So a couple of weeks ago on my birthday my partner announced that my present was a surprise trip to an undisclosed location. When we arrived at the airport last Thursday night I still had no idea where we were headed; an exciting adventure for someone who travels as much as I do. I thought maybe we were traveling to New York or perhaps even Montreal, the last thing I considered was a long weekend in Iceland.
As I later learned, Icelandair offers a number of great package deals for a weekend away. Add to that the fact Iceland is less than five hours from the East Coast and you have a winning combination.
My first impressions of Iceland are all positive. The city of Reykjavik is what I expected, a decidedly maritime capital with a tinge of salt air filling one’s nostrils. It’s winter so it’s mostly dark, but that hasn’t put a damper on our spirits. There is so much to do and see that it’s been hard finding the time to do it all.
I will write about all of our adventures, but for now here are some photos of our Iceland adventure.
