Road Trip: Iceland
After researching the best ways to explore all of Iceland my family decided to rent a car and drive around the Ring Road. We landed in Reykavik, the capital, and continued on from there around the coast. The country was filled with inviting people, crazy rock formations, glaciers, and endless sunshine. If you want to get away from the perpetual hustle of everyday life, Iceland is the place to go. Instead of skyscrapers there are snow-capped mountains. Puffins instead of pigeons.
In a place so pristine and untouched, you consider what’s really important. It’s hard to watch the sunset from a cliff surrounded by wildflowers in the middle of nowhere and not be grateful for what you have.
Okay, so maybe you can’t jet off to Iceland tomorrow, but take a minute each day and appreciate something simple. Something a human didn’t create. Maybe it’s how the sun flashes through the trees on your way home from school or not caring that you’re getting wet in the rain. Whatever it is: love it.
