Ya'll. I know it's been over a year and I kept telling myself I'll get around to it eventually, but apparently time got away from me..so here we are over a year later and I'm FINALLY sharing our Iceland adventure.
What a frickin' DREAM this was. I sometimes still think I actually dreamt it. But nope, photos for proof.
I could go on for days and days about how wrong every person was who told us "5 days is more than enough". SO SO wrong. I would escape there for months if I could.
Between the beautiful views..the food..the lagoons...our bff girl's trip could not have been any more perfect.
As all good stories go, this one is no different...I won't lie: Anxiety got the best of me and we had quite the rocky start (sorry girls). Flying is NOT my thing...my people know this. But there was no way I'd be missing out on what I now realize was a trip of a lifetime!
Things settled for me as we landed and though it was wet and cold outside, we pushed through..
By someone's suggestion, Lena (our trip coordinator who also had the flu and still climbed up over 500 steps because she's a damn QUEEN) suggested we unwind at the Blue Lagoon as our first stop before heading to the Airbnb.
THIS is where the dream began and the rest is history...I can't speak for the other two, but I will, nothing left us disappointed. We cooked almost every meal and yet the same ingredients we'd use back home tasted fresher and better. We came across the most gorgeous Icelandic horses. We visited the most amazing waterfalls. We regret nothing.
We celebrated Lena's 30th birthday in the most epic way ever. (Simone, our other boss QUEEN, organised a day for Lena to take off from driving and responsibilities) I was just the camera bitch, and absolutely proud of it!
I'm packed and ready to go back...
