Waiting For The Ferry To Iceland
Denmark

Photographer’s Note:

Iceland, as I knew it at the time remains out there in the wild in comparison with most parts of Europe. I had set myself the task of riding a motorbike through the remote interior of the country and I was really having my doubts to how many of the bridgeless river crossings I could cross. I knew the motorhomes and the cars would not be venturing too far off the highways, but when I saw what everyone else brought with them I was really starting to doubt my choice of 2 wheels. There were big 4 wheel drives, a 6 wheel drive, various 4 wheel drives with huge tyres, then my little 10 year old Honda Africa Twin with only 2 wheels and only one of them that drove. I stared to the North Western horizon towards Iceland and the sun which had just disappeared for the evening. What will this new country have in store for me?

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
