Dance with the Devil in the Pale Moon Light

Ever dance with the Devil in the pale moon light? No? You should try it. You'll love it. If you can't find the Devil, try dancing with a sheep. There are plenty in Iceland. Vikings too - but it's tough to teach a Viking how to dance (citation needed).

Kirkjufell is a mountain that rises out of the sea in the town of Grundarfjörður, on the Snæfellsnes peninsula in the west of Iceland. The town itself is pretty and quaint; Kirkjufell, and its neat little waterfall, are simply stunning.

Kirkjufell is one of the penninsula's major draws, but it's never really overrun - not during the shoulder seasons, at least. We spent three nights in Grundarfjörður and visited this spot three times - never once did we meet another soul.

This place will always be near and dear to my heart - not only is it one of the world's most impressive sights, it is also where I got engaged to my best pal in the whole wide world. It all happened down on that rock at the base of the waterfall - I'm a lucky guy.
