my 3rd trip to UNIQUE Iceland…
motto:”Le paradis, c’est d’être sur terre.” – “Heaven is being on Earth.”(Christian Bobin)
… land of extremes and contrasts, below the Arctic Circle, where the Vikings who came from Norway took up residence around the year 900. Another great opportunity for me to attend and to experience again a remarkable geology lesson… volcanoes, glaciers, lava fields, geothermal areas, black sand beaches make up stunning and wild scenery with unpronounceable names, which according to weather and light, remind me of the beginning or the end of the world…

I agree with Björk about her native country:“Iceland – emotional landscapes and state of emergency – is where I want to be… to me, freedom is the best aphrodisiac…” ❤
cracked and smoking grounds reveal in certain places “the bowels of the earth”, but nevertheless 330 000 people live on this island, about 1/2 in its capital Reykjavik and in small coastal villages, proud to be “anchored” up there… with its relief, its clear-cut and raw colors, Iceland – the realm of glaciers, inspires strong and emotional feelings, where superlatives are at home, for the splendor of its landscapes is unique… hey, Nature’s lovers, if you seek wild beauty, peace and serenity, this island is for us!!!

P.S. I’ve been asked now and then:”Mélanie, do you collect any material ‘stuff'”?…” – nope, I only collect images & experiences over the retina of my heart… ❤
