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.
