It’s a different and random little post today but I think it’s important to share the things we care about, and having visited Iceland earlier this year, I can tell you that it makes me incredibly sad to hear that much of its iconic wild habitat and rugged beauty is under threat of destruction.
There are government plans to lay roads and construct power plants in the Icelandic Highlands, which is currently one of the largest uncultivated and uninhabited territories in Europe. These lands have remained untouched throughout all of time and it would be such a tragedy if money hungry politicians spoiled that now.
There’s a site that explains it all better than I ever could, as well as a petition that aims to show that people from around the world are against this sad waste of natural splendour, so if you want to take a look that would be great.
I thought I’d share a few snaps from my time in The Land of Fire and Ice, which in spite of my seriously lacking photography skills, hopefully show a little glimpse of just how special a place it really is.
