I is for Iceland – not the supermarket but that frozen little island to the north of the nearest Viking. We went there for a week in March/April 1998, during which time the day temperature warmed up from -4 to +3 degrees. Positively balmy!
So what do you think of, when you think of Iceland? Mainly – ice!
I took lots of photos on this holiday but for some reason can only find a few – and I’m not sure where most of them were taken. I know there’s the amazing place in the centre of the island where the tectonic plates meet – and all the steam rises out of the centre of the earth!
The very bold and daring might creep right up to the edge and look down!
Not that far from the capital Rejkjavik you can find the Þingvellir National Park
It’s an extraordinary landscape
Our hotel was the Saga and was just on the outskirts of Rejkjavik, which gave a very picturesque view of the city as you walked in.
The big pond was frozen when we arrived, but had turned into water by the time we left!
Plenty of opportunities for some quirky photos
And the locals were very friendly
Sorry not to be able to show you more of the sights, but this is a little taster if you fancy going, or a small souvenir if you’ve already been! Tomorrow it’s back to the theatre memories, and some shows I saw between July and September 1979. Stay safe!
