Iceland: May 2015

We spent 5 days in Iceland in May 2015. We flew an Icelandic airline called Wow Air from Boston. It was significantly cheaper than flying Icelandic from JFK and we had the time. We met Aunt Holly (Bill’s Aunt) at the airport. It was a quick 5 hour flight to Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland and spent the five days driving along the southern coast of the volcanic island. I have a number of friends and family who had visited the country just before us and told us how beautiful it was. But I didn’t really understand that until we got there. Iceland is one of the most stunning places we had been to. There are no barriers or railings between us and the majestic waterfalls, glacial lagoons and steep drops into the ocean… we drove around 1500 km in our short trip there. The days were long with only 2 hours of twilight and no complete darkness.

 

We can’t wait to go back and explore the rest of the island sometime in the future.
