. . . . a few more photos take off into the Universe. The purebred Icelandic horses and hundreds of sheep meant stop-and-go driving. “Pull over, please . . . .one more picture.” I love quirky, humorous signs and found a few. The trolls in front of a Reykjavik tourist shop reminded me to wear sunscreen. Until next time, Iceland, keep the winds blowing and the drinking water ice cold.
Icelandair offers independent self-drive tours. I followed a 7-day glaciers, geysers, and waterfalls itinerary that covered 800 miles. Being on the road meant few conversations with people who call Iceland home. A taxi driver said that people who receive retirement benefits will not see an increase in 2016. He also said that Harpa, Reykjavik’s concert hall, was a financial drain. Lacking conversations about politics and education, I focused my Nikon on Iceland’s physical beauty.
