A geological start

Geologically speaking, Fault Line Living truly began today with us visiting the dramatic ‘start’ of the fault line we are following in Iceland – the Mid-Atlantic Ridge – a massive 18,000 km rift between two of the earth’s major tectonic plates. We visited the point at which the ridge enters…

Are we nearly there yet?

We’ve been on the ferry to Iceland for two days now. I think it’s safe to say we’ve all got cabin fever. This has been our entertainment:

Princess Lottie

Today we pointed Lottie’s nose north and cruised up the stunning Danish coastline towards the town of Klitmoller – otherwise known as Europe’s windsurfing mecca. It was all we could do to stop Lottie becoming airborne.

To be honest, even though…

Medical training

What have a Hobo, a Brazilian Wanderer and a Neil Youngi all got in common?  No, you probably didn’t guess it – they’re all spiders we can expect to make camp with over the next three months.  Lovely.  And more than a little frightening if you’re jumpy around even the…

Off-road training day 2

One of the highlights so far. All three of us went to Land Rover Experience at Eastnor Castle, where Land Rover have access to the 5000 acres of mud tracks, steep hills, rivers, and forests at the foot of the Malverns Hills.
Here we got to experience the Defender in its…

Off-road training day 1

Day one at Land Rover Experience. See if you can spot the bit where one of us has a little driving ‘wobble’…
