Before the advent of Instagram and internet in general, the word ‘Iceland’ conjured up images of a place sleeping under a blanket of snow, cold winds blowing through vast open spaces, and people wrapped warm in animal fur, squinty eyes set deep on their rugged faces and lots of other whacky ideas!
This image also created the idea of the place being hard to get to, and therefore more desirable! And as travel opened up, and the ‘web’ made it easy to swing across the world in no time, Iceland was sure to creep up on people’s dream destination! More so, a geologist’s dream destination! A truly extraordinary country, though extraordinarily expensive, but worth every penny! From imposing serene white glaziers to red hot fiery calderas of raging volcanoes, welcome to Iceland - the Land of Fire and Ice!
