Decided to write up on my trips to both Iceland and London because I really miss being there. The hot weather in Singapore is driving me nuts! It makes me wanna pack up and head up to Iceland. I’m gonna separate it into two posts. They’re probably gonna be really long so….to whomever is reading this, I hope you enjoy reading these posts 🙂 To those who don’t, get out of my site!!
The flight to Iceland was long and torturous. It took us more than a day to get there as we had two stopovers, Dubai and London. By the time we reached Iceland, we were so exhausted! The weather there was freaking cold! The minute I stepped out of the airport, all I could see was snow! Everything was so white! As it was midnight, we headed back to our hotel for some much needed rest.
The next day, we decided to explore Reykjavik. So, here are some photos that we took on our first day….
The second day, we joined a one-week tour group that brought us to the South of Iceland for sight seeing and to catch the Aurora. Enjoy the photos taken during the tour 😀 FYI, these photos were taken with my iphone. No filter needed!
On our last night of the tour, we finally managed to catch the Aurora! Sorry no pictures of that as my iphone is not sophisticated enough 😦 We were a little disheartened thinking that we might not be able to catch it as there were no sightings on the first few nights. Waking up at 2am and going out to the field in just our PJs, was definitely worth it! The Aurora was breathtaking!
The last two days in Iceland was free and easy for us! We went dog sledding 🙂
We also did some horse riding!
