Iceland - Oct 2013

December 27, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

the land that time forgot. for it's only just begun.

it was number one on my bucket list of places I want to see someday. for over 30 years. something about this far off otherworldly land beckoned me since I was a child, and so... without further ado, decided it high time I hightailed it over there. and that's just what I did for my 40th birthday. 

Iceland was the most amazing journey I've ever taken in my life. the man and I spent two weeks driving the perimeter of the country. we quickly realized, two weeks is two months too short. for as small as this little island is, it's larger than life while driving on battered roads in questionable elements all whilst in a tiny Yaris yet to have its snow tires.

what an adventure!

the landscape is unforgettable and overwhelming. in the span of driving just four hours, it feels like you may be on three different planets due to the abrupt change in topography. all breathtaking. some bleak. others, downright terrifying. and all mindblowing. 

we fell in love.

and wish we could've spent months there satisfying our curiosities. alas, we were/are grateful for our two weeks and wanted to share the highlights from the most brilliant place either of us have been to on this amazing planet, thus far.

I hope you enjoy and someday get a chance to visit this land like no other. and if you have any questions regarding, please don't hesitate to ask. I'm just an email away.

cheers~
