Iceland, an outpost of Europe, located on the Arctic Circle but not much colder than England; the Gulf Stream is warming. The island is sparsely populated and the nature, especially in the north, largely undisturbed. The incredible tranquillity on the beaches; the sound of the sea; the cries of the breeding birds visiting the island during the summer; all these bewitches the visitor. The colours are incredibly intense, the days are long and the streets broad and very little traffic. On the journey I have only travelled the western part of the island, but I'm really excited. Maybe this is due to the weather luck; the sun was mostly shining but it can also be very rough up there.
The western part of the island; Hveragerdi, Snaefellsnes, Flatey Island, Westfjords, Mývatn. And a sunset at midnight.
