Earth Fire Wind Water. Green pastures and fresh rivers filled with salmon, grazing horses and sheep, ancient glaciers and austere deserts, dramatic coastlines and smooth beaches, erupting volcanoes and static lunar landscapes, ice lagoons, straight roads empty for miles, lonesome fjords and bustling fishing villages, pristine valleys and austere, awe-inspiring landscapes. Sophisticated and rural, tough and heartbreakingly beautiful, oppressive with its fog and expansive in the endlessly layered skies, modern and traditional, poor yet rich, and soaked in history. ICELAND is like no other place on Earth.
I have been writing about my trip to Iceland on my blog, "view da la lòbbia" (www.ndb-agency.ch/blog).
