Iceland Day One

For our first full day in Iceland my sister and I left Reykjavik for the countryside. We started in Þingvellir before heading to Gullfoss and Geysir. These pictures were all taken at Þingvellir National Park where the continental drift between the North American and Eurasian Plates can be seen in the faults. It misted on us as bit as we walked around the park, which made me quite grateful I had packed my hat. Even in the grey it was an absolutely stunning start to our trip; the entire day seemed filled with landscapes out of some epic story. Seeing all the rocky and lava-ridden surfaces, caves and dramatically cloudy skies definitely brings a lot of legends into perspective--when you hear a strange bird's crow echoing from a nearby cave trolls seem a lot more reasonable...

Oh these photos are KILLING me! I used to live there and my little brother was born in Reykjavik, but I hardly remember anything about Iceland. The only thing I remember was being blown away by the horrible wind and having to hold really tightly to people's hands. Then whenever I fell on the ice, the person would pick me up and let my brother walk until he fell on the ice, and the cycle would continue. Your pictures are definitely making me miss it.

You look adorable. (: I love the silhouette of this outfit, kinda reminds me of Minnie Mouse.

It would be great if you could answer these questions, but if you choose not to, I understand. How is it that you manage to earn enough money from a blog? (For those who aspire to be like you)
or those, who like you are introverts, working in the city/workplaces with too much noise and bustle is draining. What would you suggest for them?
(You could do this in a blog post)
