What did you do on your holidays?

Home » Newsroom » What did you do on your holidays?

It's getting back to that time when people are drifting home to Chelford after having been away on holidays.

So, if you have some great pictures or some stories of interesting things you've done, places you've been to or places you'd like to recommend to others, please send them into us here.

There'll be a prize for the best entry that we receive before the end of October.

Gullfoss

To start you off, here are a couple of pictures from our recent trip to Iceland and Vestmannaeyjar (Westman Islands). If you like the outdoor life red in tooth and claw, this is for you, particularly if the weather's OK. You need to be prepared for lava flows destroying half the town with little notice though. The top picture shows Gullfoss in South Iceland on the Hvítá (White) river which is fed by Iceland´s second biggest glacier, the Langjökull. The water plummets down 32 metres in two stages into a rugged canyon with walls reaching up to 70 meters in height. During flash floods, the water fills the gorge to the brim with a flow of around 200,000 cubic metres per second. The second picture shows the town of Heimaey from the Eldfell volcano. One night, in January, 1973, a volcanic eruption coughed up an enormous amount of lava and ash, burying many buildings in the town and causing there to be months' long evacuation of the island. There's now a 200 metre hill where once there was a flat meadow.
