OK so I am finally getting around to putting up our photos from day wo of our trip to Iceland. It was the most packed day as we did the Golden Circle Tour as well as have a look around the town of Reykjavik in more depth when we returned.
The first stop on the tour randomly was Nesjavellir, a high-temperature geothermal area with a powerstation. I actually enjoyed it a lot more than I was expecting to. It was interesting to learn how in Iceland they use natual sources to get hot water and electricity. This is a picture of some of the equipment in the powerstation.
This was a small statue in the powerstation that caught my eye.
The next stop was an impressive waterfall, Gullfoss (The Golden Waterfall). It was a bit of a walk from the bus and it was around -7oC and snowing as well as veing very slippery. On the way to the top of the waterfall we passed some grass that had frozen very quickly and I thought it looked really pretty.
