Iceland : the extraordinary colors and hot springs at Hveradalir moutains

The World > Europe > Iceland

  • Som / ogilla

This place is like nowhere else, near the camping at Kerlingarfjöll, which you can reach with a 4WD car, and even get closer driving though walking the long trail to this site is more breathtaking.

The "red" path goes right in the middle of the fumes and hot springs, that usually are fobidden to go too close; better have a solid pair of shoes, and not be afraid of steep and muddy slopes! But this makes an incredible experience to live.

In this panorama, most of the hot spring and fumes are hidden though: as usual in Iceland it is very hard to find the "best" place to look at! In the background you can also see the nearby glacier.

Detta är en översikt av 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.
