My Stopover in Iceland.


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]

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.

  2. Wonderful photos. I have also been to Iceland this year and totally fell in love with it. :) I ab love the white Isabel Marant pants, I want to find them on eBay but a bit worried about sizing, I am usually size US 8 so I am wondering if I should size up or not. Thanks! :*

  3. I went to Iceland back in March and visited these exact same places. They look so different without all of the snow. Equally as stunning with snow but I told myself I would go back during their “warmer” month just to see these places with the lush green landscape. The Blue Lagoon is one of the most amazing places I have ever been. That country is just so incredible, I recommend everyone visit.

  4. Stunning scenery, beautiful country and lovely shots! I love your blog and posts on instagram and also I have noticed the frequent presence of Mr. Jacopo lately! Good for you, Aimee!

  5. Do you recommend Iceland for weekend? I’m going to see this place next month but I haven’t so much time to spend. I think about 2-3 days only but I dont’t know if can see lots of beautiful places :)

  6. “… the most trippy part was my body felt tired but since everything is light out…” ikr when this land is one of place in the Earth that Sun always shining all day long even night came out.

  7. Woah. The scenery looks incredible and your outfits are always on point! Happy to hear that you found someone to share this amazing trip with. Also, you have a gorgeous body even though you eat quite a lot of food.
