Heatwave

Heat records are falling every day in Iceland, yesterday 29° celcius today 32° celcius no wind at all. Most businesses closed and every swimming pool are full and people are even sunbathing and swimming on the beach which is not usual thing to do as the sea is only about 4° - 6° warm.
So Iceland is almost on top heat rate in Europe this week, weather forecast continous to be the same for at least next 3 - 4 days, I am seriously thinking of going on a trip to Greenland for cooling down or should I fly to Glasgow on Friday ?
