It’s been well over six months since I visited Iceland, and I realize now that I’ve waited to long to recount my time there. As I was only in the country for a few days, I didn’t really have a chance to become familiar with where I was going or what I was seeing. The trip was a stopover on the way home to Toronto from London, and so I tried to cram as much in as possible. Unfortunately, the weather had other ideas!
Being a solo traveller, tours like these are an invaluable way to get out and see an unfamiliar country. While I would much have preferred to rent a car and travel about with friends on my own, that wasn’t an option on this trip. In addition to this day-long tour, I also took the Golden Circle tour that everyone who passes through Iceland takes. These photos are my favourite from the South Shore Adventure trip that I took with Reykjavik Excursions on my third day.
I don’t think I can do Vietnam in 14 days. To do so, would mean being on the move every second day in order to visit all the places I want to go — and that would mean barely having enough time to actually experience where I’m at. I really need an additional week, at the least, in order to do this comfortably.
I think I should plan to visit a country where I don’t have preconceived notions of what I want that trip to be like (Vietnam has long been my dream destination), so that I’m not feeling frustrated and disappointed.
