For years Iceland was a part of my teaching. It has plate tectonics, volcanoes, geothermal heat, and is warmed by the Gulf Stream. My students saw lots of photos of Iceland - but I had never been there. I've finally made it to Iceland, taking a 3-day layover on a flight from France. It is just as wonderful as I had thought!
