We're currently traveling the length and breadth of Iceland. The purpose is to film some of what Iceland has to offer but probably haven't heard of.

There is always a queue in front of this restaurant, but that really doesn't matter. And no, it's not MacDonalds - they've already closed down in Iceland, probably the only country in the world where they went out of business.

So, tonight we took our Eldhús here and when you look out of the window you only see blue water. This blue water is our direct connection to mother nature. It comes from the sea and deep, deep below us.

"There is more salmon in this river, then the whole population of Iceland". Johannes who is our surprise guest and a professional in the art of catching salmon is tells us. He tells us many stories about catching a salmon and from what he says it seems to me that it is much easier to catch a salmon in Ranga river then it is for a local to find a date in a bar in Reykjavik.

Today we have our second 'premiere' event: Icelandic sushi with the Mayor of Reykjavik. The first premiere event was the minister's footbath, and the last - yet to happen - is pancakes with none other than the president himself.

After a wonderful evening in Stokkseyri we head out further East to the picturesque Seljalandsfoss waterfall that stands at the roots of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano. Eyjafjallajökul can be shortened to E15 (an E followed by 15 unpronounceable letters!)

I was a bit nervous placing Eldhús at the end of an old dock in Stokkseyri. When I was 12 years old working on a farm one Summer I learned how to drive a tractor backwards with a trailer full of hay.

It's day four of our trip and it feels quite strange to be parking our Eldhús among all these beautiful amazing old houses of Reykjavik. If Eldhús were a person, it would feel honoured and grateful for being here.

Here it's de rigeur to get semi naked with total strangers and discuss politics or the weather. As Jon neatly puts it; you have pubs and we have hot baths. Everyone stripped off and we were warmed by the heat from the center of the earth. Then off to the party.

On the drive out there we were surrounded by a huge lava field of indiscriminate age. Well, it looked new but is very old, if you know what I mean. It was broken and covered with moss. As I looked out of the window I imagined that all earth or soil is just millions of years of moss and forests built up on top of lava.
