and saw several sections of glacier - some bits were almost fluffy. Others looked like solid blocks of ice. And then finally at 2pm, we arrived at the glacier lagoon! ...

      ... of meat soup and coffee, we set off for the car. An awesome experience and one that needs to be on everyone’s bucket list.

      We headed east on the Ring Road, stopping frequently as we encountered one massive vista after another. After the somewhat bland experience the previous day, it seemed like the weather (sunny, but quite windy) and the sights were conspiring to show us that the country can’t be judged by its capital alone. From farmlands ...
