My Icelandic Saga

All been quiet here as I’ve been away on holiday in Iceland, a country I’ve wanted to visit for some time. It did not disappoint – what a place!

Reyjavik is a delightful town with some fascinating architecture, from Hallgrimskirkja to the corrugated iron buildings, which sound horrible, but are very beautiful, and come in a wide range of colours…

Not to mention the whales, dolphins and porpoises. And great folk-tales too. Sadly, no pictures of elves, trolls or the truly terrifying sounding Julekatte (Of which more nearer Christmas. Be afraid, be very afraid…)
