    Black Church

    February 18 in Iceland

    Compared to yesterday the weather was not so good and the day not so eventful. We decided to go to the south of the Peninsula to find the black church at Buðir. It was quite crowded here so it was tricky to get a photo with no Penguins, though it doesn't look that way does it. Just after the photo was taken, loads of tourists arrived and they were everywhere. You just have to be patient ... they've come to discover the church just like we have and they want their photos too. It's just a little frustrating to have to wait while a family or small group take loads of photos of themselves including every variant of subjects in a variety of poses.

    Tony wasn't so sure about this location but felt it was worthwhile having done it. It kind've grew on him. We also met a couple of people who we chatted to, a photographer from Morocco (bet he was cold!) and an English guy married to a French lady who does photographic tours for French tourists. It was really interesting to talk to them.

    Búðir Kirche

    October 8, 2016 in Iceland

    Die Story dahinter ist Folgende: Es war einmal eine isländische Frau, die wollte eine neue Kirche bauen, da die alte zerstört wurde. Die "Väter" von der Lutherischen Kirche fanden die Investition aber unnötig! Also hat die Frau um königliche Erlaubnis gebeten und diese erhalten. Auf einem Schild auf der Kirche steht geschrieben: Diese Kirche wurde ohne die Hilfe der "Väter" erstellt! End of the story!Read more
