Turns out the earth is just a giant kettle //️ 80-100°C, bubbling up from the ground (stinking like rotten eggs... )
That moment when you stand on top of the plane wreck you've been looking at photos of for months... // The Sólheimasandur plane wreck is a 1973 US military plane that ran out of fuel and crash landed onto the black sand beaches of southern Iceland (deaths: 0). Unfortunately Justin Bieber filmed a recent music video here, skateboarding along the top of it...idiot.
Got up at 6am so that we could see this haunting wreck minus the tourists. (Just as well, as there were bus loads of 'em arriving as we left around 9am!)

So many different landscapes as you drive route 1 (the main road that goes all the way around Iceland) - watching out the window as @johzeeck drove was better than any movie! The moss-covered lava fields were one of my favourites - could be on the moon..
