 Waterfalls, Geysers, and First Parliament.

 › Iceland prides itself on being a land of ice and fire, and today we saw that first-hand when we toured the Golden Circle. We visited icy waterfalls, boiling glaciers, and the true birthplace of human democracy. It was an epic day.

Endless Days, Statues, Hot Dogs.

› After leaving England, we had a three-day layover in Iceland, a small island country the locals call a land of ice and fire. On our first day, we got the lay of the land in Reykjavik, along with a history lesson or two, and some delicious hot dogs.

Yo, Hadrian!

Yo, Hadrian!

New Shoes and an Ancient Wall

› Way back around the year 120, Roman Emperor Hadrian decided he'd had enough of the wildmen who lived in what is now Scotland. So he built a giant wall too keep them out of the northern border of the Roman Empire. Parts of that wall still stand today.
