If I can make one recommendation for your trip to Iceland, it’s to hit the Blue Lagoon as soon as you exit the plane! After an overnight flight, nothing has ever felt better to me than falling in to the warm embrace of the 100 degree Celsius waters in the Blue Lagoon.
Yes this is my HELLO ICELAND I’m here pose as I take in the first of the bizarre ever changing landscape that would fascinate and delight for the next week.After picking up our little Yaris, we took off to being learning how to navigate Iceland. Luckily, it’s just a short 30 minutes to the Lagoon which meant my less than fully alert brain didn’t need to think too much! There is one main road out of the airport and following it will give you signs straight to this oasis.
Driving up to the Blue Lagoon, you’ll already be whisking out the camera to capture a landscape that defies logic. It looks like lava, but it’s covered in brilliant emerald green moss…you’d think the Wizard of Oz stopped by to pump up the color!
