Had a wonderful trip to Iceland this past month – even in November the place is incredible!  I can’t wait to go back in summer – even if it’s just to help herd the Iceland sheep with the help of an Icelandic horse!  The variety of landscapes and the rich culture along with the pristine  environment make it a hikers paradise.
