The much-anticipated trip to Iceland finally begins! I had a pleasant six-hour flight as Delta gave me a free upgrade. We picked up the rental car after meeting my friend at the airport, and then we were en route to Kirkjubaejarklaustur, a small town in Southern Iceland. Today is such a beautiful day: crisp air, deep blue sky, and floating clouds. We had to stop so frequently to take photos and eventually it took us almost six hours to complete a three and half hour drive. I now understand why a recent-bankrupted Icelandic airline was named as “Wow Air,” because the road trip is indeed full of “Wow” moments!
