This time next week I will be in Iceland riding a rather special kind of horse that has pretty well remained unchanged for 1000 years since they were introduced by the vikings to Iceland.
If you don’t know much about horses then just consider the hardy little horses the 4×4 (SUV?) of the equine world.
Really this is just an excuse as to why I have not prepared a post for the blog today and I won’t be doing one for Friday either. Brian on the other hand will be hard at work producing loads of new and original content for Shadow World.
For me, I have to clean and disinfect all of my riding gear today as they take disease control very seriously in Iceland and you cannot bring horsey equipment into the country unless it has been cleaned and disinfected 7 day in advance.
I just need to keep my fingers crossed that the volcano at Hekla doesn’t erupt before I get there. I don’t mind not being able to leave but I don’t want my flights cancelled on the way in!
