Counting Down to Iceland. Volcanoes, glaciers and hot springs, oh, my!

As some of you may know, I’m headed on vacation to Iceland in a couple of weeks. I’ve never been, and I’m very excited! As a photographer, this will be a dream.
I am a rather obsessive trip planner. Thus my publication of some travel guides on how to plan your own trip! But this was new territory. Iceland – the land of ice and fire. A country with only 330,000 people. Volcanoes, glaciers and hot springs, oh, my!


Between getting appropriate plug adapters, making sure my iphone will work while I’m there, getting the airfare, B&Bs and rental car set up, I’ve been finding so many stunning places and photographs. There is never time to see it all. I’ve given this advice before, and I’ll say it again: You must plan your trip as if you’re coming back. Otherwise you’ll go crazy trying to see it all.


For instance, we are doing the Ring Road, but we are forgoing a trip to the Snaefellsness Peninsula, and the boat trip up to the island in the Arctic Circle. Just can’t fit it in. We are, however, going on a horseback ride on lava fields, so it all balances out in the end.


Look for my trip reports and photos. I shall try to blog on the trip, but this is new technology for me. I know you can do it via phone, so I’ll try. Thanks!

Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad. Facebook: Homepage: Blog: Twitter:

    So look forward to seeing Iceland through your eyes. Are you going to follow the Celts through all of their Southern expansion territories?

    Love the coos! They don’t exactly shout out warmth and welcome, do they?

  3. They are rather creepy, aren’t they? 🙂 I’m trying to hit all the Celtic places. There were Irish monks on Iceland before the vikings got there, according to the sagas!

    Very excited for you! As a fellow photographer, I’ve been aching to see Iceland. But for some reason, my daughter has to go to college….darn kids…looking forward to seeing it through your lens.
