I just made a Reykjavík coffee date with a girl from LA who met my cousin in Rome and who is graduating in Paris from my future grad program. How cool is that?! This small world of ours is kind of wonderful sometimes.Meeting my first AUP connection and a globally-conscious gal like myself is just one of the countless things I'm looking forward to during my three day stay in Iceland though. I mean, I've been wanting to go for at least a year and have been in love with Icelandic yogurt for longer. So, I also plan to hike outside Hveragedi (as per recommendations from the photographer of the gorgeous photos below), dine at Saegreiffin, spend an evening at the Blue Lagoon, and get a taste of Icelandic nightlife with a few locals... preferably one that ends with a pylsur, otherwise known as Iceland's acclaimed hot dog. Yes, I will eat the second hot dog of my entire life in about six weeks. It's all about the cultural experience!
"...nothing can equal the savor of that which has been seen, and truly seen."
Thanks again for the photos, Natt.
