Wild Horses in Iceland

Chris and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary with the most amazing adventure in Iceland. We spent four days walking on glaciers, petting wild horses, drinking pure glacier water from lakes, spotting whales, soaking in geothermal pools and gazing at the roaring Atlantic Ocean from the most romantic, idyllic seaside cliffs I have ever seen. It rained every day except one, which made for difficult picture taking, but when you find a place that’s stunningly breathtaking even in a sideways downpour, you know you’re onto something special. I’ll share with you a few posts from our trip over this week and next, but first, a few of my favorite moments.

    Beautiful photos! I think I saw a clip of Reykjavik on the North America show that comes on the Discovery Channel. Can’t wait to see more!
