My Iceland Adventure Day 1 – Arrival

Standard


Flying, you either love it or you hate it right? Well if you want to see the wonders of nature and the beauty of the world, you at least have to tolerate it, much to my chagrin. If you get your girlfriend a gift which involves a holiday you have to grin and bear it. I hate it, and while the earth may look pretty at fifteen thousand feet, and you may reach your destination in record time, I still prefer the good old fashioned modes of transportation. Ones were you are not jam packed and rolled up into the smallest possible space to fit in the maximum amount of people, give me a boat, or a car, hell even give me a horse and cart over a plane. That being said Iceland is in the middle of no where, and our flight was a smooth one, a small success.

On arrival to Iceland you are immediately struck with how sparse the landscape is, there is so much empty space, and nearly every direction you look you have a beautiful backdrop of some far flung mountain, or glacier. It truly is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, and the transportation from the airport to Reykjavik is really simple. Little tip for anyone planning to go, take your money with you and get it changed up in Keflavik airport, as you don’t get charged and therefore get a better exchange. Travelling to Reykjavik you have to either go by car, taxi or bus/coach as there is no train stations, in fact I don’t think there are any rail networks in the whole country (at least we never saw any), however the trip doesn’t take long and if you go by Reykjavik incursions they even have wifi on the coach.

Reykjavik is not like any capital city I have ever seen, if you didn’t know where you were you could mistake it for a town, not a capital city. There isn’t hordes of rampaging tourists, or hordes of people rushing around from one business meeting to the next. You don’t have to duck and dive around people on the streets, or take part in some urban assault course as you move around the capital. Like everything in Iceland, it is beautiful, simplistic and intriguing. Walking down the main street (Laugavegur), there are tourist shops to buy trinkets, clothes shops, tourist centers, bars and restuarants, everything and anything you really need. There is a lot of charm found simply walking around the city, some beautiful street art as well. We walked up to one of the churches in Iceland called Hallgrimskirkja (below), it is such a strange looking church and so beautifully designed.

On the first day we only had a little scout around the city center, as later that evening we were heading back to go hunting for the Northern Lights. We were staying in a hotel a little outside of the center, Icelandic Air Hotel, which is by the domestic airport of Reykjeavik and decided to walk back from the church to do a bit more exploring and have some fun in the snow. The weather of Iceland while cold in some parts, it isn’t as cold as you would think. On the first day the weather was comparable to a UK winter, that being said we still had thermal clothing, and I would suggest packing warm clothing if you are going in winter as the temprature does drop quite a bit at night. Our hotel it self gave us free bus rides into the city center, but it is only a 5 minute walk, the hotel had a friendly atmosphere and they helped us book and arrange our tours (there is a tourist point within the hotel). Once back at the hotel we had a little respite before excitedly heading out to the harbour to go searching for the mystical northern lights….

A Butchers Blade Is Never Dull

Standard

Our society has seen more cuts than a surgeons table
we’re tinkering on the brink our society isn’t stable
so god help you if you’re not the most able
What we’re witnessing is biblical yet this aint no fable

There ain’t no happy endings for the poor
War and disease while they do as they please
Champagne caviar dripping on a glass ceiling
Our only view the door slamming shut

Look but don’t touch
Poverty ain’t no lottery
no pot luck we’re always stuck
Too tired fending hand to mouth
to fight from mouth to mind
and this is all by design

The system is enslaved to these machine men
the machinations of these Machiavellian vampires
Money making money laundering soul destroyers
Buzzwords and soundbites puncture wounds to the mind
Try find where democracy freedom and inequality hide
point me in the right direction and we’ll see whose blind

Call it the rat race
We come from behind
Never finishing first
when your working class

The Devils Children

Standard

Thatcher threw a brick through my window
shattering our society into shards of individuality
its the great free for all on British industry

Thatcher took a cleaver to my community
The clever tricks by pin stripe media pricks
Its left a sour taste from town to country

Thatcher gave birth to a two headed dragon
Blair and Cameron the spawn of Satan
Spewing their vile bile across the whole nation

Thatcher a witches work is never done
lets hope you’ve set with the son

21st Century Lords

Standard

This is the rally cry of the welfare state
It’s time to rebel peasants
It’s never too late
Lets steal some pheasants from our Lords estate
Take back through force
what they take with deceit
Push them off their royal seat
But only with the suns seal of approval
get back on your knees and grovel

Dodgy backroom deals
squirreling away public assets
its an NHS car boot a bring and buy
They’ve crashed the economy
emergency reboot!
Our society its up for grabs
turn your back their ready to stab

Whose interests are they representing?
Corporate greed for corporate fiends
smoking on the cock of money
as they breed their pig monstrosities
ivory towers filled with stolen treasures
hidden caves on the ivory coast
playing football under the watchful eye
of Thatchers ghost
