As my Icelandic adventure (as part of Nes Artist Residency) came to an end, I found myself with 3 days to explore Southern Iceland, and what better way to do that than with a road trip?
I went with some guys I met at Kex (a hostel in downtown Reykjavik), who were lovely enough to offer me a seat in their car, and we set off at about 7 am (after drinking for most of the night before, I was v. proud of my ability to be conscious that early).
We drove from Reykjavik to Jökulsárlón, stopping off at Skógafoss, Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach and Diamond Beach.
The one thing I would say, is that since we visited at the beginning of March, the winter ice was just beginning to thaw. So when ('when', not 'if') I go back, I think I'll visit in November / December, for maximum iciness. In my opinion, when it comes to Iceland, the colder the better.
