After Spain Luke and I flew up to meet Laura and Bryce in Iceland where we divided our time between scouting snow, touching (and even tasting!) 1,000 year old icebergs and trying to keep warm in the freezing 0-6 degree chill. There really is too much to see in Iceland and despite its temperature I absolutely fell in love with its icy surreal landscape and natural wonders.
I’ve never worn so many layers in my life (besides that one time I bought too much vintage in Melbourne and had to wear half of it back on the plane with me to avoid excess luggage!) nor sat in a car with heated seats before – a must when you’ve been tiptoeing across glaciers at Jokulsarlon lagoon or staying up late to spot an Aurora Borealis. And who would of thought mittens are ridiculously practical and earmuffs keep your head just as warm as beanies? Iceland really is a world within a world and I can’t wait to share with you a place that had me in awe during every. single. moment.
