Yes, Iceland is just as stunning as everyone hypes it up to be. Driving through its winding roads, it's hard not to be distracted by its peculiar landscape and and towering mountains.
We just wrapped up Day One here — driving through the Golden Circle and making stops at a geothermal river in the Town of Hveragerdi (6-kilometre uphill hike through deafening winds), Geysir (kinda underwhelming) and Gulfoss (AMAZING).
*Travel Tip: Buy your case of water at a real grocery store. We were in a jam this morning and purchased a case of water for $25 CDN at a gas station. I swear I had a heart attack when I saw the cashier ring it up.
