Today was our final day in Iceland. We started the day off with breakfast on the top floor of our hotel. The bread in this country is just amazing. Always so light and fluffy, full of flavor. After breakfast we headed out for our last little excursion - a trip to the city's church (Hallgrimskirkja)... Continue Reading →
What do you do if you get lost in an Icelandic forest?
Stand up! Ok, ok, I cant take credit for that amazing joke - and Im sure our guide cant either - but it was hilarious and I loved it, so I had to share! Lets get into today! Let me start by saying I slept like a rock - I dont know how or why,... Continue Reading →
We saw the lights!
I finished my blog last night around midnight. I decided to get the cameras ready for what I hoped to be a viewing of the Northern Lights. Our location was spot on, up above the city, not too many lights around, and nothing too big in our way. I wanted to set up the GoPro... Continue Reading →

Shhh….it’s a secret lagoon
Man oh man did we sleep good. I woke up in the middle of the night with an aching back, but thats pretty normal at home, so nothing unexpected. We basically slept until about 930 this morning - it was great. We packed our bags and hit the road for the start of our ROAD... Continue Reading →
The land of fire and ice
Woooowwwweeee!! First I should say that it is not in fact a 14 hour travel day to get to Iceland from SFO. It was about 11. First flight was Alaska Airlines SFO to SEA. I had what was supposed to be about a 15 minute layover in Seattle, but it turned out to be more... Continue Reading →
