Today I had a blessing to climb Europe largest glacier in Iceland, but sadly learned such peaceful place will be wiped from Earth completely in 70 years by global warming. We really need to be conscious to reduce carbon emission, unnecessary water waste and factory goods excessive consumption. We won’t be here in 70 years like these glaciers, but our great grand children will still be here. There is only one planet Earth, no need to trash it just bc YOLO.

- Reduce plastic usage, they are made by petroleum.
- Take initiative to get EV to reduce carbon emission.
- Always support renewable energy alternatives.
- Don’t buy things you don’t need, just because it’s capitalism.

Love the photos of the glacier and what an experience! Iceland was one of my favorite trips ever and it is sad to see the destruction of the glaciers and inaction globally to turn the tide.

France is a different beast for sure. I lived there for 7 years and loved it but Paris can also be a huge pain like most big cities. At other times Paris can be stunning and magnificent. I tend to prefer spring and fall in Paris and avoid the summer if possible.

My family and I did a tour of NE France. We hit Paris, Versailles, went down through the Loire River Valley, Up to Mt. St. Michel, over to D-Day beaches, then back to Paris. LOVED IT! Wish I could do that tour again in an AGT!

This charging station only has 50kW charging, but people can leave car here long while go to beach.

I visited Iceland last summer for a wedding and it was incredible. Hiked the volcano while it was erupting. Loved all the waterfalls, and it was just stunning. Everywhere we went it was gorgeous. Easily the prettiest place I’ve ever seen in my life.

Been visiting Europe for the last two months on my honeymoon and while parts of it are gorgeous, nothing at all has compared to the awe-inspiring beauty of Iceland.

If you still have time, go snorkel the Silfra fissure. You get put in a dry suit and get to snorkel between two tectonic plates.

Paris is beautiful in art and architecture. The part turn off the most is just have to be constantly mindful of pickpockets and scammers teams.

I thought Santorini was the most beautiful island, but Iceland easily topped it. It’s like Yellowstone National Park + Yosemite National Park + Hawaii Big Island + Canada’s Banff National Park all in one.

Just visited Santorini! I preferred Mykonos but in all my travels literally zero places hav rivaled Iceland in beauty.

Switzerland was close, but still lost our. Everywhere you turned in Iceland, it was like another Windows wallpaper. Just absurdly beautiful.

Iceland is gorgeous, but I wouldn’t able survive in 200 ~ 2000 population villages / towns. I rather pick Santorini as summer home than Iceland for overall convenience.

I wonder if there is some sort of report of a random individual wandering around Europe taking pictures of EVs in any of the newspapers yet...
