Greenland

Just a note to let everyone know that we made it back from Greenland. We were kind of stunned on our first day there - we took a car, plane, helicopter, and a boat. This picture is from the helicopter.

Greenland is beyond beautiful and I don't think I will be able to adequately describe it - but of course I will try. And, as always, the pictures don't hurt. I have tons that I want to put up, but obviously not so much time... so I will leave you with these. Above is our view from our hotel room - yes, there was an iceberg in our 'front yard'. It moved a bit with the tides, but it was always close.

I woke up to the sun - and today caught the sunrise, which was spectacular. Our first night there I woke up through the night in hopes of catching the aurora borealis, but I guess we'll just have to come back.

I have plenty to write about in September when we return. Until then, we'll be traveling around Iceland and trying our hardest to soak all of this in just a little bit more.

Tonight we arrived at the Blue Lagoon clinic just in time for a nice dip in the private silica lagoon. I can honestly my skin has never felt better... and I probably won't ever want to leave.

Em you are SUCH a talented photographer. You should look into selling copies of your work on Etsy.com, I think you'd sell a bajillion of them. :)

I can't wait to see more!

Wow! Thanks so much for all of your nice comments everyone.

I wish I could have shared this with all of you rather than just through the photos. It was undoubtedly one of the most amazing places I've ever been.

Let me know if you want extra details to plan a trip yourself!

Maybe you'll consider a nordic retreat for your honeymoon! Iceland and Greenland are spectacular.
