Sunset in Reykjavik, Iceland

This sunset in Iceland is one of the first pictures that I took when I arrived in Reykjavik.  First say Reykjavik three times, now try again.  I couldn’t pronounce, nor spell, Iceland’s capital city when I first arrived if my life depended on it.  One of the things that was very unusual about my visit […]

Sunset On The Iceland Countryside

This picture was taken on one the Iceland tours that I took.  The majority of people that live in Iceland live in the capital of Reykjavik (say that three times fast).   The people on the tour bus must have not liked us because we kept telling everyone to stop so I could take pictures […]

The Blue Lagoon In Iceland

Blue Lagoon in Iceland

This picture was taken at the entrance of the Blue Lagoon right before you sell your soul to enter.  A tourist trap by any definition, the Blue Lagoon in Iceland is very overpriced and they also have a salon and restaurant to please both your stomach and your urge to relax.  The actual experience was […]

A double shot of delicousness – Iceland

double shot

For those of you that know me personally, I am by no means a drinker.  But this actually intrigued me beyond belief.  We wanted to try something different and being in Iceland provided the perfect opportunity.  I present you the double shot of deliciousness.  I cannot remember the name of the drink (I should have […]

Bjork Concert Crater-Iceland

Unique Rock Formation: South Coast Iceland

Unique Rock Formation: South Coast Iceland

This unique rock formation is at the tail end of the South Coast tour in Iceland.  We enjoyed great Iceland food when we chose fish and chips at the local restaurant.  We were able to watch the sunset after leaving Thingvellir National Park as well.  I took one of my favorite picture here where many […]

Mid Atlantic Ridge: Golden Circle, Iceland
