    Good for you. It is on my bucket list. You want to pay a few college bills? I could get to Iceland if you would pick up a few college bills......another daughter just announce she is starting grad school in January......my pocket book says, "Yeah."

    That is a reason I'm childless, I'm too self-centered.

    I might have to learn to shot before whatever trip is next.

    me too. my wife and I never missed having crumb crunchers around...
    too expensive and would have wrecked our spontaneous life style....

    on another note Jr...
    Iceland is way cool...had to land there once due to mechanical problems....
    only had 8 hours but I want to go back...
    neat shot of the puffins....

    It is a beautiful country that my terrible photography does little justice. We traveled on a small ship (250 passengers) which was able to get into some shallow harbors and bays that the bigger ships could not access. The ship circled the island and stopped at a different port each morning.

    At 9:00 am each day a bus with a local guide would pick us up at the ship and we would spend the entire day exploring the island, returning to the ship at 4:00 for happy hour.

    The puffins nest on the cliffs overlooking the North Atlantic and the locals harvest the eggs and eat the puffin, like we eat chicken.

    Jr...

    I saw a photo trip taken by a photojournalist all over Iceland with a paragraph or two about how the island affected him for each shot...
    he had some amazing images he shot around the island.

    for some of his images he rented a car to circle the island but also did a lot of biking to some of his locations...
    about half were in color, and the rest in B&W....

    absolutely stunning images. this was some time back and I do not remember his name. the 8 hours I was there was enough to make me know I had to put a trip there on my bucket list.

    thanks for your post. it's motivating me to try and make it this summer....
