12 In travel/ world

postcards from iceland

we are here

this hotel chosen for (i) it’s proximity to the blue lagoon (the name of which always makes me think of this movie) and (ii) the fact that it’s out of the city of reykjavik and we are more likely to see the northern lights.

fingers crossed we see them tonight.
