I made my first visit to the Arctic Circle (give or take a few 100km) and visited Iceland. If you’re going to visit Iceland, you might as well do it in the middle of December when the sun rises at 11am and sets a few hours later.
Throughout my visit I was frequently told how lucky I was with the weather
“it may well be -10 degrees – but at least you can see the sky and some light.”
“We’ve just had a month of wind, rain and darkness” – these were frequent refrains.
I should add on Saturday we went to an outdoor hot water spring. It sounded crazy to go in water outside when it’s so cold, but the water was very warm. I’ve never done that before on a Saturday night.
Ironically, I left during a snow-storm in England, which left the area around London, paralysed by an inch of snow. I’m sure the Icelanders would have coped better with a bit of snow. Continue Reading →

Today the Peace Run visited Oxford. We visited the Oxford Union and two local schools. It was a rewarding day.
“Lasting peace must begin within the depths of the individual, and from there spread in ever-widening circles as a dynamic force for world change.”
