WELCOME TO OUR BLOGSITE. IT'S MAINLY ABOUT OUR TRIPS - IN A TRUCK.

WHILST TRAVELLING OVERSEAS WE USE THE TRAVELOGUES SECTION OF THE SITE TO DOCUMENT OUR LOCATION, RELAY SOME EXPERIENCES, AND TO TAKE THE OCCASIONAL WITHERING STAB AT TRYING TO MAKE SOME SENSE OF THE WORLD.

BY DEFAULT, POSTS APPEAR IN DATE ORDER WITH THE MOST RECENT FIRST BUT NAVIGATING TO THE START OF EACH TRIP IS EASILY ACHIEVED BY FOLLOWING THE 'OLDER POSTS' LINKS.

AS WELL AS MEMORIALISING TRIPS, THE SITE ALSO OFFERS A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO US, OUR TRUCK, AND A FEW USEFUL RESOURCES.

WE HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR VISIT!

Iceland Trip - Day 15 - Iceland


N 64.00964°, W 18.99938°


We've just left Landmannalauger which was utterly spectacular. The colours of the mountains are something to behold. They are an ever-changing mix of red, brown, pink, grey, blue, and a startlingly bright green thanks to vast colonies of moss.

Throw in some gnarled and weird geological structures, fields of lichen, hot springs, steaming fumaroles, crystal clear rivers, snow patches and azure lakes and you start to get the picture.

Trouble is, it's (understandably) extremely  popular - timing a visit to dodge the crowds is a recommended strategy.

The rains came in as we spent a couple of hours on a hike around so unfortunately we have no pics that come even close to doing it justice. The best we can do is a 'distance' shot from our current location where we are coming down a bit with some hot chocolate whilst getting warmed and dry.

A search engine search of Landmannalauger should throw up some gob-smacking images.
