Iceland: An adventure to tell about

Exploring Iceland

Hi everyone. Normally I write my blog in Dutch but sometimes I’d love to write in English as far as I can. Feel free to contact me if you see any bad English words or sentence. No problem at all! 🙂 So anyway…I got the chance to fly to Iceland with Icelandair.
The #MyStopOver experience. Staying at the Dyrhólaey Lighthouse as a Grande Finale! Such a great experience I had. Flying Saga Class. That’s Icelandair’s business class. I have met amazing people and saw the most beautiful places. Driving around in a Land Rover Discovery with WiFi with the best personal guide you can imagine. All in one package. Ain’t that just fantastic?

Food and Colors

Eating the best local food there is. The famous Smoked Lamb and the Arctic Charr. Don’t forget the local volcano soup at the The Old Cowhouse Restaurant that I had for lunch during our trip from Reykjavik to Dyrhólaey. It’s all so tasty and smokey. I love that. Especially when you see so much beautiful places. Experience the vibe. Typical Icelandic landscapes with green hills and lots of rocks. Icelandic horses and sheep all over the place. All those colors me as a photographer can wish for. Green, brown, grey, blue, white, orange, purple and black. What a great combination. I think its personal but a dream came true. So thats why I’d love to share a few of my best photos. I’ll mention the location per picture and would love to get some feedback or leave a comment.
