Iceland: A treat for the eyes.

Iceland: A treat for the eyes.

Okay. So, we’ve officially been back from Iceland for almost a week and we haven’t posted anything. In our defense, we have hundreds of pictures to sort though and we had such an incredible time that we don’t even know where to begin. We will say that Iceland is one of the most magical places that we’ve ever been and we’ve already vowed to go back in the future.

This past week has been spent uploading photos and footage while recovering from minor jet lag. Not wanting to leave you with nothing, we’ve decided to post a little sample of the beauty that we encountered while in Iceland. All of these pics are from our Instagram feed so our apologies if you’ve already seen them. If you haven’t, you might want to grab your sunglasses because some of these pictures are so damn HOT they might burn your retinas.

Behold, we bring you Iceland.

So, yeah. It’s safe to say that Iceland is so pretty it hurts. We hope you enjoyed our pictures and we can’t wait to share more of our adventure with you. Be sure to check back here again soon as we have stories about trolls, haunted Viking caves, and Lola’s quest to become an elf whisperer.

Have you been to Iceland? Is it a place you would want to see for yourself? Let us know in the comment section below.

We decided to travel to Iceland because it’s been on our bucket list for years and we found ridiculously cheap airfare. While we would have done the trip on our own we were fortunate to partner with Tiny Iceland, Icelandic Farm Holidays, Trawire Mifi, and Sixt Rental Car. As always, all opinions are our own. Le duh.
