A Sunny Day In Reykjavík

Gullfoss waterfall + Geysir


Luna + me at Gullfoss.

We got home from the summer cabin this afternoon. We didn’t make all the stops on the way home that we’d wanted to as we were tired and Luna was getting fed up with being in the car. Oh well. We did however stop by Gullfoss (the “golden waterfalls”) and Geysir yesterday. They’re not my favourite places simply because they’re as touristy as places get in this country. Spectacular & well worth visiting, yes, but hidden treasures they are not.

I of course took eleventy bajillion pictures:

On a completely different subject, I forgot to update that Raven does not need glasses. Yay! She was a little disappointed so she got a pair of purple sparkly sunglasses as a consolation prize.

In other Raven news, she’s officially on school holiday for the next month. I have no idea how we’re going to keep her occupied! She’s already bouncing off the walls and talking about wanting to go back to preschool to see her friends. I guess we’ll need to line up some play-dates. She’s such an intense, energetic kid that keeping her busy is no small task. There’s usually a lot going on downtown during the summer (festivals, free concerts, etc.), so we should find something.

  1. What a beautiful place. Thanks for sharing!

  2. it’s a breath-taking scenery!

  3. It is beautiful – and as the Golden Circle captures all the tourists it leaves all the rest of Iceland for the locals to enjoy in peace!

  4. It is beautiful. My pictures don’t really do it justice!

  5. Those pictures are amazing! I had no idea that Iceland was so beautiful – and that I need to see it in person. :)
