When we drove to the south of Iceland, we definitely noticed a contrast between the top and bottom half of the country. We saw less mountains (that look like they should be on a Toblerone package) and more waterfalls!

For the remaining days of our trip, we went on slippery hikes, visited many places where Game of Thrones was filmed, touched glaciers (or "diamonds"), stood at the bottom of waterfalls and stepped foot on a black sand beach! CUE THE PHOTOS!

The black sand beach was definitely my aesthetic! It still boggles my mind that sucha thing exists. I always thought people photoshopped these images on Tumblr!

We also experienced a windstorm that left us stuck in this city for the entire day. The main highway was closed, which meant we didn't do five things on our itinerary. I didn't want us to waste the whole day by sitting inside a café, so I tried searching online for something we can do.

I stumbled upon an ice cave tour! Just our luck, we were able to sign up for it 10 minutes before it started! This day turned out way better than we've expected and we agreed that this excursion was definitely a highlight of our trip!

We couldn't leave Iceland without doing the classic Blue Lagoon. It was such a great way to end our final day! We bathe, sipped on smoothies, did the face mask and died in the sauna. I'm a mouth breather and it just felt gross knowing that I was inhaling everyone's toxins! LOL

Iceland exceeded my expectations! I feel like there is still so much to see and I only got a taste of it. I would definitely love to visit this place again with Daniel.

Speaking of him, I'm so glad I got to experience it with him. He was the best companion during the 14 hour drive. I feel like I could just talk to him forever and ever. IS THIS WHAT LOVE IS? When you don't run out of things to talk about? When you feel like a week together is still not enough?!?!
