In December, we took a trip to Iceland where we slept on top of our 4WD, in a tent, for a whole month. Sounds tough right? But we were very lucky concerning the weather. It was cold but not that stormy. I took this photo in the afternoon of December 24. We spent Christmas evening in Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon where the icebergs gather and roll out into the sea. First we were lucky enough to catch the far away northern lights, then started to cook. We finished our Christmas dinner that we made in the tent, then quickly took down the tent because of the upcoming snowstorm. So we slept in the car. Was really uncomfortable, and not the first time doing it.
We spent Christmas around Jökulsárlón, visiting ice caves and just hanging around. The place is a famous tourist attraction. It's preposterous to stand on the beach with the other visitors and stare at the terribly beautiful icebergs floating away. I couldn't really enjoy and admire the view. I froze to death and not because of the cold. It's hard to witness the irreversible effects of our civilization. It's hard to explain to anybody around us, not to enjoy seeing such beautiful things. People from all over the world, its our fault to see such things, they are not the amazing creation of the nature.
