    My big trip this year - Iceland! Rented a car for a 19 day trip around the country. Every picture is beautiful even with an old taped up point and shoot (photographer friends are cringing).

    The first is a pic of a baby on big fish by fijord postcard. The National museum had an exhibit of 10,000 postcards and sold copies of some like this novel early 20th century scene.

    2nd is a lovely sea-side church in northern Iceland. It rained hard that day so the sky is blown out and the cross doesn't show. These little churches (always near a farm commune) had simple cemetaries nearby. The turfy grass is as soft as it looks.

    3rd is a monument on a beach - the words translated to "always lost at sea".

    I took so many pictures on the trip, but I'll post them as related to a vintage postcard or fossil, rock, so that they make sense in the CW world.

    Thanks Olebodie for asking to see them.

      Beautiful pics:) 19 days of exploring sounds like a lot of fun!!
    3. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      Wonderful pics!! What a wonderful trip this must have been.

      Thomas - Iceland is so beautiful and it is very expensive. Only the water was free. Kidding aside, the seafood was so delicious (expensive) and the coffee was not that great but was expensive. Hard to find the morning joe for less than $3.00.

      Thanks Trey - it was really a great trip driving around the country. We saw hundreds of waterfalls and at least that many sheep.

      Thanks jscotto - it was! We drove on fumes a few times, but with 24 hours of daylight - just kept going....which is not the way to do this by the way if anyone is planning a trip to Iceland. :-)

      Lucky you, hope you had the best time sweetie !~

      Thanks Phil - it was a very memorable holiday. Not an easy trip with my sweetie. Driving on gravel roads in rain and in fog high around the fijords....some cussing and fighting I have to admit. Otherwise - pretty great. :-)

      Thanks fleafinder - it's very easy to travel through, just bring a lot of $$$.

      Your photos pang my heart they are so-like a religious experience seing them--especially the sign"lost at sea" Can you imagine how many were??... PLEASE DO post the pictures. So lovely they shiver me up!

      PCC - it was a religious experience looking at these beautiful, solitary churches with graves outside. I love churches with their art - maybe visited 100 in Poland last year? but Iceland's churches were about personal reflection and worship, set in the most gorgeous landscapes. I'll post some for you this weekend. Thanks for enjoying! And yes the "lost at sea" was heartbreaking. Also a few monuments to Vikings who "abandoned they ships during battle, to swim to a safe place". They didn't commit suicide, they actually swam away in this cold a*s water!!! Tough people these Icelanders.

      Thanks Thomas!! Yes, I agree - serenity here!

      Looks like it was a wonderful trip Mary, such a serene landscape
    13. valentino97 valentino97, 2 years ago
      Jenni - thanks yes it was very serene. So easy to travel, just rent a car. I think I commented before it's good to book lodging before and take time driving around Iceland slowly during the 24-hour sunlight season. We didn't realize how tired we were since it was sunny....just kept going and then LOL pretty cranky. But I don't think most tourists do the whole island road trip.
    14. Newfld Newfld, 2 years ago
      That midnight sun must have been crazy and very exhausting! But I give you so much credit Mary, you're a true adventurous traveler which is the only way to truly enjoy a trip :)
