Iceland: Ethereal island in Europe
Typical Iceland Road
Once you leave the relative comfort of the town or cities, this is typical of the Icelandic roads. One can drive literally for hours and see nothing, no trees, houses, cars or wildlife. This lush lowland area differs significantly from the uplands area, which is often barren with lichen-covered lava rack as far as the eye can see in all directions. Never venture too far without a reliable vehicle and a tank full of gas - not too many places to fill up in the countryside.
