Thetunesblog Goes to Iceland

IMG_20140421_110508Last week thetunesblog flew out half of our staff to Iceland to immerse ourselves in the music, the culture, the pageantry, and the pomp. Not knowing what to expect, we were very surprised by the stunning natural beauty we encountered.

When we first arrived it was freezing cold and easter, so we found ourselves in the deserted capital “Reykjavik” which we all agreed  gave off a “poland-y” vibe.  But then the sun came out and easter ended and we found ourselves in a small bustling city surrounded by mountains and quaint colourful houses.IMG_20140426_091732Iceland is known for its geothermal heat as it is right between the European and North American tectonic plates, leading to a plethora of volcanic and earthquakonian activity. As a result of this it is surrounded by natural hot springs, which we were lucky enough to indulge in, and which at times resembled the lord of the rings.
