Iceland was an incredible, incredible trip. We chose to go to Iceland because of it being one of the most volcanically active countries on the planet and because its natural beauty is just staggering. Think about it: mountains, volcanoes, black sand beaches, volcanic caves, beautiful hikes, natural hot springs, whale watching and glaciers all rolled into one country. It was a no-brainer.

If you can’t tell, it was an incredibly demanding physical trip. Climbing glaciers and volcanoes isn’t for the casual hiker, which I am. I still did it, but I was slow and a bit embarrassed at my physical abilities (or lack-thereof).
Regardless of my huffing and puffing, it was all worth it. It was incredibly gorgeous, it was a small enough country to travel to almost all of the major cities in 9 days, and I can really see myself going back at least once again.
I’ll leave you with my favorite photo from the trip that makes me look like such a badass, right?
