Europe Part 1: Iceland

| May 17 to May 20 |
Iceland is the very first place I've ever set foot out of the US. While we were only here for about 48 hours, we packed in SO much (because we didn't sleep at all)! We barely slept because during the summer, it doesn't get dark in Iceland--there are 24 hours of daylight. It was crazy to be going to bed at 3 AM with the sky still as light as if it were afternoon. 

For our time in Iceland, we stayed in Kex Hostel in Reykjavik (definitely recommend!) and rented a car, which we drove all along the southern part of the island. We didn't venture North (where the glaciers are) because we just weren't there long enough. A lot of the time, I felt like I was on Mars. As you can see from these pictures, there is some weeeeird terrain going on. Weird, but beautiful. I would go back to Iceland in a heartbeat.
