Chasing Sheep In The Land Of Fire And Ice

I think this may be one of my favorite topics to write about in regards to Iceland.

The Skogafoss Waterfall

As we jumped off of the tour bus, our guide spoke to us in an uplifting, yet somewhat serious tone “You are about to see the most beautiful waterfall in all of Iceland.

The Geothermal Park In Hveragerdi Iceland

After discovering geysers on the famous “Golden Circle Tour” in Iceland, we wanted to see more of these epic natural wonders before we left.
