ÍS: Reykjanes Peninsula

 

reykjanes29 I told you I still had Iceland pictures up my sleeve! I moved back home from Iceland in early June 2015, but I went back for two weeks in August to attend an intensive masterclass on manuscripts. I brought my youngest brother along with me (thus finally getting to explore Iceland with every member of my immediate family individually). I spent most of the time in the reading room of the manuscript institute, but did get out to see a bit of the countryside. These pictures are all from a great day trip the class took through the Reykjanes peninsula in southwest Iceland (the area where Keflavík Aiport is).

The Reykjanes pensinsual is full of lava fields, tiny towns, sulfurous steam vents, bubbling geothermal spots, and an epic coastline. It was actually one of the few parts of Iceland I had not explored before moving, so it was great to see something new. At this point, it’s been over a year since I moved home, and I will admit I am sorely missing Iceland and Europe in general.
