Wednesday, 28 May 2014 | Views [2010]

WE COULD SEE A TONGUE OF THE VATNAJOKULL GLACIER from our hotel room in Hofn.  Of the five glaciers in Iceland, Vatnajokull is by far the largest, perhaps as big as the other four combined.  One hundred miles later we were still driving on ... Read more >

IT WAS 11:30 PM WHEN WE LANDED to a pink sunset at Iceland’s Keflavik Airport.  Where winter daytime in Tromsø, Norway  was two hours of twilight at noon, midnight in Iceland is like pre-dawn.  I turned on the lights on ... Read more >
