Why Iceland and Paris?

Originally we were going to go to Paris and London. The cheapest flights turned out to be on Iceland Air--and for no cost, you can book a 5 day layover in Iceland, so we did. We figured we'd never have the chance to do Iceland again, but London was totally feasible in the future, so we went for it! It was so much fun. The theme of the vaca--"Fire and Ice." Paris was so hot and Iceland was so cold. Iceland's country saying is "Fire on Ice" because of the volcanos, so we co-opted their campaign for ourselves!

Because we had to take most of our photos ourselves, we have several self portraits that are more "us" than "sights", but oh well! Here are two of my favorite self portraits. The first in from the top of the Arc de Triomphe (all 281 steps high) and the second is on the streets of Reykjavik.

I love the "Fire and Ice" as your vacation theme...so clever! I am glad you posted pictures of your trip that include your faces. We can always see pictures of far-away places in postcards or books...I like to see you!
