Blogging 101 : Why Iceland
I have been asked often “Why Iceland?” and so for this assignment to write for an audience, I have put together my first ever list as to why we went to Iceland and fell in love with it.
Because its capital Reykjavik looks like colourful candy in a lolly shop.
And it’s most popular restaurant is a hot dog stand in downtown Reykjavik.
Because their horses look like this.
And it has the world’s biggest hot tub.
Because you can stand on a bridge that spans two continents
And where in the world will you find a church that looks like a space ship!
Because you can’t help but stop and stare at its mind bending scenery
A place where waterfalls can capture rainbows
Where majestic geysers gush like clockwork
And where mountains can swallow a house
Where giant moss beds fill an entire field
Where the land can colour and steam with heat
Whilst ice blue glaciers snake towards the freeway
Its a place where the beaches are blackened by volcanic ash
And icebergs float free in inland lagoons
Where diamonds can be found on beaches
And the landscape just look out of this world
Where at the end of the day, you can sit and rest
And watch the night skies put on a magical show
And if you’re still not convinced, just watch the video by Apple Wagon Films of Iceland.
Then get online and book your tickets!
(Note : Also as part of the assignment to include a new element, I have embedded my first ever video!)

Beautiful! Enticing! I love the way you strung it all together. My daughter travels between the US and Denmark, always trying to hit Iceland on the way to Copenhagen. She claims it’s a magical place, and you’ve put that magic in a blog.
Thank you for your nice comment. She’s 100% correct! We only discovered Iceland reading other travel blogs and then we couldn’t stop thinking about it. Hope she makes it there!
Take me with you! Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeee 😀 This place looks amazing. I’ve only just decided that I NEED to go to Norway after discovering it on a traveller’s blog, but now you have convinced me to add this to the list! What is happening to me? A list!? I never cared for travelling and now I’m making lists… This is what WordPress does to you! 😀
(The fact that the video sounds like it has Jonsi’s music over it, makes it even better <3 )
😀 Thanks for your nice comments! I know exactly what you mean coz that’s how we discovered Iceland as well. I’m glad you are inspired. Travelling can do that to you and there’s little I enjoy more than planning for my next adventure!
What a beautiful and mysterious place! I had NO idea Iceland was so incredible. Thank you so much for sharing this. Loved the pictures and the video. 🙂 ……. Stay warm now.
More than happy to share it! Going to Iceland only came about from reading other blogs so hope it inspires you as well. Thank you too for your kind words!!
Wonderful photos, I definitely want to get there some time. We are in the opposite corner of Europe (Georgia).
Glad you liked the photos!
