The final entry about our wonderful 2-week trip to Iceland is about Reykjavík. This is where we started and ended our ring road adventure. People said the city wasn't that interesting and it's better to be elsewhere in Iceland. The city is fine and we liked our time in it. There's stuff to do even if it isn't as grand or interesting as many other European cities. However, don't make a trip to Iceland to visit the capital and miss out on the real reason to be there.

Iceland has great coastal views to soak in. It's great to just be on the Snæfellsnes peninsula and look around. It'd be a good day trip if you're short on time and already checked out the Golden Circle region. For us, it was icing on the cake to finish our two week drive around the Ring Road. That's the best way to experience Iceland.

I'll cram several more days of Iceland road trippin' into a single post. There's simply too many pictures over two weeks to show off for this truly remarkable country.

Another favorite day was spent seeing the big Vatnajökull glacier at Skaftafell, the icebergs in Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon floating out to sea, and the ice that washes up on Diamond Beach. It was a whole circle of life view of ice.
Well, except for the ice that end up in drinks. Those take a different path back to the sea in an entirely different circle of life.

I haven't seen so many different waterfalls in a two week period. We wondered how many variations of the waterfall theme could possibly exist. Some were near the road and some required a hike. Every single one of them were different and worth it.
