What a cute post card from the land of fire and ice 😍 Do you send postcards to family when you travel? It’s a tradition on my dad’s side of the family. This one was a little expensive, so we mailed a different one but I couldn’t help but snap a photo. Do you have any travel traditions? #postcardsfromaroundtheworld#postcardpaintings#landoffireandice#traveltraditions

Who likes freebies? 🙋🏼‍♀️⠀ Planning a DIY tour of the Golden Circle can be complicated. Adding in the pressure of seeing it all in less than 6 hours is stressful. Allow me to remove the complication and stress so you can plan less and travel more. A new blog post has just been published and it includes a free Golden Circle itinerary perfect for the winter season. Grab it today by clicking the link in bio. What stresses you out about travel planning? #freeitinerary#icelanditinerary#icelandwithaview#planless#travelmore#thingvellirnationalpark#thingvellir#icelandroadtrip#icelandroadtrippin#icelandinwinter

Tell me, what do you want to know about the Golden Circle? I’m writing my guide to driving the circle and want to make sure it includes everything you need to know. Also, can we take a moment to appreciate this stunner 😍 I assumed the geyser wouldn’t impress me, but nature proved me wrong again. The timing was perfect to capture the bursting geyser as the sun was nearly set and emitting this soft glow

When & where do you see the Northern Lights in Iceland? Should you take a tour or DIY? What should you wear? How do you photograph them with a phone, point and shoot, and DSLR? I answer all this and more in my first blog post of the year. Check it out in the link in bio or go to www.getawaygirl.us. Tell me, where have you seen the Northern Lights?

A Southern Sun ☀️ ☀️ ☀️

A Southern Sun ☀️ ☀️ ☀️ Instead of making New Year Resolutions, I’m making Last Year Reflections. How am I supposed to better myself if I don’t reflect on past attempts? 1. The last few months of the year, I consistently exercised. Good! However, in the last few weeks, I haven’t exercised once. Bad. Next year I will remain consistent and find a way to make exercises shorter and easier while on vacation. 2. I hardly read last year, but when I did I enjoyed it. I miss reading. Next year, I will read for at least 20 minutes daily. 3. Netflix (and YouTube, etc.) started to become a large aspect of my life. It shouldn’t be though. Next year, I’ll limit my weekly TV consumption so that I spend more time with friends and family or growing myself. What are your New Year Resolutions and Last Year Reflections?

I accidentally drove past this iconic spot while looking for it! The road is in the middle of the waterfall and mountain, but you can’t tell from the photos so I thought I had to keep driving. There was a small waterfall to my left, but I thought it couldn’t be the falls in this iconic photo. Finally I returned and realized the iconic falls in this photo are tucked behind a corner. Yup, there are actually two tiers of waterfalls at this spot! Don’t worry, I’m writing a mega post about exploring the Snaefellsnes Peninsula so you don’t make the same mistake as I did! What sites have you almost missed while traveling?

Merry (belated) Christmas everyone! I spent the day with family State-side, but was reminiscing the winter sun in Iceland. As the days approach the winter solstice, there’s about 4 hours of daylight. However, due to the country’s latitude, dawn and dusk last about an hour each, totaling 6 hours of daylight. The sun never fully rises, so the whole day is a “golden hour.” Yes, there’s limited daylight in Iceland in winter. But Iceland is still magical and never fails to impress. Would you travel to Iceland in winter?

Midja, the hidden land bridge, was a must for my mom and me in Iceland. We almost missed it! I walked right past, but something inside me told me to turn around. And there it stood, in all its beauty and mystery. How does nature create such wonders? My mother was terrified of walking across it, but have no fear — the path is wide and sturdy. Sometimes destinations don’t meet expectations, but Midja and the surrounding town met all of mine✨ What’s one place that exceeded your expectations?

Who’s ready for dinner? This little seal is! I was watching the fishermen’s process of unloading the day’s catch when I saw bobbing in the water. I screamed with delight when I realized it was a seal! None of the fish fell off the boat for him to feast on, so the kind fishermen threw him a catch. This is seriously one of my all-time photos featuring all the best of Iceland — winter sun glow, kind locals, wildlife, and breathtaking landscape (did you notice the waterfalls?) Tell me, where was your favorite photo taken??

Do you think the Blue Lagoon is overrated? I’ve heard mixed reviews, but I thought it was incredible. Thankfully it was quite peaceful since there weren’t many people. Maybe because we went at 9am? Or maybe because it’s winter, so less tourists? As much as I would love to return, the price is steep making this a one-time experience. I guess I’ll have to keep exploring all the other amazing pools in Iceland 😍
