A MAGICAL PARADISE CALLED ICELAND

Iceland - Jokulsarlon Introduction

I don't even remember why I wanted to go to Iceland in the first place (I wanted to go even before I picked up photography). To be honest, I think this destination popped in my head simply because I wanted to go somewhere where few people have been, and I wanted to be different. Fast forward 10 years, I finally went ahead and googled this random rock in the middle of the Atlantic. For the longest time the only thing I've heard about Iceland was that it was expensive (and indeed it was), but once I saw pictures of this place I knew I was going to go there for sure.

I had intended to visit Iceland on my own since my wife wasn't all that interested (plus she couldn't take time off from work). Being in my mid-twenties I didn't need anyone to go anywhere with me, I don't know how but I ended up treating my mom to this trip (in a way to thank her, and something different for her as well)... I am glad I did.

Like any amateur photographer/poor traveler with plenty of time on their hands, I spent tons of time doing 3 things: 1) I went on Flickr to see if there are any cool ideas, 2) Tripadvisor to ask for advice regarding my trip plans, and 3) try to save some money with car rental/accommodations.
