ICELAND // part two


Two things are uncertain in Iceland- the light and the weather. Both change all the time. The chances are what you wake up to will be very different to what you went to bed with.  We drove for miles before stopping at this little hotel which sits on top of a lava field on the Snæfellsnes pennisula and serves you freshly churned butter on lumps of basalt with homemade bread. We went to bed in the attic under cloudless skies and woke to snow and a view cloaked in thick grey mist. The clouds were so low that morning that we couldn’t see any of the mountains from the day before. The seasons were fighting each other that morning and it was hard to tell who was winning. My Norse tutor at Durham was right; this country will steal you away if you let it.
