Iceland from the road
Road trips are a majestic experience we all romanticize and plan around….and then you get to your second gas stop, are sick of bad gas station food and the surroundings are less than ideal. You just want to get THERE! Iceland doesn’t follow these road rules (except for the bad gas station food.) Fortunately, Iceland is a relatively small country and we mapped our trip out with pretty equidistant legs: Reykjavik > Akureyri > Höfn. > Keflavik. Those stops encircle the entire country of Iceland, broken up by what would be 5-6 hours drives. But, as you can imagine, when you have 9 bodies with hungry bellies and full bladders, the trip is extended. And on top of that, we have all kinds of cameras, which pretty much doubles the length of every drive when in a country as beautiful as Iceland. You just can’t make it 10 minutes, before someone yells “Pull over we have to shoot this!”
So here is the photographic fruit of our Icelandic driving labor.
