Day 4: Go where the wind takes you...
Breakfast: Miso soup, fruits, hardboiled eggs, toasted wheat bread and unsalted Icelandic Butter 🤤
It was one of the best breakfasts ever!!
We learned a whole world of glaciers!
No picture can not express how we truly felt.
Pictures can not capture the magnificent beauty of the landscape/moment.
I don't care.... I'm photobombing...😆
Diamond Beach: Real black sands...😊
Also real cold..😖
Lucky me! My guardians found a perfect ice sculpture for my photoshoot!
That's what he thinks 😈
It's okay...waves add to the scenery...
Oh @!%#*#$!!! I was wrong!
Someone save me!!! I can't swim! Preparing for his Viking burial and sacrifice to the gods...
Oh thanks the spirit of Iceland elves...
Please don't squeeze so hard....😫😫
I'm okay! I've absorbed the glacier water...I'm now invincible...😊😆
I cannot say the same for my ice sculpture...😭
East Fjords Drive: WET, WET, WET!!! Not only did we drove in the heavy rain...1/5th of the roads were gravel...😭😭😭
But the views were amazing. Sheeps were everywhere!
I thoroughly enjoyed honking at them when they are on the road and watch them run! 🤣
Iceland... even when the weather is terrible... the gorgeous landscape makes you want to stay...
Midland Drive to North of Iceland:
Great for a little 10pm exploration after a long day of driving! 😄
This midnight sun is no joke...😆
This was beautiful from the drive... but up close...it lifted our spirits by several notchs...
We were that tired ☺
I'm so much safer from this distance. 😆
Glacial water of Iceland was rumored to be the most pristine on earth... we're testing the theory ...😉
All that to quench our thirst, I didn't succumb to the rapids🤣 No polar bear dive this time 😉
Campsite: Instead of camping, we decided to drive to the waterfall to spend another night in our car. Yes, we're taking advantage of the midnight sun.
Fun Fact: Stone Cairns - Viking settlers made these as landmarks on their expeditions. Early settlers also use them to travel. They're protected and never to be tampered with. These are historic landmarks, so please do not disturb them!!! Tourists are known to stack or destroy them during their visits. Please keep these historic relics undisturbed for future generations. Thank you!
Author's Note: For those of you who thought they needed to arrange for the Viking burial ceremony... we're sorry to inform you we're still alive and well. It takes more than stormy weather to take us down. Mother Nature of Iceland Elves! Do your worst! 😝
And woke up to snow...😖
Shhh....🤫🤫🤫... they don't have to know that yet...😅
