My holiday in Iceland was the first great travel abroad i have ever made.
I was curios to see this strange country!! i like a lot natural landscapes and taking photos in Iceland was great!
When you exit from Keflavik airport immediately you think to be in another planet!!! volcanic stones surround you and it seems to look at the earth a million year ago.
We have been 3 days in Rejkjavik but i think 2 days is enough to see this atypical capital.
The only regret i have is about the nightlife during weekends!!! i have heard the nightlife here is "wild" during the weekends and so i would like to come back to see it !
I appreciated a lot the calm way of life in this town! no traffic, no pollution, you can park your car even close to the main streets; it's a dream for the ones like me who live in a chaotic town like Milano.
We rented a car (very expensive thing...but necessary to see Iceland!) for a week and we started a great trip along road number 1. we made about 2300 km!!!!
I thought Iceland was smaller but i had to change my opinion about it.
Road number 1 is totally open just in summer; in the north there is no asphalt on the road for 200-300 km!
It could be nice to have a trip in internal iceland but you must have a jeep-car to do this!
We have been in Akureyry the second town (15.000 people living there!) which is in the north; all the best things to see in iceland are along road nr.1; sometimes you have to deviate for some kilometres to reach the interesting places. for example to go to "Dettifoss" waterfall (the higher european waterfall) you have to make 30 km on a road without asphalt!!sometimes here you could think to be on Mars or on the moon!!! The landscape seems to be from another planet!!!
"Seydisfjordur" (maybe i make a mistake writing this difficult name) is the saddest town i have ever seen in my life!
This place is surrounded by mountains and you have a foggy w eather even during the day!! Here boats from Norway arrive to iceland!! please don't stop here because some kind of depression could take you!!!
"jokursarlon" ice- lagoon is another fantastic place to visit!!! the glacier ends in a lake and you can make a boat-trip close to great Icebergs!
We have seen "lake Myvatn" another fantastic place; close to a Volcano there is a big lake with strange stones everywhere!!! i hope for you you will not find a windy day here 'cause you could meet a strange kind of Mosquitos who are really troublesome.
a negative thing in iceland are very expensive prices for everything you take!!!! I payed 18 $ at "hardrock cafe' for a Coke and 1 hamburger!!!
Iceland is a very young country!!
I have seen many babies everywhere and many young couples with little sons!!! it's strange for us italians! usually we go married at 28-30 years old and we have sons later!
I did'nt meet many Icelanders and i could'nt understand many things about them.
For sure they are kind people but they like a lot their privacy; maybe if you become a friend for them you will be a friend always in your life!
If someone of them would like to correspond with me to have a contact in Italy i will be happy to answer!!
for sure i would like to come back to Iceland...maybe in wintertime to see how Rekjavik's nightlife works!
how was the earth 3 million years ago????
....maybe like this!!!!!!
I tihnk this is one of the most "relaxing" photos i have ever taken.
When you are a little bit worried..watch it!!!
everything will smile at you!
- Pros:natural landscapes
