replying to @RTWBarefoot @RTWBarefoot @ramblRramblR A1: As Finland is a relatively flat country, I like mountains a lot. Also, for the same reason I like deserts - we don't have them. #TRLT

replying to @HeidiSiefkas @HeidiSiefkas @LindaPeters64 I have planned to visit once again in Iceland. This time because of the Geldingadalir eruption. Hope I can do that before the eruption ends. Another dream is to travel to Greenland or Svalbard. #TRLT

replying to @TheTravelCamel @TheTravelCamel A4: Dimmuborgir in the northern Iceland. Very old and eroded volcano crater. Looks like a home of trolls or something. Dimmuborgir means 'Dark castle'. #TRLT

replying to @ASolastie @ASolastie @TheTravelCamel An apt description, like many Icelandic place names. #trlt

replying to @TheTravelCamel @TheTravelCamel A4: Another otherworldy place is the Dead Sea. It is so dead, nothing growing there. #TRLT

TheTravelCamel

replying to @ASolastie @ASolastie Why didn't I think of this answer? It is a very interesting place to visit. #TRLT

replying to @ASolastie @ASolastie @TheTravelCamel I don't have any pic to hand of it, but the drive from the Dead Sea up to Petra took me through some scenery that looked like The Moon, similar to some of the Arizona pics posted by others earlier/ #TRLT

replying to @LindaPeters64 @LindaPeters64 @HeidiSiefkas A5 The archipelago between Finland and Åland. Take a ferry from Helsinki or Turku to Åland / Sweden, especially in summer time. Hundreds of small, flat islands everywhere. #TRLT
