I live in the county of Somerset (famous for scrumpy cider & The Wurzels), which is in the South West (or West if you prefer) of England.

Between the 27th - 31st May i went to Iceland, once again staying in the city of Reykjavik.
As with the ice hotel the holiday company i traveled with was Discover the World.
During my stay i (as usual) had evening strolls round Reykjavik & day tours to other parts of Iceland during the day.
On one of the day tours we went to the south of Iceland, on the way we encountered a wind blown ash 'storm' (volcanic ash lying on the ground whipped up by the wind), visiblity at times went to zero but managed to take some photos thru the bus window.
The Eyjafjallajokull volcano had stopped erupting during my stay but i did get a good look at the ash on the ground at the village of Vik, Skogar & the nearby waterfall of Skogafoss even bringing back some ash in camera film pots.
My best day had to be the day i had the superjeep tour, the day was largly sunny getting up to 23c the main reason being i actually got a ride in a superjeep.
We even went up a glacier in it.
If you like scenery, vibrant cities (Reykjavik), culture, history then Iceland is for you!
