Iceland

I recently took a trip to Iceland with hopes of seeing the aurora borealis, and for some needed rejuvenation before beginning the many preparations for our annual Spring Open House here at Morning Sun.

A record breaking snowfall hit the day after we landed in Reykjavik.  The locals hadn't seen this much snow since 1937.

Everything about Iceland was enchanting.  The landscape, the abundance of natural hot springs, and the awe-inspiring northern lights that I was lucky enough to have seen.

What surprised me about Iceland was the delicious food and the gracious hospitality of the people.  I was so impressed by their love and care for their land; this beautiful, rugged, yet fragile environment. 

I left filled with a sense of peace (and longing to plan my next trip back already).
