www.adventures.is We take our course east from Reykjavík along the tabletop mountains and down to Lake Thingvallavatn. Here we stop to visit the National Park Thingvellir where you will see for your self one of only two tectonic rift valleys in the worlds, created as the continental plates slowly drift. Þingvellir is also the only UNESCO’s cultural world-heritage site in Iceland. From there we take the trail behind the picturesque shield volcano Skjaldbreid and along our second biggest glacier, the Langjökull. After about a two hours drive on mountain trails and some river crossing we get back to normal roads again just above Gullfoss waterfall. We will make a short stop and view the spectacular 32 meter high cascade before driving to the Geysir hot springs which are only 10 km down the road. At Geysir we will see a variety of geothermal pools and erupting hot springs, surely one of the highlights of any visit to Iceland. Drumbo river rafting basecamp is our stop for lunch and a great rafting trip on the glacier river Hvítá is the culmination of our adventure. The Hvítá is a beautiful river running through an amazing canyon, with fun rapids and a great optional cliff jump. Afterwards the showers and sauna are at hand before entering the road again. This trip offers an amazing ride through the landscapes and natural forces that have shaped and continue to shape Iceland. Video Rating: 0 / 5
In 2008, guys from Warren Miller came on a sailing-skiing trip with Borea Adventures. They enjoyed the best Iceland has to offer in backcountry skiing, while they explored the remote Jökulfirðir (Glacier Fjords) and used the sailing vessel Aurora as a mother ship. The result appeared in their latest movie, ‘Children of Winter’. www.boreaadventures.com Video Rating: 5 / 5

Figurative examples are given concerning all this. Also, about how the will must be guarded in one’s actions. BOOK 4Chapter 67 SAINT BRIDGET PATRON SAINT OF EUROPE FINAL PART Second, God’s unchanging plan appears in trees, because sweet trees bear sweet fruit and bitter trees the opposite. A date has both a sweet pulp and a hard stone. Similarly, it has been foreseen from all eternity that wherever the Holy Spirit dwells, there all worldly delight turns vile, and all worldly honor becomes burdensome. In such a heart, however, there is so much strength and hardiness from the Holy Spirit that it is not cast down by any adversity nor overly elated by any success. It has been similarly foreseen from all eternity that wherever the devil’s briar is, the fruit will be red on the outside but all unclean and full of prickles on the inside. Thus, while there is momentary and apparent sweetness in the devil’s delight, it is full of thorns and tribulations, because the more someone gets entangled in the world, the more heavily that person is weighed down by the burden of the account to be rendered. And so, just as every tree produces its fruit according to the kind of roots and trunk it has, so too every person is judged according to …
