It has been FOREVER since I’ve taken the time to write. But it’s important for me to write and reflect on my travels; I need to make more of an effort to do so 🙂
On Bethany’s and my first full day in Iceland, we went on a 10-hour tour of the Golden Circle! Each location on the tour kept getting better and better!
Here were the stops we took:
- Þingvellir National Park
- Gullfoss Waterfall
The national park was full of history. When we were walking on the main pathway with our tour guide, we essentially had one foot in Europe and the other in North America. This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me, as someone who loves geography and travel!
The Geysir was much appreciated for two reasons:
- It’s the “original” one! This is how ours out west received their names!
- The warm mist kept me much warmer than the wind tunnels at the park did…
I have never been out west with my family, unlike many other American families I know, but I got my fix in Iceland!
Our last stop was the Gullfoss waterfall, which was BY FAR my favorite destination!
Mind you, every-other 10 minutes hail would hit you diagonally; however, with these views it was incredibly worth the unpredictable weather!
Oh, and we saw some Icelandic horses along the way 🙂
