Hello, Iceland!

Iceland via A Beautiful MessHey, friends! We had such an incredible time in Iceland, and today we just wanted to share a few photos from our trip with you. 

Iceland via A Beautiful Mess  Iceland via A Beautiful Mess  Iceland via A Beautiful Mess  Iceland via A Beautiful Mess  The Blue Lagoon did not disappoint. It was absolutely stunning in person and by FAR the warmest thing we did in Iceland (haha!), which I loved. The color is absolutely incredible. I highly recommend it and will do it again next time we visit. 

If you're curious how we were able to get so many photos in the water at the Blue Lagoon, you can check out our underwater camera gear here

Iceland The Kex Hostel. We grabbed lunch here and loved it. One of the best meals we had on our trip, actually, and such a cute spot! 

Iceland  ♥♥♥♥♥

Iceland   We fell in love with the pizza place with no name. SO good. We got the potato pizza and the spicy fries…twice. 

Iceland   This is the church where you can go up to the top to get pics of the colorful roofs.
