West — The aurora borealis is currently the most beautiful thing I’ve seen in this world and I have a feeling that is unlikely to change any time soon. What really hooked me was the feeling that this green and purple display was alive, that it had a mind of its own. It was like a mist that swirled around me. It twisted and pulsed and weaved its way across the night-sky, leaving me speechless. Thankfully...
Southern peninsula — I made a promise to myself a couple of years ago: 30th birthday, Iceland. And this morning, I had to laugh at myself, in the middle of the frickin’ Blue Lagoon, after spending my entire 30th on an ai...
Southern peninsula — For years, I’ve wanted to relax in the Blue Lagoon in Iceland, drop my body into the warm, blue, mineral-rich waters and gaze into the mist coming off the warm water into the cold air. I imagined that...
Reykjavik — Part of the difference is due to the difference in alphabet — there are characters used in the Icelandic language that slip off the Americanized tongue at first, but quickly become familiar the more y...
Ice for days
Reykjavik By the Numbers
Selfies, steam, silica masks, and smoothies
Love, with a stamp.
Dreaming in and on.
Horses aren't afraid of missing out.
Yes, I'll have my cappuccino with a view, please.
The thing that'll always stay with me is the roads. The empty open roads that wound through the dramatic landscape.
We stand looking out, not speaking, as the rays of the midnight sun hit the snow-bound peninsulas
Inside the Library of Water
I closed my eyes, leant on my companion's shoulder, and silently thanked Iceland's hidden people for creating this gently steaming pool.
Caught in the act.
Welcome to 3 AM in Iceland in the summer, where the nighttime sun of Reykjavik awaits behind these curtains.
#1: Find the highest point in the city.#2: Sketch walking plans.#3: Walk.
Someday I'll stop eating meat completely. Until then: behold, the most glorious burger in Iceland!
Art as a public imperative.
What is it about a mountain?
Newly sanded, cleaned and lacquered wooden floors. The new office space is shaping up nicely.
Noodles in a Fen
Big, fancy meals
The graffiti in Reykjavík is subtly different from elsewhere.
Our peppers have sprouted. No one is sure which are spicy and which are mild. https://sayhi.co/moments/9mdiyiq9
Something's brewing. Prototype Islands are looking good.
When clouds part
A layer of knit clouds hovers over the patrons.
Latte down the drain makes for interesting patterns.
Mint, cantaloupe, syrup makes the medicine go down.
I spend half my days underwater. When the tide falls I can take another deep breadth.
Culture Night in Reykjavik. Street art abounds.
Welcome to the view from our second story submarine.
It's nearly meatball o'clock!
Not the most appetizing breakfast cereal.
Reversing the view. Normally I'm in the building looking out. This time I'm on the outside looking in.
Here time restarts.
36 years ago today, The King left the building for the last time.
Rain, rain go away. Come again another day.
Fresh bread at the office.
17.5 hours to collect supplies, place beads on the peg board, then iron. The results are mesmerizing.
We've been attempting to grow some Shishito Peppers. They are randomly spicy, so you never know what you'll get when you eat one.
Do the Icelandic Horse shuffle.
I'd never seen the northern lights before. I'd heard that they were meant to be amazing, but nothing quite prepared me for what I saw that night.
The statues around Reykjavík are depressing, simple, gorgeous, inspiring.
Some people say Iceland looks 'otherworldly'. I have no idea what they're talking about...
This is a United States Navy Dakota which crashed on the black sands of Iceland in 1973. It's a very surreal sight.
Dance of the heavens. Is this the best sight to fall asleep to? I think it's a front-runner.
