"Fortune on the Journey!" iCaptured at LAUFSKALAVARDA, the mound of Stones, which is a lava ridge, surrounded by stone Cairns located between Hólmsá and Skálmá rivers, close to the road north of Álftaver. Travellers crossing the desert of Mýrdalssandur for the first time were
supposed to pile stones up for good fortune. Cairn of some kind have been used for various purposes, from prehistoric times to the present; stones have served many purposes in our lives.

The Land of Fire and Ice 🔥❄️ Iceland weather is no joke! It’s absolutely gorgeous out here despite it being so incredibly cold.
This is Hallgrímskirkja, Reykjavík’s most famous church. It’s just as impressive at night as it is during the day. It took 41 years to build and stands 244 ft tall.
The silfra fissure is the only place you can snorkel between two tectonic plates, and it is some of the clearest water on the planet. The other thing is that it stays a constant 35-39° F (2-4° C), making it barely above freezing. This was a cold I had never experienced. Even in our drysuits my body went into shock, and I had to constantly remind myself to breathe. The dive itself is absolutely breathtaking, and so is the cold!
