Jökulsárlón is a glacial lagoon, bordering Vatnajökull National Park in southeastern Iceland. Its still, blue waters are dotted with icebergs from the surrounding Breiðamerkurjökull Glacier, part of larger Vatnajökull Glacier. The lagoon flows through a short waterway into the Atlantic Ocean, leaving chunks of ice on a black sand beach. In winter, the fish-filled lagoon hosts hundreds of seals.
Being in Iceland makes me want to move to a small country where there's no crazy rushing, always running people around to make it to work or elsewhere...love this country! 🇮🇸💙💙💙

Another surprise I discovered about Iceland: there are churches present in every cluster of communities, even in the sparsely populated highlands, churches are located when only one farm is present. They also share a similar architectural style (except for the unique ones in notably larger towns).
Leaving Goðafoss, we journeyed on to Akureyri, Iceland's main northern city. As we dipped down towards the top of the fjord where Akureyri is located, the sun was dazzling off the water's surface and we caught a glimpse of this church set against this picturesque background. We pulled up to the end of the church's road and picnicked in our van, gazing upon the church and Akureyri in the distance. I was charmed by the simple moment, complete with a woman down the hill on our right playing fetch with her two border collies.
It was beautiful to be connected to God consistently on this trip, not only through the wondrous landscapes of his creation I saw every day, but also by these humble places of worship around every twist and turn of the road.
