tahiti or iceland?

when hiking near skaftafell (part of vatnajökull national park in southeast iceland) on a dreamy, warm summer morning, you can’t really be sure sometimes! tropical-looking plants, mountains, waterfalls, colorful wild flowers and sun like nobody’s business. what really is the difference?

the waterfall there surrounded by gorgeous, black basalt columns is svartifoss, about 3km from the trail-head at the campsite, where we stayed. there are so many marvelous hiking trails from this area that one could really stay for days and be satisfied here! not to mention the beautiful glacier always looming overhead.

just had to pop in with some biiiig photos to share with you my “is it tropical or arctic?” confusion… it’s messing with my mind in the best way. have you seen what else we got up to during our camping road trip in iceland?
