I was lucky enough to join a writing retreat in Wales in December last year. Find out about the retreat and beautiful venue on the Canberra Romance Writers Blog
Iceland is a country I've wanted to visit for a very long time. I was fortunate to achieve that dream in mid November 2017, spending two weeks there until 3 December.

In between visiting the countryside, I spent time in Reykjavik visiting a select few of the range of museums. One of the most fascinating was the Settlement Museum in the heart of the old town. And a visit to the Volcano museum nearby proved fascinating. The National Museum and the Saga Museum were also worth a visit. The view over Reykjavik from the top of Hallgrimskirkja is not to be missed.
There were more wonderful and fascinating places, and interesting information to absorb about the country, its history, the people, volcanic history, and way of life. Too much to include here.
The short daylight hours were new to me, though I enjoyed every moment of my time in Iceland. Sad to leave such a fascinating and very different country.
