Iceland: The after action report. We flew home and tipped our body/sleep acclimation fully over for the second time in a week. I fully embrace that I am a delicate flower and such jagged transitions mess me up for quite a while. 4 days after returning and I am starting to see straight and walkContinue reading “Iceland – the after action report”
We spent our last morning wandering Reykjavik, shopping, seeing the sights and gawking at other people doing the same thing. We went to the church, looked around, remarked at its impressive and austere nature, and then took the elevator to the top to check out the city view.

At one pointContinue reading “Iceland – Geothermal valley”
…and while we were walking along the black-sand beach we stumbled onto a fashion photoshoot. The angry, super thin model was freezing her butt of in the icy wind. Kaety spent some time walking down the beach emulating the look you have to have to be a fashion model on the black-sand beach.
We headed out along the southern coast route today to see various waterfalls and the black-sand beach. In the Westfjords we’d gotten used to a landscape that changed every 5 minutes. Along the south coast route the landscape was more of a long game. Big sweeping hills with peaks of glaciated mountains in the distanceContinue reading “Iceland – The South Coast”
