Vígþór and I hiked around our neighborhood which boasts Rauðholar this morning. The Rauðholar were formed over 5,000 years ago and were the result of a volcanic eruption that swallowed a lake that was previously in the same spot. The excessive heat from the lava formed these red rocks hills that just aren’t as vibrant in my photos as they are in real life. But it was a stunning start to a Saturday even if we got sopping wet by the end of it. #experienceiceland 🇮🇸 #Iceland #ísland #adventuretime #expat #nature #beautifuliceland #fallegt

There are so many hidden gems around iceland. It almost feels overwhelming, in very good way, to think about exploring them all. After this day with @benjaminhardman I’m intrigued to focus on the glaciers and see what I may find. The glaciers are very dear to me, such a powerful nature, but they are disappearing very fast... not long time ago the waterfall in the back did not exist. The glacier was connected over the cliff where now stands a 70m powerful falls. In 5-10 years this outlet glacier will not exist anymore except in a memories of a day we had. #siggisworld #iceland

Tra i diamanti, gli iceberg e l'Oceano Atlantico del Nord 💙 Ho incontrato una lumaca ghiacciata 🐌 . . La Diamond beach fa parte del parco nazionale del ghiacciaio Vatnajokull. Il nome si deve alla presenza di questi bellissimi iceberg che ricordano dei preziosissimi diamanti 💖 #diamond #diamondbeach #iceland 🇮🇸 Ph: @marcopiacio

On this day 2 years ago we were at Sheep falls in Iceland. Next week we will be there again! We are so excited! This is a cell phone shot, as we didn’t know these falls were there and didn’t bring our cameras😖

While traveling to Iceland's Heimaey Island (the only inhabited island) we navigated through Vestmannaeyjar, or the Westman Islands, a stunning archipelago off of Iceland's south coast. Sometimes called "Pompeii of the North", all of the archipelago's islands have evolved from underwater eruptions. Mostly uninhabited (except note house in above pic, must be a sheep herder's house as sheep dot the hillside of the small island) the steep hillsides are home to millions of puffins and other sea bird colonies. #sonyrx10m4 #westmanislands #vestmannaeyjar #beautifuliceland #icelanddreams #dancingwizardphotography #32groovephotography photography

The Island of Heimaey, Iceland; a beautiful Island that dealt successfully with the 1973 eruption of the Eldfjall volcano. The eruption covered 30% of the island's land mass with lava. The entire island was covered with ash. As fate would have it, due to bad weather, the island's entire fleet of fishing vessels were in port, therby allowing the island's population to be evacuated, all but one. The gentleman went back to retrieve an item from his home and was overcome by volcanic gasses and and did not survive. Fishing is this island's main source of income. That was severly threatened by the flow of lava heading to the mouth of the bay entry point. The islander's came up with a successful strategy to force the flow of lava away from the mouth of the bay through the use of high pressure water hoses over a period of weeks. This had never been tried before. It worked and Heimaey Island, today, is a vibrant, bustling community. #heimaeyisland #eldfjall #vestmannaeyjar #vestmannaeyjarislands #beautifuliceland #independentpeople #walkingiceland #roadscholartours #sonyrxmoments #sonyrx10m4 #sonyimage #sonyphotogallery 📷 #dancingwizardphotography #32groovephotography

#islandia #polalawowe Ludzie w moich książkach bywają okropni. Ale i tak ich lubię. Błękitna Laguna, Blue Lagoon, Bláa Lónið. Keflavík. Ktoś próbuje się z kimś dogadać. Ja próbuję ustawić książkę prosto i dokładnie w tym miejscu na skale. Właśnie zaczyna padać. #book #bookstagram #beautifuliceland #bookstagrampl #wakacje2019 #wiolettaleśkówcyrulik #polishwriter #keflavik #bloolagoon #blekitnalaguna #czytam #kochamczytac #kochamczytać #czytambolubie #czytamwszędzie #bláa_lónið #kolorniebanadfiordem #wydawnictworeplika @wydawnictworeplika

К совершеннолетию исландцы знают 4 языка 😍 ⠀ Дети, естественно, учат базовый исландский — его в стране берегут. В 6 лет добавляется изучение английского как второго базового языка. В 12 лет дети начинают учить датский. В 16 лет — французский, испанский или другой язык на выбор. Благодаря этому проблем с общением в Исландии у вас не будет. ⠀ Здорово, да?

