The Land of Ice
For a long time, Iceland was more like a fairytale country to me.
A far away island covered in permanent snow where people look like Björk and talk like Sigur Rós.
When I saw a documentary about it once, most of my prejudices seemed right… except for the permanent snow… it looked like a very green country with huge waterfalls, spectacular glaciers and royal mountains.
This confused me enough to book a flight to Reykjavik to go and see for myself.
But I had to go in winter… the image had to be right.
