Iceland – Lava, volcanoes, lakes and glaciers.

The landscape is incredible.


Peru – active volcanoes and spinning wool, llamas and high desert.

We flew across Peru close to volcanoes, one of which appearing to be erupting. We headed out into the desert on a bus into a landscape of volcanic ash and shrubs – with the odd llama. There we found an old lady sitting in the middle of nowhere spinning wool. Where she had come from was a mystery.

Cape Verde – A volcanic gem off the coast of Africa.

A group of volcanic islands off the coast of Africa. Very arid, dry volcanic soil with no standing water and no lush undergrowth.

We went up to the top of the central volcano. From the top it was clear that the bay was a collapsed crater. One can only marvel at the colossal forces that were involved in its creation.
