Iceland Day 4: Driving the Golden Circle

By | Iceland, OUR TRAVELS | No Comments

Let’s see. Today, I walked the fault line between two tectonic plates, saw some geysers, checked out a waterfall, and saw a volcanic crater. Oh and I got a sweet new hat! -Matt

Iceland Days 1+2: Waterfalls, Volcanoes & Icelandic Horses

By | Europe, Iceland, OUR TRAVELS | No Comments

Ahhh, Iceland. I wasn’t able to make our most recent trip, but the newest Map&Move crew did. Amie, Nate, Cam, Matt and Joe flew in on Thanksgiving. After a proper home-cooked Icelandic holiday feast,  they took off driving through the land of fire and ice.

The black sand beaches of Vik took my breath away. Viewed from off route, from Dyrhólaeyjarviti. PC: Cam Thompkins
