In the middle of April I decided to go to Iceland. I had been wanting to visit for some time and with the way the world seems to be going, something inside of me said, “What are you waiting for?!” So, I headed off to Iceland to coincide with my birthday in search of adventure (doing recon for Vision Quest Retreats, travel blogging/vlogging and throwing myself into things I had not done before in a land I’d never seen before)! Below is an accounting of my experience via pictures and videos. I hope you enjoy!
Day 1: Arrived Keflavik airport at about 6:15 am, got a transfer at Reykjavik Excursions desk to the Blue Lagoon that would then take me to the city of Reykjavik and my hotel: Center Hotel Midgardur.
Day 1: Walking around Reykjavik and getting settled in my room. Below are some scenes from my first day in Reykjavik after I arrived from the Blue Lagoon. I hope you enjoy my little video!
