In 2004, Þingvellir National Park in Iceland was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is the only place on the planet where visitors can see both the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates exposed from the earth. Well worth a visit any time of the year. I was there in summer and winter. Truly amazing.
The Icelandic character ‘Þ’—‘thorn’, from Old Norse and Old English is pronounced with a ‘th’, as in thing.
The double ‘L’ is pronounced with a ‘tl’, starting on the T and finishing on the L. Give it a try.



“Whoever created the world went to a lot of trouble.
It would be downright rude not to go out and see as much of it as possible.”

There’s always a choice!

So, whenever we return from our travels, whether near or far, we have a choice:

  • Do nothing and just let that experience fade,
  • or share the experience!

I choose to share the beauty of nature from around the world via my photo videos. Enjoy!
