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.
…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.’
Have you been to Iceland? Any recommendations?! Let me know!
Here’s my list so far:
Golden Circle Tour
Northern Lights (fingers crossed!)
Icelandic Phallological Museum (yes. this is a thing.)
Baejarins Beztu Pylsur hot dogs (because…Bill Clinton)
