we were originally going to make it a stopover on our longer trip later in the year, but dylan suggested that we just make a trip of its own and so that's what we've done! we're just taking a long weekend in march and adding on an extra day (that way it's only one vacation day from work) and we know that it will be a jam packed weekend! we leave on a thursday evening, arrive early in the morning on friday (especially when you consider they are 5 hours ahead of us), and leave around dinnertime on monday.
we already have so much tentatively planned and know we'll have to plan another trip in the future to make up for everything we will miss ;) renting quads and driving the mountains, glacier hiking, exploring reykjavik, horseback riding, seeing geysers and waterfalls, and (fingers crossed) seeing the northern lights. and hopefully we can make it to the blue lagoon, too. let the countdown begin. if anyone has been and has any suggestions, i would love to hear them!
