Iceland was a real challenge for me I must admit. Being alone in a country that has very few “home comforts” outside of its capital city other than a few humble villages where the sheep outnumber the inhabitants, it meant having to make do with basics like sleeping in a tent or in the car. Being self sufficient for 3 weeks, a real camping holiday without a proper bathroom, washing machine, TV or fridge. I was very excited to be doing an adventure on my own but with a touch of anxiety at the thought of which problems I may face along the way.

Iceland is known as the country of fire and ice. The rugged landscape is full of reminders of its volcanic past and present. It is scary to think that one is sitting on one big massive volcano. As proof of this, two weeks before setting off, an earthquake hit the southern coast of the island destroying many houses and causing considerable damage to the ring road through floods and landslides. I was a little concerned about the condition of the road as I intended on driving to the east side of the island where the dramatic glaciers and icebergs are to be experienced.

As it turned out everything went fine and I did actually drive around the complete island almost 1,5 times in 3 weeks. Those were 3 amazing weeks, full of dramatic weather, beautiful scenery and so much peace and solitude that I have never experienced anywhere else up to or after being there. Would I go back again? Definitely. Next time though I would like to take a 4x4 and visit just as the winter is coming to an end to experience Iceland with snow but also enough daylight to enjoy photographing this amazing, constantly changing landscape.
