The Black Sand Beaches of Reynisfjara
#48 - Friday, January 20, 2017

The farthest place I have travelled to in Iceland is the village of Vík í Mýrdal in southwestern Iceland. It is here where one can visit the basalt sea stacks and the black sand beaches of the Atlantic coast. Legend has it that two trolls were trying to pull their ship out of the water when daylight broke, turning them to stone.

Skógafoss is one of the largest waterfalls in Iceland. This waterfall was once a cliff of the southern coastline before the coastline receded five kilometers seaward.

Strokkur is a geyser that lies in a popular tourist route known as The Golden Circle in southern Iceland. Fueled by geothermal activity, Strokkur erupts every couple of minutes with spouts of water reaching up to 40 meters in height. The area is home to a number of hot springs with temperatures reaching 100 ºC.

Þingvellir, Iceland
#44 - Monday, January 16, 2017

And so begins a new series of image posts from my 2016 trip to Europe. This time I decided to be a bit more adventurous than before and visited ten countries. We start at Þingvellir National Park in southern Iceland where two tectonic plates separate North America and Europe. After literally jumping across these two continents, I walked down a Game of Thrones film location known as the "Path to the Eyrie and Arya’s and Sandor Clegane’s journey".
