Few know that the @BlueLagoonIS was born from a geothermal industrial "accident" causing blue silica runoff.
Dipping an Ástarpungar ("love ball") into some afternoon coffee at the very best bakery in all Iceland. (OK, the one in Siglufjörður is a very close second.) #Iceland #pastry #coffee #yum

"Not all who wander are lost." Really loving the wild & empty fjords in NW Iceland. You can walk all day & never see another soul. Magnificent place. #Iceland #travel
Very lucky to see so many male eider ducks (left). Their down is collected for duvets & sells for around $400 per kg
Obligatory Blue Lagoon selfie. Blissed out beyond measure. #Iceland #blue #water @ Blue Lagoon… instagram.com/p/BFr6jLvCDPm/
Sticking to tradition & finishing my trip at Iceland's very best tourist trap.
"New Fresh Strawberries" for sale in the roadside in western Iceland. This is farm country & full of new life this spring. I love this time of the year because the weather is great, but still not too many tourists.
Hraunfossar ("lava falls") near Húsafell, where thousands of waterfalls pour from the lava rock… instagram.com/p/BFqkWP3iDPz/
Cured salmon & salmon tartar w/ lemongrass mayo & olive oil "snow", lumpfish roe, dill oil & ginger jelly. Delicate, flavorful & so Icelandic! Love this dish. #Iceland #food
Baby calf No. 0843, about 6 weeks old, enjoying her very first spring at Erpsstaðir dairy farm in western Iceland. Icelandic cattle represent thousand-year old purebred stock directly descended from the animals brought over by Viking settlers in the 9th century. Their milk, cream, cheese & butter has a rich & lustrous flavor that comes from eating organic hay. Only about 30,000 cattle live in Iceland, and around 200 on this farm, which makes its own cheese & ice cream. Definitely worth a stop! #Iceland #icecream #cows #dairy #food

Inside the old church at Reykholt, painted light pink with a place blue ceiling & gold stars. Copy of Carl Bloch's painting of Matthew 11:28, "Come Unto Me all ye who are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." #Iceland #christian #history #church
Morning stroll @ Hraunfossar ("lava falls")—a thousand chutes of water pour from the lava rock into the river Hvitá.

Birch smoked trout, mashed fish and jellied sheep's head served on rye. Reykjavik lunch.
The old church at Reykholt, a site that dates back to 11th century Christianity in Iceland. This church was built in 1887 by Ingólfur Guðmundsson, and exhibits the kind of bro-classical style of the prim, bite-size red-roofed churches that dot the green countryside of Iceland. Still considered an important historic, cultural & spiritual place in Iceland today. #Iceland #history #christian
Loved staying at Hótel Húsafell, a 100% carbon-free, clean energy hotel in western Iceland. So comfy & warm.
Best part of traveling to Iceland in spring? All the baby lambs jumping around the fields. They are so tiny but so full of life, exploring their new world but never straying to far from their mamas. #Iceland #sheep
