You might know that we had the quietest Hogmanay and New Year ever because for the first time we didn’t have our sons with us, they were celebrating elsewhere. Duncan went to Iceland, a place which I’ve wanted to visit for years and now that I’ve seen his photos I want to go even more.

If you’re interested have a look at them here.

Since I visited Scandinavia when I was 11 years old I’ve been pining for the fjords, but Iceland might be even better, and apparently they get free central heating!

  1. Katrina,
    I, too, have wanted to go to Iceland since the 1990s, when it was so cheap to go for 4-5 days to Reyjkavik (sp?). Oh, why didn’t I do it? I could’ve gone to the Blue Lagoon!

    Now the airfare is so out of sight that it’s unlikely I’ll go. But…England…Edinburgh maybe someday.

    I do hope you will go! You and Jack will love it, I’m sure!


    • Judith,
      I wonder why it was so cheap back in the 90s. Everything in Iceland is expensive but Duncan is going again, next time in the summer as they only have 4 hours of daylight at this time of the year, but 22 hours in the summer!

  2. Great photos. What dramatic landscapes they have there. But I was getting chilly looking at all that ice! Then I checked today’s weather for Reykjavik. Is it possible that it’s currently 41 F there while it’s only 16 F in Philadelphia?! I think I’m off to balmy Iceland!

    Thank Duncan for the armchair travel.

    • Joan,
      Unfortunately he didn’t manage to visit the thermal geysers and pools, they would have warmed you up! I’ve been seeing the frigid US weather on the TV here, I hope you can stay indoors.

  3. The photos are absolutely stunning! Made me very cold looking at them. I will never make it to Iceland though, I’m sure. Unless…we go for a few days when I’m at your house? Firmly planted bug in your ear:)

  4. Beautiful photos – it looks like a made up fantasy world. I am currently reading a book set in Iceland and am very drawn to the place – it would be a dream to go.
    Unlike most of America, we’re not suffering from Icelandic temps here in the West – we were spared from the polar vortex. Not that it would have been that cold here in Phoenix even if it did come through…

    • Anbolyn,
      It does look quite unreal somehow, I’d like to take a cruise to Scandinavia and Iceland, maybe some day.
      I thought that all of the US had been affected by the vortex, it would have been an experience for you!
