People Come to Iceland for the Nature, but…

… I come for the cities.

Welcome to Vik, sprawling metropolis of 291 people on the floor of the sea. For Gunnar, this was a last remnant of Atlantis.

Welcome to the Vik suburbs! Well, urban sprawl, eh, but, still, the Atlantic drop straight off and smells only of iodine and salt, so that’s ok, then.

And the waves of the Sea of Atlantis splash up over the bones of the world.

I like it that it does that. I just wanted you to know that tonight. Whatever ladder you use…

… to climb out of the surf…


… and make land.
