There are no words for the raw beauty of this sub-Arctic island.
Actually, I think Stephen Markley says it best in his book, Tales of Iceland or “Running with the Huldufolk in the Permanent Daylight:
“The problem with driving around Iceland is that you’re basically confronted by a new soul-enriching, breath-taking, life-affirming natural sight every five goddamn minutes. It’s totally exhausting.”
And because I’m totally obsessed with Iceland, I’m going to take a mini-break from my summer adventures in mainland Europe to show you a few of my favorite pictures. I’ll be recapping Iceland soon… you know, after I finish Prague, Brussels, and Mexico City… Jeez, am I really this far behind?
But, seriously. You’ll have about 9 million posts of Iceland coming up in December. In the meantime, just know you need to book a ticket NOW! I’m already trying to figure out how to get back there to see the Northern Lights between now and my Great Escape.
