And so we reach Part 4 of our journey across the land of Fire and Ice. Our last day in Iceland was an eventful one but if you’re joining the party late and would like to start the story from the beginning, you can find Part 1 here.
Our final day started early. We had a lot of ground to cover and a whole city to see, so once an obscenely large bucket of Skyr had been consumed, we were out the door and on our way. Continue reading “Our Trip to Iceland – Part 4”
