Six days, one rental car, 5 loud family members and a whole island to explore.
Day 1: We landed in Reykjavik about 4am and waited “patiently” for our rental car so our journey could begin. It was 5:47 local time and 5 hangry Americans waited for our breakfast. We ate at the local Viking museum on the water. You can enjoy a typical Icelandic breakfast under a Viking boat!
Up next: a day exploring and mindless wandering downtown Reykjavik. Please go to Cafe Balou and order the vegan carrot cake with a coffee. The atmosphere will remind you of your crazy aunt’s house, but since it’s a coffee shop it’s cute.
Day 1 Continue: The Golden Circle. Beware of the sheep that wander aimlessly into the road. God’s beauty is incredible. Also, don’t drink anything Birch.
Day 2: To start the day off, hotdogs of course followed by Boli beer and puffin. To end the day, pub crawling downtown Reykjavik. We literally we went coo coo for Coco Puffs. The Labowski bar serves up over 15 types of White Russians. Get the Cocaucasian.
Day 6: The end of a spectacular family vacation. We ended with a northern lights show only God the Creator can create (so many greens, pinks and purples dancing in the night sky) , fish n chips at Icelandic and shopping.
Mom and dad, you literally give us the world. Thank you for experiences we can never recreate. Y’all work so hard throughout the year to give to us so selflessly. Love you the the moon and back!!
