I have been absolutely dying to share this story with you guys and now it’s finally here. On my recent trip to Iceland I had the chance to visit the glacier which feeds Jökulsárlón (the glacier lagoon from one of my previous posts) with constant flow of ice chips. The ancient glacier is stunning and glows blue in the sunlight.
It was definitely a trying trip. First – a short trek through the national park, past some falling rocks, across a river or two and finally across very squiggly black sand flats so I could step right up to the edge of this ancient frozen wonder. I am pretty sure I have also experienced all 4 seasons on this afternoon visit, with snow, hail, rain and wind which blew all of this in my face, horizontally. By the end of it all I was wet to the bone, those wet things started to freeze to me and my hair (think Kate Winslet in Titanic). I went through about 3 pairs of contact lenses before eventually taking them out and realising that I can see much better with my -3 vision than with my completely wrecked third set of contacts in… But the shots were worth it. So worth it in fact that I had to split this post up into two parts because I couldn’t bear not to share all the shots.
