REASONS WHY ICELAND IS THE BEST

list requested by @sophia and i cant wait to tell you why. i added some of my photos to reinforce THE AMAZINGNESS.
  1. ITS KINDA CLOSE TO EVERYWHERE?!
    it's 5 hours from new york and 7 hours from seattle. why? cuz it's at the top of the fucking WORLD and that curve makes all the diff
  2. IT LOOKS LIKE A DREAM CARTOON
    my husband described it as a child's drawing come to life. there are a ton of rainbows, waterfalls, horses, sheep and houses for fairies
  3. NATURAL WONDERS ARE FREE AND AT YOUR OWN RISK
    aside from the Blue Lagoon, which is annexed by a spa, pretty much none lf the NATURAL AMAZING WONDERMENT is monetized or even guarded. wanna walk right into that waterfall and maybe die? OK IF YOU WANT! climb these 300 stairs with a rope as a bannister to a tiny rickety platform, no charge and no one to watch if you fall. i went to a mindblowing lagoon filled w prehistoric ice and i walked into it
  4. THEY BELIEVE IN FAIRIES
    and build little houses and stuff for them
  5. HORSES AND SHEEP EVERYWHERE
    someone owns some of them i guess but you can pull over yr car anytime and pet them or take a pic or just say hi
  6. THERE'S ONLY ONE MAIN HIGHWAY
    and it goes in a circle around the whole country. v v covenient and charming as hell
  7. GLACIER FUCKING LAGOONS
  8. AMAZING WATERFALLS EVERYWHERE
  9. FREE WIFI ALMOST EVERYWHERE
  10. EVERYONE SPEAKS ENGLISH
    even when i attempted to use some very minimal icelandic in the deepest of nowhere the people are like...how can i help you? in perfect english
  11. WHEN YOU ARE WALKING AROUND OUTSIDE YOU FEEL HIGH ON THE FRESH AIR
  12. ICELANDAIR WILL LET YOU DO A 3 DAY LAYOVER IN REYKJAVIK FOR FREE
    e.g. if you are going nyc-london? ask them do an extended layover in Reykjavik at no extra cost
  13. SO VISUALLY REWARDING I FELT OVERWHELMED
    the city the gradfiti the people the shops the mountains the water the sheep the everything. it all looks GORGEOUS. GAHHH
