I’m currently at my parents house in Minnesota where I’m enjoying all the comforts of home, but on the way over here, Daniel and I had a 3-day layover in Iceland. I am so glad we did, because it was amazing! When we first got there we went to the Blue Lagoon (20 minutes from the airport) and the next day we did the Golden Circle & Green Energy tour by the small travel company, Sterna. We ended up at a geothermal power plant, on the top of a 6,000 year old volcano, at the Geysir hot springs and my favourite spot, visiting our guides’ friends’ Icelandic horse farm! We also spent 1 1/2 days in Reykjavik, going to museums and the concert hall by artist Olafur Eliasson. We also did some shopping, including visits to 12 Tonar, where I bought a Singagpore Sling album, and DEAD gallery, where I bought one of their t-shirts.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend…

  1. Great photographs! I’m glad you had a lovely time in Iceland. I love Olafur Eliasson SO much! His “Weather Project” at the Tate Modern is the best thing I’ve ever seen in the Turbine Hall

    • Thanks Michelle! I remember his Weather Project, it’s also my favourite thing that’s been in the Turbine Hall. 🙂
