Spent 2 days in London before trip to Iceland and Greenland. Visited Big Ben, Parliament, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and rode theLondon Eye (Ferris wheel) for views of the city. Then walked from Westminster Bridge along the Thames River to London Bridge. Beautiful sunny day with people laying out sunbathing.

Caught early flight from London, England to Reykjavik, Iceland. Walked around the city and the harbor. Next day took a tour to the Golden Circle. This day trip included (1) Thingvellia National Parl where the North American and European tectonic plates are separating by 2 cm per year. (2) Geysir which was largest Geysir but now dormant but the Strokkur Geysir was very active and (3) Gulfoss Waterfall. The last day went to the Blue Lagoon thermal spa before my flight.
