Iceland: In Pictures.

ICELANDWe landed in darkness. From the airport to blue lagoon we sleepily gazed out our windows, the landscape dark and unfamiliar studded with lunar rocks, even in the darkness this place is unlike any other. Stars, which we always forget in our city existence, scattered the sky as we wound through the deserted countryside. In the morning, we were greeted by the above view from our porch. From the beginning, Iceland we learned would be filled with stunning otherworldly sights. 

It is difficult to describe Iceland. Other than to say: you must go. It doesn’t feel quite European, nor North American, nor like anywhere else really. Perhaps Scandinavian to some degree, but with more warmth. The people are warm, and exuberant, despite the long cold winter days. And instead of attempting to describe such a place, pictures are far more likely to give the slightest glimpse of how wonderful it is here. As I left, all I could think was: I must return, perhaps to hike the long summer days.
