My most recent trip to Iceland was a smack-in-the-face reminder of things that I deep down already knew to be true: people are genuinely kind, the world that we live in is strikingly beautiful, and nature is fucking in charge, hands down.
I had all intentions of making a detailed list of recommendations on where to stay, where to dine, and sites to see, but then I realized you have the Lonely Planet book for that and I'm just not that organized. Allow this post to be an offering of my personal insights and experiences as captured through photography and words. My hope is that it will inspire you to visit this stark gem of a country someday.
As nature would have it, the rest of the trip was lived at her whim.
