Geography Trip to Iceland

We had a very busy day today! Leaving Leixlip at 2am we arrived in Belfast in good time for our 7am fight to Iceland. We hit the ground running with a trip to the mid Atlantic rift where we stood between the European and North American plates. We followed this with a steep climb to an extinct volcano to see the crater. Afterwards we visited the mud pools and thermal springs. The smell of sulphur was everywhere. Finally we climbed an observantion deck to see the sights of Reykjavic.
