    For a someone who normally prefers the city, coming to Iceland is a rare occurrence, if not an exception. I didn’t know what I was missing.

    Many times, I felt as if I’m in a different world. I know I’ve barely scratched the surface with my few days’ tour.

    I came to Iceland hoping to see the northern lights.

    What I found was incredible beauty. Many stunning views, breathtaking moments…I ran out of superlatives to describe its amazing landscape.

    And I met some wonderful people along the way (ten to be exact, including our awesome tour guide – Helgi).

    I couldn’t have asked for more.
