While I was researching and planning our Icelandic trip, I tried to find things that we wouldn't normally do. This trip also happened to coincide with Markus's birthday and I wanted to do something really special, like a glacier walk! If you know us, we tend to stay away from extreme activities when we travel. Not that we don't like them, we do! We got scuba certified in Cambodia in 2013, but other than that, we haven't done anything extreme. Everything changed with this trip, it was filled with outdoor activities and it was fantastic.
The second day of our Icelandic road trip was his actual birthday. We spent the day driving along the southern coast. One of the stops along the way was Sólheimajökull Glacier, where we did our glacier walk. Markus loved it and I was happy that we had the opportunity. Never in my life did I think that I would be in Iceland walking on a glacier. I thought it was going to be scary and that I would be the idiot that slipped and fell down a glacier. Thankfully, that didn't happen. It was actually really easy and a ton of fun. Most of all, Sólheimajökull was absolutely stunning and so beautiful! If we ever get the chance to go on a glacier walk, I would do it again in a heartbeat!
