The land of ice and fire

On July 23, Shanti and I traveled to Iceland. We spent seven days traveling from Reykjavik, through the south, to the farthest western point of Flatey Farms near Hofn. The landscape was truly fascinating. At times it was filled with the greenest green and bluest blues. Other times, it was a barren and rocky landscape of black and grays that looked like another planet. We went whale watching, visited waterfalls, went kayaking in a lake filled with icebergs, saw puffins, went snorkeling between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. We rode Icelandic ponies. We finished out our trip soaking in the warm waters of the Blue Lagoon before flying home.

For those that may be so inclined, below are links to photos and videos of our trip.
