Well, since it was Thanksgiving for most of you yesterday I thought I'd give my thanks to you all for the lovely messages on my last post! Really glad to have the support, during the good times and the bad! So, in keeping with my promise to write about good things... here are a few photos from my recent trip to Iceland! I had SUCH a wonderful time, it's an amazing, enchanting country. You feel like you are at the end of the world, or on another planet. Or at the beginning of time on ours. Steam and sulphur rise up from the ground, volcanoes rumble all around, glaciers advance from the mountains and the sky is lit up in technicolour. View from the church tower in Reykjavik:
Sulphur springs - it was pretty stinky but beautiful!
View around the sulphur spring, does it not just look out of this world?!
Another area with hot springs - it was freezing outside though, hence the steam..
A small island called Videy, with the Esja mountain behind. This is just outside of Reykjavik
The town of Grindavik
Northern Lights
Glacial iceberg lagoon at Jokulsarlon
Just lovely :)


  1. Amazing pics Squirrel!! Jealous you saw and took great photos of the Northern Lights. Hope one day I can see them as well!

  2. Just lovely sums it up. btw, I agree with Jenn ... I'm jealous, the iceberg lagoon is cool but would really love to see the Northern Lights.

  3. Looks amazing! I've wanted to go there for sooooo long. Someday...

    Glad you had fun!

    :) L
