My favourite place
This may be a surprising choice as it’s not comfortable or obviously 0 appealing I’m sure many people gravitate towards the 17 of Venice or the beauty of Sydney but the place that does it for me is a remote valley in Iceland. Far from anything man-made, it was created by a violent natural catastrophe. It would have been a challenging place to live under any circumstances but thousands of years ago a volcanic 18 under a glacier caused a flood that carved out a huge canyon. 19 walls of rock on either side protect the valley from the 20 of the ferocious Arctic winds. Here a forest has grown up in a 21 area of calm. I find it has its own 22 identity, which some may find 23 or even threatening. However, it draws me back time after time. I stay in the campsite and it gives me a new perspective on my everyday life. It makes me appreciate the formidable power and 24 force of nature!
