Before I tell you anything more about our Iceland trip, let me tell you that my wife is not that demanding and she never asks for any gifts be it her birthday or be it our anniversary. This year when I asked her what do you want on your birthday? she jokingly said, "how about a diamond RING"?
I said why not, off course you can go ahead and buy it for yourself on my behalf! and we both started laughing.
But that was the time when I started thinking about a road trip through Ring Road in Iceland. I told her about the idea of going on a road trip in Iceland during winters so that we can tick off one of the things that we had on our bucket list i.e. Watch the northern lights dance in all its glory. She didn't hesitate even for a second and said YES.
That was it and we started researching about things we can do, things that we need to carry, how to apply for a visa, the period when we can book the cheapest tickets, etc.
We will share our itinerary with cost in a separate blog but for now, let us show you some of the best places we explored during our trip through ring road in Iceland.
1) Reykjavik - First up is the capital of Iceland. We never like to travel to cities BUT Reykjavik was different. The reason why we fell in love with Reykjavik was - right in the middle of the city we found our favorite thing - MOUNTAINS. The first sight of the range made our jaws dropped. We wanted to capture the best possible picture we can and I think we were successful in doing it. Here is a picture of Mount Esja!
