Iceland definitely lived up to its namesake! Glaciers were ever the companion during our drive on the Ring Road. The most beautiful view, though, was definitely at Jökulsárlón, a glacial lagoon in the southeastern part of the island. The lagoon has been expanding over the last 100 years or so. A boat tour took us among the giant, bobbing ice blocks. The floating pieces of ice break off from the Vatnajökull glacier before heading toward the Atlantic Ocean through a narrow channel. Some of the ice find a temporary home on the black sand beach before their final oceanic destination. We stayed at a hotel not far from the lagoon, and I was able to go back around midnight for an hour long sunset that I won’t ever forget!
