Honeymoonin' Iceland: The countryside

Jan 30, 2013

While in Iceland, we did our fair share of driving.
We didn't get to drive as far as we initially planned, due to the icy conditions and our miniature car, but we saw some of the best views the southern coast had to offer.
I was especially thrilled because I got to get up close and personal with some wild Icelandic horses.
The whitecaps in the distance was actually a large glacier.
We found an old dormant volcano, also!
At one point, we accidentally drove north instead of south, and got caught in some crazy coastal winds that had to be nearly 100 mph.
I could barely stand outside of the car.
I have yet to experience a more scenic country!
