The tour of the Snaefellsnes peninsula

A country of rainbows

“In Iceland, if weather does not suit you, wait 5 minutes.” The proverb (quoted approximatively) was verified almost fifteen times during the day. Beautiful thinnings follow a fine rain, the clouds suddenly giving way to rainbows. I flatter myself to see two in the year in France. Here, we saw …
