When I first arrived at Jökulsárlón, I declared it my favorite place in all of Iceland. I had seen pictures from Alex's previous trip and knew immediately I would fall in love, though it was even more incredible in person. I loved it enough to spend an entire day there; it just kept getting prettier as the sun was setting. The pure colors of the peaceful ice created a really captivating visual I had never seen before. To top it off, there were a bunch of playful seals floating around, almost as content as I was!

I was excited I got to walk in the water, thanks to my trusted wellington boots! The lagoon is deep but I was able to get closer than any other tourist (and think I made some jealous). A few of the smaller ice blocks had broken off icebergs and were just within my reach. I could've stayed there forever and didn't want to leave, but it was getting dark and time to head back to our next stop: Smyrlabjorg County Hotel to have dinner and sleep.
