Thingvellir National Park, Iceland

My first postcard from Iceland.
In geological terms Iceland is very young.

Iceland has the largest glaciers in Europe - in fact, 11% of the country is covered by glaciers.

Iceland also has more than 10,000 waterfalls and countless hot springs.

A lot of the country is technically uninhabitable, with the moss-covered rocks of ancient lava flows and tall treeless mountains, but these moonscapes – the NASA astronauts actually trained in Iceland before the first moon landing .

Thank you to my post-crossing partner ~ Stefan Orn Haraldsson
