Land of Ice

Land of Ice

Greetings from…ICELAND!!! It’s definitely cold here but the beautiful scenery more than makes up for it. With a population of just 330,000 (plus or minus) and a super low crime rate (think: 1.2 murders a year), this peaceful country is a true gem. Check out some pics below and don’t forget to follow @jackiejackiejoyjoy for more adventures!

Tyler and I went on a walking tour and I was the model for this super cool glove that doubles as a drink holder! Hahah greatest invention ever.

Reykjavik in ONE WEEK!

Reykjavik in ONE WEEK!
This time next week i’ll be in iceland! ahhh!

I’M SO EXCITED. But…

…I still need to pack. I’m stressin’. Wow Airlines only allows passengers ONE carry on…no personal item. What’s a gal supposed to do without a handbag?! Eek.

Packing for 3 weeks with one carry on is an impressive feat. Luckily all the places I’ll be staying have laundry facilities soooo that’s a plus. I’ve already told everyone that no souvenirs will be bought; y’all are getting postcards, which in my opinion, are SO much better. I’ll take a postcard over a tchotchke (think: chotchsky) any day. #snailmailforever

I’ve been trolling the Iceland and Reykjavik tags on WordPress/Instagram and I’m just getting progressively more excited.

Also, have you noticed EVERYONE has been/is going there?! A woman in my temp office just booked a trip to Iceland for next year and when I went to the bank to pick up some Icelandic currency the banker was like, ‘oh I just went there with my buddy a few months ago.’
