Southwest, south, and south east coastal areas of Iceland

This album is dedicated to showing our experiences from our trip to Iceland in June of 2007.

Things we noticed...

Despite lots of hype we read about, Icelandic coffee is terrible. The seafood is great. The people are great, too. A lot of the other "staples" aren't so good. We found the cheapest places to buy food was at these tiny little grocery stores, strangely located in little malls and such. Icelanders also enjoy strange flavors (like paprika + everything else), which isn't too tasty. We were only able to use credit cards and Kronur cash, despite reading that most places would accept Euros and US Dollars.

Thank you. I'll add some more good pics soon. I highly recommend going, but it can be pricey! Probably worth it, though, especially once you get out of Reyjkavik.

Iceland seems to hold so many surprises. I suppose it
is so much different from Arizona and Colorado!

Actually, it was so varied even on the island itself it blew our minds. It doesn't really compare to anywhere I've been in the US. Really unique and it feels really raw, if you will. The whole country/nation only has 330,000 people. That's the size of a small US city!!
