This feels like a dream. The most unforgettable part of our trip to Iceland was when we took a ferry on a whim and ended up on a tiny island. Population~100. There was a playground with a trampoline and we started jumping and all the kids came out and played with us! There are only 11 kids that attend the little one room schoolhouse and we met about half of them! It was unreal. #travelersnottourists#epiciceland#adventureswithpaul#adventure
Oh yah one more thing about Iceland, coolest thing I’ve ever done, these are the trenches I went snorkeling in, with 34degrees glacier water. Silfra: Where the tectonic plates between North America and Eurasia have separated, and continue to separate about 2cm every year. #nowyouknow
Out of all the *thousands* of waterfalls we saw in Iceland, I think this one was my favorite for many reasons. 1. Legend says that in the year 1000, the pagan idols were thrown over this waterfall by the chief as Christianity was accepted as the main religion of Iceland. 2. Size and Power - this waterfall stretches much wider than the pic could ever show. 3. Accessibility - nice short walk to see the falls from many angles (above on both sides as well as a short hike to the riverside). #epiciceland#adventureswithpaul#godafoss#chasingwaterfalls
Have you ever thought about the nature of Water?
Roni Horn’s “Library of Water” located in Stykkishólmur was an otherworldly and impactful installation that I had the chance to visit with @emilypayneart, @aimeebeaubien , and Esther.
These glass columns embrace melted glacier water collected from different parts of Iceland, reflecting, distorting, and clarifying everything which surrounds them. The window view behind each column portrays the landscape in a way you remember things from a dream...
I felt as if the purity of water reflects the true nature and innocence of the landscape and of us, as Iceland does itself.
One of coolest "hidden" gems in Iceland. Bruarfoss, or bridge-falls, is also one of the most unique waterfalls in the whole country possessing a slew of cascades, all meeting at this point in the middle of the river.
