Inspired by Iceland

I’ve been craving to get out of this place for a long time, and I think I’ve just found where I want to go.

Not quite the most realistic choice, though. Why not back to the bay? Why not Portland? Or, NYC?

Well, because that’s all just too easy. I want to go where people have pride for where they are. Iceland has a population of around 320,000 proud people and lately, they’ve been stepping up the invite list for people to come check it out. The economy in Iceland has seen better times (haven’t we all), so tourism is a great import for them.

Let’s think about why Iceland is one of the most gorgeous countries on earth

-Pretty, happy people with rad sweaters year round

-The colors of green against black volcanic rock, snow, and über-blue water is unreal

-The outdoor light for photography is unreal

-The language is tricky, yet nifty

-The music is somber, yet gorgeous

-John Lennon’s got a memorial in Reykjavik

-80% of Iceland’s energy is renewable from geothermal and hydro power sources on the island

-Freedom of religion by constitution

-A fisherman’s dreamboat

-Not as cold as you’d think for being so close to the Arctic Circle

-Oh, and a giant, active, spewing volcano that caused some travel drama, but honestly look how beautiful it looks (see below)

I love Iceland. I haven’t even been there yet, but I know I love it.

She’s a hot mess of a little rock full of happy people, great art, film, music, lore, horsies, and rivers.

Someone send me there with tons of lenses and a jacket…stat.
