Iceland was one of the most magical places I’ve ever visited. The country was grand, wild, mystical… and just really insanely beautiful and the experience I had in Iceland was like no other. I think it was a photo of a glacier that I stumbled upon on Tumblr that first sparked the idea of Iceland into me. Since then, I kept coming across more photos of Iceland throughout social media so I researched Iceland online. Once I started looking into Iceland, I realized that it was on top of my travel bucket list so I decided to just visit.
The best time and the most popular time to visit Iceland is summer since the sun doesn’t set until midnight and the sun rises around 2-3am. Even when the sun sets, it’s still light outside so throughout my entire trip, the most trippy part was my body felt tired but since everything is light out, I felt like I needed to be doing something such as visiting different attractions.
I flew to Iceland via Iceland Air. They have a really amazing program called My Stopover where you can stop over Iceland on your way across Atlantic. For an example, if you were to visit Europe from America (or before you head to a different European country) you’d stop over in Iceland like a layover, but instead of just staying at the airport for few hours, you’d explore the country then head to your destination. My photographer friend (now new lover. more on that later!) Jacopo and I decided to stay 5 days here.
The first thing I wanted to do in Iceland was to visit the infamous Blue Lagoon which is a geothermal spa. It’s touristy but I highly recommend this place and I’d definitely go again. We stayed here all day soaking our bodies in the spa that’s filled with sulfur and silica which is suppose to be amazing for your skin.

The next day, we visited one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland named Gullfoss. It was my first time seeing a giant waterfall in person so like any other tourist, I snapped tons and tons of photos. Just looking at these photos brings back the sound and feeling I had when I was there.[/caption]
There was a lot of driving throughout this whole trip but I never once felt bored perhaps because the scenery in Iceland is incredible. I love the layer of fog in Iceland. I think that’s what makes this place look so mystical. I shot these images around a city called Selfoss.

I’ll be sharing more of my Iceland experience within the next few days so keep posted!! xx
