I went to Iceland! And it’s as gorgeous as everyone says it is.
This was last year in October before travel was a thing of the past due to Coronavirus.
I had a months residency in a tiny little town with a population of 400 people.
The things I noticed and loved about my trip:
- Iceland is tiny – and it gives it a wonderful community feel.
- The land is sparse with black rocks and black sand, not green and lush like many think. But this makes it exotic and interesting.
- Everything is named with very long words like Reykjanesbær, Vestmannaeyjar or Neskaupstaður.
- It’s cold. No surprise there. I had to buy new hats and gloves to wear over the ones I already had.
- It’s slippery which I discovered the hard way a few times when I forgot to wear my crampons.
The highlight? The fantastic group of people I met at the residency who came from all over the world.
