This Summer marks our 10-year wedding anniversary. We also run a business together from home, so this is a BIG DEAL. We are proud. We had been discussing a celebratory "Honeyversary" trip since – well, since our Honeymoon. We had seen an uptick in friends and clients visiting Iceland recently, so we decided to follow the crowd. And although we ELECTED to leave our lovely Spring for rainy, cold Iceland – we picked the right destination.
Iceland reminded me of California. Looking out the window on the highway, you could easily be on your way from L.A. to Mammoth mountain to go skiing. Flat, tree-less plains met by majestic snowy mountains. But Iceland is the opposite of the dry desert it looks like at first glance. Fields of lava rocks are perpetually wet, and covered by a thick squishy layer of moss. Waterfalls peek out of the steep cliffs every few miles, and the sun never truly goes to bed. It was a treat to witness this unique corner of Earth – one which will offer Fall travelers a totally different experience.
Sidenote: we take a lot of pictures. This is what we do. Part 1 is the more urban part of our Honeyversary. Please check back tomorrow for Iceland Part 2 when things get a lot icier!
