Bruce in the Land of Fire and Ice

Bruce definitely needed a woolly scarf for his week in chilly Iceland with one of the library humans.

                

He explored deep inside a glacier at Langjokull – only the humans had to wear crampons. Badgers were exempt!

Bruce pretended to be a Viking while his humans rode Icelandic horses along a lava trail. He then enjoyed a bowl of soup made from geo-thermally grown tomatoes. Amazing what you can grow in Iceland with natural heat from the ground!

            

The thermal pools and hot springs at Geysir were a bit too hot for Bruce! Ouch! So he cooled down a bit on a mini iceberg at Jokulsarlon  glacial lagoon. That’s more like it!!

           

Bruce admired Oraefajokull volcano at Hvannadalshnjukur (from a distance, just in case!) and watched Gullfoss waterfall from afar! He didn’t fancy getting too close to this amazingly beautiful and powerful waterfall.

         

Bruce enjoyed the view of the cheerfully multi-coloured buildings in Reykjavik from the top of the Hallgrimskirkja Cathedral before relaxing with a well-earned Icelandic beer! It’s been a busy week for this badger.

     

Watch this space … Bruce is off somewhere warmer in a few weeks time!!
