Reykjavik, Iceland has been a wonderful Christmas destination. It’s a magical, sparkling town and Icelanders are a friendly and happy people.
We came to Iceland to see the Northern Lights. Viewing the Aurora Borealis from the 66th North Parallel was on my father’s Bucket List, but due to a series of misadventures my folks couldn’t make it here.
Iceland’s Blue Lagoon is a thermal oasis in the midst of a frozen lava field. It looks like the moon out here – not a living thing growing. No trees, no animals, and not even people can survive in the barren wasteland between Blue Lagoon and Reykjavik.
Icelandic folklore says…
There’s a mean ogress named Gryla who lives in the mountains. She has a big black cat who is equally as mean, and a do-nothing husband who just likes to stay home.
