Although I never set foot outside Keflavik airport, Iceland made me cry a bit. Flying low over Iceland on a clear day was a magical experience — I have never seen anything like it: Everything was stunningly beautiful. Green moss, waterfalls and ice. Crystal clear turquoise lakes contrasted with the darkness of the black volcanic soil. Like a breathtaking alien planet. I had my nose glued to the airplane window for the entire time.
Maybe one day we’ll get to do a proper visit. I’ll wear my best lopapeysa, I promise.
