We went to Iceland! In December! With only 4 hours of sunlight! Yeah, when you say it like that, it doesn't sound like a great idea, but it really was a great trip. We found a deal online to go to Iceland to see the Northern Lights and stay in Iceland for 4 days. Julie's parents and my parents took turns watching Noah while we were gone, he probably would have been really cold if he came!
We took off from Denver in the late afternoon on Sunday, and landed in Iceland on Monday morning. We checked into the hotel to take a nap and eat some breakfast, and we hit the town after that. We got a bit lost at first, but found the big church in town and walked along the main shopping street in town.
|The church has a big statue of Leif Erickson outside|
|The Church was mostly gray except for the organ pipes|
|A row of houses from the Church Tower|
|If you look real closely, you can see the Noodle Station, where we ate|
|The new opera house in Iceland|
|After our boat cruise, it was chilly!|
The glacier hike was amazing and probably one of the highlights of the trip, but we didn't get to see the Northern lights this night. That's a shame because we had our tripod ready for pictures!
|The volcano is up to the left, these farmers didn't evacuate!|
|Julie geared up for the hike|
|The moon over the glacier|
|A neat tunnel in the glacier we got to hike through|
|A neat statue on the bay|
|The Blue Lagoon, it was super duper windy|
