Entry from: Vestmannaeyjar, Iceland Entry Title: “Hot rocks and puffins” Entry: “Slept in a bit. Spent morning doing email — I keep not sleeping well because I’m worried about work and everything I’ve been neglecting with projects there. But it’s too nice of a day to worry about it. So, we departed the hotel and headed for the ferry to the Westerman Islands — which are noted for their golf, their birdlife, and for the 1973 volcanic eruption that nearly eliminated the town and closed off the harbor. Since the town is now the biggest fishing port (and producer of a large proportion of Iceland’s exports), the end of the harbor would have spelled disaster for its inhabitants. Since we don’t golf and have only a passing interest in bird-watching, we intended to focus on the eruption remains. We had no difficulty getting ferry (or “Trebeck”) tickets, or seats in the lounge upstairs … but after the ferry departed, we decided to go outside to watch our approach to the islands. (It was, I should note, a short half-hour and very easy trip over. No seas at all…). As we neared the islands, we started to scare up the sealife. Most amusing were the puffins: they shot out the water looking very much like penguins … except that the puffins would then begin to fly. Pulling into the harbor, we could see where … Video Rating: 0 / 5

The second installment of the Sleepless In Reykjavik WebTv Series, a new music webtv series that focuses on Icelandic music “The new webTV series entitled Sleepless In Reykjavík has been unleashed on the internet. The brainchild of filmmaker and music fanatic Gunnar B. Guðbjörnsson and his music producer / audio whizz brother Hlynur Guðbjörnsson, “I started the show because I love music,” states Gunnar. “I can’t play or sing a note to save my life but I’m good with visuals so this is my contribution to the scene. My brother on the other hand is one of the most talented dubsteb music composers in iceland so I’m pretty lucky — and envious of course. The show is dedicated to all Icelandic music with no emphasis on any specific genre, just good music from wherever it’s coming from.” The show will be aired roughly once a month from now on (no specific date) and the SIR crew plan to be a presence at Iceland’s many festivals and backstage at concerts.” For more information, please visit the Sleepless In Reykjavik website www.SIR.is To support us, please visit: indiegogo.com/SIRTV
Iceland – Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon is one of natures wonders where huge icebergs float around on their epic journey to the ocean. It had been raining a lot so the ice was very blue because the rainwater fills up the cracks in the ice and make the blue color more visible than ever. In the passed few years the lagoon has become the deepest lake in Iceland at 284 meters but the former deepest and now second deepest lake in Iceland is Askja which is approximately 217 meters deep. The lagoon is getting deeper every day since Breidamerkurjokull glacier which is part of Vatnajokull glacier is continuously melting faster and faster. The lakes surface was measured more than 22 sq. km. in 2009.
