From 91 Days in Iceland
The tiny country of Iceland was our home for 91 very big days. For three unforgettable summer months, we explored some of the world’s most unique nature. Tramping across glaciers, entering volcanoes, bathing in hot springs, and hiking across valleys of almost unearthly beauty. We also made time to meet the Icelanders: perhaps the most friendly and welcoming people we’ve ever encountered. Reykjavík was our base, but we spent time in every corner of this island nation, and experienced as much as 91 days would allow.

Whether they’ve been dealing with abusive Danes, glaciers, the plague or volcanic ash, Icelanders have had it rough. Here’s a rundown of the biggest events in the country’s history….

Three Waterfalls of Southern Iceland
“Don’t go chasing waterfalls”. Words of advice from TLC, the greatest American girl group of the 1990s. No doubt it’s a catchy refrain, but what a terrible message! Why should three women who achieved their own dreams dissuade their fans from “chasing waterfalls”? To stick to the rivers that they’re used to? I suspect T-Boz and co. were trying to nip future competition in the bud. And it’s not just bad advice on a metaphorical level. As we’ve discovered in Iceland, waterfall-chasing can be very rewarding indeed….
