Yes, you read right! I went to the land of ice during winter time. This crazy kid from california went to Iceland. At least, that’s what all my family members were telling me. But hey, you can’t really blame me for jumping on 200 dollars round trip tickets.
The flight from New York City to Keflavík international airport was about 4 and a half hours. I took an overnight flight. Literally, dozed off and I was in Iceland. The flight was very smooth. It was surprising because I expected to go through snow clouds.
Landed in Keflavik International Airport. It is about an hour away from the capital Reykjavík. The great thing about iceland is that there are a lot of tour companies that will pick you up at the airport and drop you off at your accommodation. Their prices are reasonable and they come every hour.
Once I got to my hostel, I was very interested in getting to explore Iceland. Left all my luggage in my room and it was time to see this Nordic country. There was no time to waste.
Went outside and all I could feel was the harsh cold wind. I was definitely not in California anymore. Holding up my phone and camera to take pictures was like putting dry ice on your hands. The low temperatures kept stinging my fingers. Even with all that, I made sure to take pictures for you all!
As the finger-numbing wind kept blowing, I knew I was in viking land. Can’t wait to see what this country has to offer. The adventures and the experiences that I had in this in country, will stay with me for the rest of my life. I can’t wait to share it with you all.
Thank you for reading. Much love and safe travels!

wow, it looks so beautiful. Iceland is a place i hope to visit…….thank you for braving the cold to get those pictures! 🙂
I look forward to it! 🙂
Glad you got to go to Iceland. I have seen the amazingly progressive things this country has done! Looks like a great place to visit.
Yes, it’s a really progressive country. I was surprised to see how friendly everybody was. The Nordic countries are liberal in their views. Definitely go visit when you get the chance. Maybe not in winter lol
I’d love to visit one day but I wonder if I could handle Iceland in winter. Fully tropical gal here. 😂
You are brave, even your pictures look cold. Way to go!
A very nice experience and something to write home about. Lovely
Iceland is cold, but beautifully so! Which places did you visit? Snaefellsnes Peninsula was my favorite.
Good places to visit nevertheless! Seeing at least a piece of the country is rewarding in itself. 🙂
As a geographer Iceland was a must….I got to go on a field trip in 2010 just as the volcano started to erupt!
That’s the sulphur
Descended from Vikings, this is a place I must go someday, but probably not in winter! Thank you for the prompt!
Oh, I love the cold so this is something I probably would do loved!
A great post, I really like the way you write! And Iceland is such a beautiful country

I’ve always wanted to visit Iceland. I look forwards to reading more.
Such a beautiful place to be at! Thank you for sharing. – Cezane
Wow what an experience! Would you go back to Iceland?
It’s on my list! Do you recomand it for a solo traveler ?
So, what sort of food did you eat there? 😀
Haha fair enough! I think that’s fun too, to combine American food with Iceland weather 🙂
Yup, ice-cream during cold is a must-do in my opinion! 😀
