Roses on one soi off the Bangla road – Patong Beach, Phuket

During a morning walk in Patong and on the Bangla road I came across these slightly sleepy roses. At night time the Bangla road is absolutely full of people, music, dancing, paid romance and some true romance, long romance and short romance… Whatever the story, the roses tell their own.

Winter Trip To Iceland – Three Angles of Hverfell Volcano

Being of Swedish origin, growing up not very far from Iceland, and having spent 25 years in the Netherlands, also not so far from Iceland, I had to come to Taiwan before Iceland became a place to travel to. But that is a reason as good as any. We visited Iceland in February this year, with the purpose of seeing Aurora Borealis which we did get to see (will show in a different post).

Iceland being located just below the Arctic circle, with its climate being arctic by definition and then kept warm by the Gulf stream. Add to that the island seem taken from a science fiction movie with its volcanoes and hot springs, it is not the average island and did make a deep impression on me. In winter the nature look infinitely hostile, it will consume you. No life in sight. Still, this nature is bubbling with volcanic activity underneath and the houses are kept warm by geothermal energy, and it feels quite safe once inside.

A closer view of the Hverfell volcano, it isn’t that big

Being there its easy to see why the location has been used in HBO’s Game of Thrones.
