green little review

Greetings from the Golden Circle

We spent nearly nine hours on the Golden Circle circuit seeing spectacular Icelandic scenery on Tuesday, starting in what looks like the Martian landscape of Raudholar and ending up straddling two continents at Thingvellir National Park. In between, we walked deep into a lava tunnel where for a minute all the lights went out and we got to stand in absolute darkness, walked around and then down to a magnificent crater lake, watched Gullfoss Waterfall make rainbows, saw a geyser erupt and hot springs bubble, ate ice cream while watching the cows that produced the cream, and watched water fall from the European Plate onto the North American Plate.