50 shades of blue💙 . . . If you’ve never been to see what a glacier lagoon looks like.... you’re not gonna believe me when I say it REALLY IS THIS BLUE. Photos can’t do it justice, but we were so lucky to have such a sunny day to see all the colors so vibrant when we went to visit #jokulsarlonglacierlagoon . This is one of the highlights of our trip so far so make sure to add it to your list for when you go! ❄️ . . . . #blondevoyageblog #girlswhotravel #flightattendant #travelblog #dametraveler #beautifulearth #iceland #visiticeland #visitisland #exploreiceland #seeiceland #bestoficeland #icelandtravel #icelandescape #icelandic #icelandadvice #icelandroadtrip #icelandadventure #icelandtourist #guidetoiceland #glacierlagoon #glaciersilt #jokulsarlon #icelandglacier #glacierlagooniceland #jökulsárlón #beautifuliceland #aastews #sperryduckboots

I’ve been soaking up each moment as a whale research intern here in Iceland, can’t believe how fast the time has flown by! Great day on the inflatable today with the @whalewise team, as we looked for cetaceans and enjoyed the beautiful weather. Even though we didn’t see whales today, I was very grateful to see Iceland’s natural wonders up close!

Viimane nädal või paar on olnud minu jaoks ärevad. Muutunud pole midagi, lihtsalt küsimus on selles kuidas mina asju näen. Suvi on möödas ja Hiina kalendri järgi on meil praegu tegelikult viies aastaaeg, hilissuvi, mis on kehale ja vaimule kõige keerulisem. ☆ Looduses muutub kõik nii kiiresti, et neid muutusi saame tunnistada igapäevaselt. Lisaks olen oma elu osas ette võtnud palju otsuseid mida hetkel oma rutiinidesse sisse püüan tuua. ☆ Olen seisus kus vana enam ei toimi aga uus ka veel mitte. Ja siis ongi selline vahepealne ala, kus on väga raske aru saada mida ja kuidas edasi. Tahaks puhata aga ei oska, sest suvine töötempo on kehasse sisse jäänud. ☆ Nõnda mõtiskledes saingi aru, et miks ma üldse imestan, et mul tuleviku osas segadust on. Kui mul ei ole olnud aega vaikuse jaoks, siis kuidas ma üldse saan eeldada, et selgus või uued ideed minuni saavad tulla. ☆ Selleks, et saaksime hakata asju nägema ja tegema uutmoodi on vaja uute asjade jaoks ka ruumi, korraga ei saa olla avatud nii vana kui uus uks. Sel hetkel tulebki endale vanasid tõdesid meelde tuletada, vaja on rahu, rahu ja ainult rahu! #iceland #reserved #wowyager

Chata rybaka stała u wejścia do fiordu, metr od plaży z widokiem na Atlantyk. Nocami, zamiast spać, słuchaliśmy, jak fale rozlewają się pod oknami. Hænuvík, Örlygshöfn, Patreksfjörður. Przeżycie z gatunku niezapomnianych, jakkolwiek to zabrzmi. #westfjords #icelandic #iceland #patreksfjörður #patreksfjordur #wiolettaleśkówcyrulik #kolorniebanadfiordem #wydawnictworeplika #wakacje2019 #wakacje #beautifuliceland #hænuvík #hænuvíkcottage #midnight #midnightsun #fiordyzachodnie #bookstagram #bookstagrammer
