Iceland Post I: Geysir and Gullfoss

This is the first of several posts about our recent trip to Reykjavik, Iceland.

Geysir is the biggest geyser in Iceland, unfortunately it is currently dormant, but we did see his little brother Strokkur go off nearby.

Fun fact: All geysers in the world are namesakes of Geysir, the oldest known.

The wife got these pics:




And here's the double level Gullfoss (foss = falls) just down the road a bit:



Also note if renting a car here get a 4WD, nearly half the roads on the way to major destinations are unpaved.
