Photo diary: coming home from Iceland

June 9, 2012

I discovered that if I shot Icelandic vistas in black-and-white, they looked more like the Sigur Ros video of my dreams.

On our way to the airport, we stopped for an all-too-brief visit to the Blue Lagoon, Iceland’s most famous spa

One of the things I loved most about Iceland is that most people seem to spend some part of almost every day sitting in hot water — definitely, my tribe.

Icelandair is like Virgin Atlantic or JetBlue, an airline that has cultivated a hip-and-groovy and humorous sensibility in its customer relations. What other airline gives you a poem on your pillow? What non-American airline provides a mini language lesson on your seat back?

This may be the first time I’ve glimpsed Greenland. There is a common saying: Greenland is mostly ice, Iceland is mostly green.

This was a big fun trip, thanks to Andy and IGLA’s decision to hold its 2012 championships in Reykjavik.
