Our journey today took us out of Reykjavik and east toward the “golden circle”. To be truthful it is neither a real circle (more like a bow) and it is an invented title to promote a day trip tour by Iceland tourism.
Our first stop was Thingvellir whete the outdoor parliament used to take place a millennia ago. The place is also important because it is te fissure of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Our group walked the ever widening fissure (2 inches per year) from the upper to the lower lot.
