Sharon and I went to Iceland for a few days last week.
When I become king of the world I'm going to rename Iceland to Wasteland. Cool place to visit, but damned if I saw a decent tree the whole time I was there.
It's covered in lava flows:
In fact, the Icelandic people seem to love them so much they build houses in the stuff:
Now call me paranoid and I'm sure they know best, but why they hell would you build your house in a fricken place where lava is gonna head straight for at the next damn eruption?!!!
Anyway, it wasn't quite all lava everywhere though, they had waterfalls, coming out of lava flows:
ones that didn't come out of lava flows:
And due to all this volcanic activity, there is heaps of geothermal stuff all around the place:
like geyser's erupting:
Shiit loads of volcanoes everywhere:
Some Volcanoes even started eating houses that had been sitting there too long:
And you guessed it, there was Ice in Iceland, mainly in the form of Glaciers:
Even their bars where made out of ice!!!!
You need to share the road with fricken horses:
but to unwind at the end of the day, there where heaps of geothermic pools to swim in, like the blue lagoon, so named because it's an off-white colour:
Tony's interesting fact #1 - all the heating and hot water in houses in Iceland come straight from hot springs. The showers stink like Rotorua.
