Once again I am giving you a quick preview of what is to come on the blog. We just got back from a road trip around the ring road in Iceland. It was pretty darn awesome! Here are a few of our camera phone pictures we took along the way. You may have seen them on Instagram already, but here they are again. I haven’t even downloaded my other photos. It will be a couple weeks, I’m sure. Meantime, take a gander at what is to come!
This is a photo of the iconic Blue Lagoon. I have wanted to visit it for years, so this is a crossed off list item…yay!
We took our own jeep with us to Iceland. Hey, we couldn’t have all the fun! It was definitely an experience driving, and of course we plan to write a post on it!
When you think of Iceland, you think of sheep. Lots of sheep. Supposedly there are more sheep than people, and I have to say I believe it. Everywhere you looked, if you looked closely enough, a sheep was there. No kidding.
And where there is sheep, dark nights, and long winters, there is knitting. I was amazed to see yarn sold in every grocery store and every gas station. You don’t want to get caught without enough yarn!
The next animal we saw quite of bit of were these adorable Icelandic ponies. With their shaggy manes, they would look up to see who is stopping by, then come right up to you. They were the friendliest horses I’ve ever come across.
So, of course we had to take a ride on these two cuties. It was one of the best trail rides of my life.
No trip to Iceland is complete without going to Reykjavik where there is lots of shopping! These two could be seen in a number of tourist towns ready to hawk their wares!
The geo-thermal activity was a sight to behold. Here we are at Geysir really enjoying the view and staying far away from the scalding water.
On the cool side, there are glaciers and this iceberg floating in the lagoon is over 1,000 years old.
We enjoyed some wonderful food along the way. Seafood, seafood, and more seafood!
But the thing we enjoyed most was just the untamed natural beauty that Iceland is.
Believe me when I tell you that we still have lots to show and tell about Iceland. Stay tuned!
Have you ever been to Iceland?
