Also found this amazing

It is the John Lennon Peace Tower also in Iceland.......designed by Yoko Ono.....it lights up every year from his birth date 9th Oct to the date of his death 8th Dec and sends powerful light rays to the skies.

Iceland was chosen because it is eco friendly and because of the geothermal energy..beneath it are buried up to 5000,000 written wishes collected by Yoko since his death

All around the tower the word peace is written in 24 different languages.....

Liverpool gets every where

Lizzie.....I'm well jell!!!

Fabulous place to visit I'm told from others. My dad told me about the northern lights, he saw them often.
Thanks for sharing your photos. They're great! Seeing those whales with my own eyes probably would have made them water a bit.... Smile
