Land of Fire
When I left to study abroad, I had made a sort of mental lists of places I’d want to visit. This included most of the typical touristy stops like London, Rome, Copenhagen, Paris, you know.
I was fortunate enough to meet an adventurous group of girls with a my same desire to explore the world who suggested that we take a weekend excursion to Iceland. As visiting this cold nation never once crossed my mind, I was a bit hesitant at first, especially because flights and accommodations there were more expensive than anywhere else I had looked at.
Three days in the land of ice, mountains, waterfalls, geysers, and more natural beauty and I have absolutely no regrets about the time I spent there. Being a nation of only 330,000 people, so much of the land is untouched – something we rarely get to see anywhere else in the world. Iceland was a beautiful trip, and was entirely worth losing feeling in my toes to watch the northern lights dance in the sky.
