Our bus was late for pick-up – rush hour at 11.15?? Stopped off at Pingvillir national park. (UNESCO heritage site) saw where the North American and European tectonic plates are speeding apart at 2cms year! The original islandic parliament was established here at this fissure. The first Christian Church established around 1000AD.
Islandic language is the closest to ancient norsk and today they can read the original 13th century sagas.
Next stop Geysir for lunch.
Then back home to Reykjavik.
Elves – hidden people /trolls. And ghosts are still part of the belief system. We drove round a twist in the road that avoided an elf church – not that they saw it but just in case they upset the elves – just in case!
