Dreaming of Iceland

Right now I’m in Massachusetts where I lived before moving to Georgia.  I jokingly refer to Massachusetts as “The Great White North” because the winters are so cold here. I’ve never actually been to The Great White North, but I did travel to Iceland in 2014.

I had been aching to see Iceland for a long time, so I joined a trip organized by a women’s travel Meetup group and went sightseeing on my own.   I don’t regret going, but the natural beauty of Iceland is so staggering that I do regret my husband Kevin wasn’t there to share it with me.  As with my trip to India, I noticed that many Icelanders live a very simple life.  Somehow this simplicity magnifies the majesty of the surroundings.

I took 565 photos on that trip.  Here are a few of the highlights:

South coast farmland
Skogafoss waterfall
Solheimajokull glacier
Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon
Black lava sand beach – South coast
Moss covered lava rock fields – south coast
Arctic fox
Gullfoss waterfall

  1. Lisa, thanks so much for posting your thoughts and photos from Iceland. Iceland has been on my bucket list for a very long time. Too long, perhaps. BTW, what app did you use to put this together?

  2. Bob, you should DEFINITELY go! Airfare has been reasonable and with a little research I’m sure you could find a good AirBnb. I found that restaurants were very expensive, though. With careful planning you could go without it costing a lot. I’m not sure what you’re referring to about the app… email me directly and we can discuss.
