ICELAND

Last year, we were walking in Andalusia, in 40 degrees Celsius. We did like the country, but we didn't like the heat. So we decided: next year, we go to a cold country. Well, after long thinking, we came up with Iceland as a country that at least sounds cold. It turned out that we missed the heat-wave in the rest of Europe. In Iceland, as in Holland, the weather is an important subject for chit-chat. It appears it changes at least twice a day (or as the Icelandic people say: if you don't like the weather, wait for five minutes). So almost every day we had rain, we had clouds and we had sun, al of them somewhere between five minutes and five hours. Usually the temperature was somewhere between 15 and 20 degrees, sometimes up to 25.

But there is more to Iceland than the weather. Impressive landscapes, with mountains covered with moss, volcanic areas with sulphur, mud-pots, hot-pots and geysers, several glaciers, among which the biggest of Europe, lots of rivers and waterfalls, fjords, birds and other beasts and even some culture. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously. We have to fill our piggy-bank again, but in a couple of years we will definitely go back, to have a look at the places we didn't visit this time due to lack of time.
