The Independence's Year:





To understand that here we are to the limits of the habitable territories it is necessary to live Iceland, with its volcanic phenomena, the breakings of the terrestrial crust, the immense glaciers, the cold and windy climate, the game roads dug in the volcanic rock and you pave to gravel with big rocks and continuous gorges dug by the waters.
Only here you can understand what an edge of volcanic earth emerged by the middle-oceanic dorsal is, that raises it from the waters of the northern Atlantic, with volcanos, with disastrous eruptions accompanied by shake of earthquake, to such latitudes to be made the territory carpeted by enormous glaciers (the Vatnajokull is great as Umbria) with the geysers that blow spray of warm water among infernal smokes.
However this nation is so beautiful...from the impetuous wind and from the strange light, from the blonde inhabitants (less than 300.000 intrepid), from the entire landscapes, open, solitary (if Reykjavik is excluded the density of the whole island it is of little superior to 1 ab / Kmq).
The Lake Mivatn, the sacred place to the country of Thingvellir, and the harbour of Seydisfjordur provoke a so great excitement!
