Land still taking shape

The youngest country in the world
Geologically speaking, Iceland is hardly out of playschool, since it only began to rise from the North Atlantic seabed about 25 million years ago, the product of volcanic eruptions that are still going on today. Parts of the country are still so rugged that American astronauts chose Iceland as a training ground to prepare them for landing on the moon. And Iceland is still taking shape before peoples eyes: the newest land is Surtsey, an island which rose from the sea during an underwater eruption off the south coast in 1963.

Breath taking photo's Bogib. Need to write Iceland down for a future holiday destination. I'd like to drive one of those 1500hp Tonka toys over some of that fantasic scenery or do a bit of Paracarting across that beach of yours.

I see your a purchasing and sales manager, it wouldn't be for the Icelandic tourist board would it!!

Andy

No Andy (Hightower) I do not work for the Icelandic Tourist Beareau although I love promoting my country. I also like your neighbourhood as I have been there many times in the past. I actually work for three companies, primarly for a pharmaceutical company as assistant purchasing manager covering our factories in Iceland and Malta (this position I will take middle of this month), then I am helping my sister and brother in law at their business as purchasing/sales manager they are sole supplier and installer of blue lights / sirens and communication systems to the Icelandic Police, Ambulances and Fire services (www.radioraf.is) and finally I am purchasing supervisor consultant to a RV company (which imports and sell tent trailers). In my spare time I spend with my family, traveling in my country and abroad also I am working on starting RIB racing again in UK as from 2005 season. if you come over please pop in for a tea

Andy not a problem I will have loads of supply, I know Raclet very well as I sold it for few years same as we represented Conway over here too, however Combi Camp is the one I know best and is the most popular tent trailer in Iceland and has record since 1967, I have been sellling tent trailers since 1987 and I import my first boat 1978. If you are thinking of bringing your car and Raclet over have a look at this website. http://www.smyril-line.fo/
