Iceland is as magical as they say it is. The Ring Road is easily marked and I brought my own GPS that worked just fine. If you want solitude, this is the trip to take. Even though it was the end of summer, the roads weren’t packed. I often drove for miles and only saw one car pass. It wasn’t completely desolate though, and there are enough towns in between the major towns to feel safe. I definitely recommend Iceland for those who are questioning whether or not to take a solo trip, and it’s an even better safer option for women.
These little sheep were everywhere and even caused me spin out on a gravel road! After trying to speak to a farmer nearby who spoke no english, amazingly a car full of men drove by and helped me get my car out of the small ditch is had spun out into.
In Chile, they would see this and say “plop”. Messi is Argentinean, yet they used him for a “Brazilian salsa” flavor.
I’ve never seen waterfalls like these and most had trails that you could walk around the waterfall and get better views. Seljalandsfoss had a trail that went underneath the waterfall, so that was pretty magical.
If you get the opportunity, please go to Iceland. You will not be disappointed. The people are warm and friendly. The sites are otherworldly. If you are a female wanting to do a solo trip but are too scared to take the leap, try Iceland as your first solo trip! It is safe, the roads are well-marked, and there are usually a handful of tourists on the trails. I recommend going the last week of august because prices are cut in half after the summer, but it was still pretty sunny! There was even a day where it was hot enough to wear a tank top while hiking.
Have you been to Iceland? What was your favorite part? I hope to return next year and go camping with my boyfriend- he has never been! Any suggestions for the west coast?
