Stop two on my year off travels was Stockholm, Sweden! I was here for three nights and had a lovely (and pricy) time.
Our last two days in Iceland were spent in and around Reykjavik. First was Gulfoss Falls, Hallgrímskirkja, and Rainbow Road (which was painted for the Pride parade). On our final day in Iceland we dropped off Merjen at Blue Lagoon and explored around Grindavik.
Day three in Iceland took us east from Vik out to Diamond Beach at Breiðamerkurjökull Glacier and Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. The Sun made a showing while we were out there but quickly retreated as we drove back west to Selfoss, stopping at Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon.
The first stop on my year off travels was Iceland! These pictures are from the first two days.
On day one we drove from Reykjavík to Thingvellir National Park, then to Geysir and finally Hella for the night. Day two was particularly busy with stops at Seljalandsfoss, Seljavallalaug Swimming Pool, Skógafoss, Sólheimajökull Glacier, Kirkjufjara beach, and Reynisfjara Beach aka Black Sand Beach.
I went to Japan with some friends in late July 2017. We were there for 12 days and visited Tokyo, Mt. Fuji, Kyoto, and Osaka.
I made videos about this trip, which are up on my YouTube channel.
