Iceland Ring Road
29 May 2018 — 11 Jun 2018
A trip years in the making, by which I mean my buddy Herb and I had put it off for years as Iceland seemed so expensive (and we were so broke). I eventually pointed out that Iceland would always be expensive and we’d always be broke, so we may as well do it already. A few months later we were landing in Keflavik airport.
The whole affair turned out to be surprisingly affordable (thanks to the combo of a rental car, camping, and grocery stores). And the returns were priceless. Iceland really does feel like another world, and the scarcity of people outside Reykjavík just adds to the feeling of being a lone explorer on an alien planet.
It’s a planet I can’t wait to revisit. Next stop: the Laugavegur Trail.
