Land of Ice

I have the deepest urge to travel to Iceland. Deep, deep, deep.
Although not the "traditional" travel destination, my strong fascination began when I caught a glimpse of a photograph of the grass houses. I could almost feel the crisp Iceland air turning my cheeks the softest shade of pink, tangling the ends of my hair.
I could just imagine the high I would get amid the glaciers, the grass houses, the rolling hills, the Northern Lights, the gorgeous azure skylines, the jaw-dropping waterfalls, the beautiful people.
My camera would be exhausted afterward. The pages in my journal would be, too.
I think my eyes would turn greener from all the beauty.
And the music? Well two of the most amazing bands share their roots in Iceland. Sigúr Ros and Múm would, without a doubt, be my soundtrack.

So to leave you with a little feel of my Icelandic love, I'm sharing just a few of the insanely gorgeous views and a little bit of what Iceland has to offer. If you would like to learn more, visit this Icelandic travel website.

I agree. It looks like a chillingly beautiful place to visit. Such stark contrasts.
