"You're getting older. Your journey's been etched on your skin." James Blunt & Mark Batson, 1973, All the Lost Souls.
The first time I heard this song, it made me stop and think about my life and my own journey. What all has been etched on my skin? What is still waiting to be etched? This blog is about the Traveling Hillbilly's journey. Please travel along and share your own journey. There's no better way to learn about life, about others, about ourselves, than by traveling the globe.

The Golden Circle tour - Part 2
The third stop was the Geysir geothermal area, home of the famous Strokkur geyser that shoots up almost 100 feet in the air every 4-7 minutes. It's an interesting site to see the steam rising in pockets everywhere, then there is the amazing orange clay, contrasted agains beautiful greenery. A very interesting site to see. The water is beyond the boiling point, so too hot to touch! Luckily there is the Blue Lagoon area, in Grindavik for some nice warm water soaking. But more about the Blue Lagoon later.

The final stop was the Thingvellir National Park. But it deserves it's own posting.
