We call it a ‘Show Hole’.
It doesn’t sound as good but I’m in a ‘Travel Hole’. Iceland was too awesome. I have to go back ASAP. I’m already taking travel notes! Stand by: this is my things I love about Iceland post.
It was the first trip to a new place that I’ve taken in years and years (Senegal, West Africa has been my go to in the last 7 years) and before that, before the smart phone, I cruised the globe a bit. But now WOW I’ve been kissed. AGAIN! Kissed by the travel bug. It’s like I was asleep. Awakened out of my slumber. I’m a Sagittarius so it’s the real me. But you know, work, life ……
Here’s a little list of the things I LOVE about Iceland and therefore also miss.
- you can drink the tap water
- the bread
- it’s warm inside and cold outside
- lava and steam
- fellow travelers
- Icelandic Horses and miles and miles of open space
- Laugarvatn Fontana
- not having to watch your stuff every second of every minute
- watching the sunrise at 10am
- my new coat
- every day is every season
- the sky
- the blue lagoon silica and algae masks! I did spurge and brought some home.
I cannot wait to return. In summer and winter, ring road, fjord country the highlands. Can’t wait.
I’d like to recommend Lagafell Guesthouse in Grindavik. A great base to jump off to the Blue Lagoon and the incredible Reykjanes Peninsula. There are some great places to eat in this tiny fishing village as well. Margret @ the guest house will fill you in!
In Reykjavik try to get a stay at this restored 100 year old house in the downtown area. Convenient to everything.
