For this week’s challenge I pulled the best shots from our trip to Reykjavik and the Ring Road. Nothing says scale better than Iceland’s sweeping vistas and urban contrasts.

No real sun while we were there…and it was very cold and miserably wet! I can’t say we actually liked Iceland, but it was a memorable stop enroute to London!
Until next time…

A few weeks ago I shared the excitement of receiving my first ever Passport. Let’s just say I’m REALLY thrilled now that our flights are booked! 🙂
England here we come!
Initially, we planned to explore the UK for two solid weeks in August, but learned we could knock 400.00 off each round trip airfare if we travelled in September….and stopped for 4 days in Iceland!! How crazy is that????
We depart Orlando late on Sept 10 and arrive Iceland early the next morning. According to Moyen Brenn’s blog and flickr site, we can expect a countryside that looks like this:
and maybe even catch the Aurora Borealis!
To quote my world travelling daughter, “Iceland was never even on my radar! I’m soooooo excited!”
So here’s where you all come in. I would love recommendations for accommodations in Reykjavik, as well as the British areas of South Oxfordshire and East Sussex. (Eventually I’ll ask about Devon and Cornwall but I’m not ready for those yet! 😉 FYI: We’re inclined toward b&b/guesthouses/barges not hotels. Thank you in advance, of course!
Until next time……
