Wishing I was up there on this beautiful day, instead of down here, but in order to reach my true goals I have to focus on them and handle business! (Or so they say 🙃) .~*~.*~. #daytwo#manifestationbabechallenge @manifestationbabe
The Golden Circle Trip is an essential for anyone visiting Iceland
The first stop was to the UNESCO World Heritage site Þvingllir National Park which lies in a rift valley and marks the boundary between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. The park also represents Althing, the national parliament of Iceland, as it was the meeting place of the The Law Council (who represented both parliament and the supreme court) until 1798.
Next we saw the incredible Gullfoss Waterfall which was truly stunning. Best described as a wide curved three step staircase covered in water. The history of the waterfall and the battle to prevent it being used for harnessing electricity is definitely worth researching.
The day ended with a trip to the Geyser Field at which you can see the sight of the original ‘Geysir’ whom all others are named after, although now inactive it is thought that it could reach the height of up to 170 meters! The most active geyser in the area is called Strokkur. It sprouts hot water as high as 30 meters into the air every few minutes or so
