After countless trips to the Houston Camera Exchange, REI, and Whole Earth Provisions, we are finally embarking on our journey this coming up Tuesday. I am anxious to be away from friends and family and to have a total fomo (fear of missing out), but i know that everything will be worth it once I step off the plane. Expectations: arctic landscapes, aurora borealis, ice caves, a nice summer temperature and a regular amount of sleep. Reality: summer and luscious green landscapes, melted ice caves, barely any darkness, 50 degrees at the peak of the day, and 20 hours of daylight. This is my intro to my time in Iceland. Follow me and vicariously travel to Iceland through my pics and blog updates!
