    Photo Friday: Icelandic Icebergs

    By Alexis Believe it or not, it’s actually getting pretty chilly in Thailand these days! I’ve been wearing a jacket on my walk to work every morning and we haven’t turned on our air conditioner in weeks.

If you’re planning a trip to Iceland, I highly highly recommend getting a car or RV and touring around. No better way to see the country, in my opinion. After just a few days, we fell in love with it all. We saw incredible things — from sprawling ice sheets like the one pictured…
