Icy Cold in Iceland
First of all, apologies for not having kept up to date with my blog.
Just recently, I went to Reykjavik for a 2-day trip that had already been cancelled twice since the Coronavirus pandemic started. The trip was fantastic, although we didn't see much more than snow and ice, then more snow and ice. They had had a massive storm two days previous to our arrival so they were clearing snow into piles everywhere. It's amazing how life carries on though - I'm not sure that would happen in the UK.
If you are thinking of visiting Iceland, I would highly recommend taking one of the mini-coach trips to see the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights), the geysirs and the waterfalls. The guides are SO knowledgeable that you learn loads about the country and have amazing views where you can see for miles.
The food we ate was really tasty too. If you like lamb, I'd definitely go for that; it was the best lamb I had ever tasted. The coffee was delicious too so find yourself a little coffee and cake shop.
Did you know that Iceland doesn't have insects or their own mammals? I didn't! They have a tiny mouse that lives mainly underground and Arctic Foxes that they brought over from Scandinavia. They also just have one native tree there so any fir trees you see have been imported. It's a fascinating country with a fascinating history.
