I frequent Iceland quite a bit, but this trip was pretty special! My agenda was heavy with many logistical tasks and to-do’s but everything can’t be planned. I spent my New Years with family and friends while the Northern Lights came out to play! I couldn’t have planned a more magical night as sometimes in Iceland, you never know what you are going to get. Happy New Year!
The days are short in Iceland during winter, and I happen to be here during the darkest time. Daylight is at about 11AM, and night falls at about 3:30PM. I have seen Harpa from the outside many times, as it’s right in Downtown, but had never been inside. I had the place all to myself as I arrived just a bit before midnight.
Not too far away from Reykjavík is a place called, The Rauðhólar (“red hills”). Today, my goal was to stay close to the city while finding natural sceneries. Goal accomplished!
I just landed in Iceland a few hours ago from Los Angeles, and wanted to take a cruise around Keflavík before it became dark. I had to take advantage of the daylight, plus, I brought along a swimsuit in case I was inspired. Ha!
Other than it being the city where the KEF airport is located, it’s also the home of the Blue Lagoon.
