Pingvellir – where the continent shift and the ancient Icelandic parliament

It’s our first time out of Reykjavik today. As we are off for our road trip on Monday, we decided to take advantage on one of the one-day-tours well organised by Gray Line. A coach trip was definitely something we both have done in the childhood, but not really recently, so we didn’t really know what to expect. Equipped in flask with tea, homemade sandwiches and a chocolate bar, we took off to see the country’s most important historical area, a hot spring and an impressive waterfall (Pingvellir, Geysir and Gullfoss)

Gullfoss – a pounding waterfall carving its way through a canyon

We had a great day out. Even if it was just an easy trip out from Reykjavik with a collection of must-see attractions. But if they say that far more fantastic things lay further beyond… we simply can’t wait to go on the road.
