Daydream headquarters

Búðakirkja

A little something from last week when I was in Iceland…

I had this church (Búðakirkja) to myself as well as the waterfall (Bjarnarfoss) in the distance after. Amazing place.

The day was unusually warm (for Iceland–probably over 70 degrees F) with no wind. Beginning just after midnight (still light out), the wind began to howl, and never let up much during the next two days as I drove around and slept in the fjords.

Today’s destination

Reynisdrangar

Gullfoss revisited

Gullfoss

Three weeks from today I will arrive in Iceland. I won’t be visiting Gullfoss this time. Instead, I’ll be heading to and around Northwest Iceland, soaking in hot springs and sleeping in the back of my rental van.

Thermal Falls

View from hike to Reykjadalur Hot Spring Thermal River (Iceland)

Today’s photo comes from my hike to the Reykjadalur Hot Spring Geothermal River, certainly the most amazing bath I’ve ever taken.

Anyone familiar with the northwestern fjords of Iceland? Any similar bathing places in that region?

I covered Reykjavik on my first trip, most things between Reykjavik and Blue Diamond Beach and the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon on my second, and will be exploring the area north of Reykjavik on my third (in just over two months).

Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon

Later this month I’ll be booking my tickets for Europe this summer. If my flight goes through Iceland on my way to Copenhagen, again, I will likely spend a couple nights north of Reykjavik. The Blue Lagoon won’t be on my agenda this year. Instead I’ll try to get to places like the fjords in the northwestern part of Iceland. Any suggestions for particular “must sees”?

Another possibility is a couple nights in Frankfurt, Germany on my way in. Any fans of Frankfurt who would encourage that option? I’ve been to Berlin but only the airport in Frankfurt.
