Before traveling to Iceland for the first time, we were so excited to learn more about its history. Food culture is really important in my family, so we especially love delving into the food history of every place we visit. Iceland was particularly fascinating to learn about due to a combination of its geographical location, its isolation as an island, the different settlements and occupations that have occurred over the years, as well as the available (and sometimes limited) resources.
I’d been traveling with fun-colored hair for a while before I almost ruined my hair in Iceland. I felt like I had the whole process down.
Being near the water is such a happy place for me. The sounds, the smells. But, the sun is a challenge. See, I have an autoimmune disease called systemic lupus erythematosus, or just lupus for short.
Whenever I travel to a new place, one of the first things I research is local cuisine and food history. I’m a foodie, so I love exploring the food culture of a future destination. When visiting Iceland, I was worried that I’d find myself struggling for things to eat. Man, was I wrong. Here are my top 10 things to try when you visit Iceland.
The first picture you see is probably the one most people have seen from my 2019/2020 trip to Iceland. Stunning landscape, my bright green hair, and witchy attire. But that photo doesn’t represent my best memories of that trip. It doesn’t give you the real picture of what that trip was like.
I love seeing places through the perspective of my daughter. Read what she says about the top 10 things she loved to do in Iceland!
