Must-see Places in Iceland

Just writing these posts make me long for Iceland.

For the longest time I've been wondering what exactly it is about Iceland that makes my heart so happy, that makes my soul yearn to be back there.

Is it the landscapes? Is there something in that pure water? Is it something in the air? Maybe it's all that natural, untouched, unspoilt beauty. Or maybe (probably) the silence and isolation, and the power of mother nature.

I read an article from Caz of yTravelBlog about Soul Homes and Travel Callings and I realised that Iceland is definitely a soul home for me. A place where you feel "I'm home". And not to mention that Iceland is said to be one of the spiritual energy chakras of the world.

Anyway, enough reminiscing.

Places you have to see in Iceland - yes, based on our short 10 day trip:

It's hard to tell you what to see and we missed so many things, but if you can, see everything!; there are so many beautiful places to see.

The Golden Circle makes a loop from Reykjavik along the ring road to many of the major attractions and can be done in a couple of days (4 they say). This includes the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, Black Sand Beaches in Vik and Reynisdrangar, Waterfalls, Geysers, and Volcanoes.

Take a Zodiac tour on the Glacier Lagoon. You have to dress up in a big thermal onesie and harness, then with a Zodiac, you cruise through the lagoon to the big glacier.

It is truly amazing, and make for great photos.
