It's weird to think that I have been here for a week. Driving around, taking in the views, hiking, and just taking in the quiet. Iceland is very different from New Zealand and I haven't decided if I like it yet or not. Iceland is beautiful, yes but I'm not sure if this is the place I would necessarily want to come back to on a regular basis. I do know that there are people who come here two or three times a year and I could understand why. There is so much to see and honestly not enough time to see it all. When your driving on the ring road it's not so bad getting around but if you are going to other places that are off the main road then it takes some time. Some places have gravel roads. Other places have potholes for days and both of those slow you down. Not only that but you have animals that just are wandering in and out of the roads on a consistent basis so you have to be paying attention or you could hit a ram, sheep, horse, or even a cat.
I just don't know how I would feel about coming back here. It's weird saying that because most places I go to I have a sense of wanting to return but Iceland hasn't hit that mark yet for me. I think it might be because I have been a little stressed out while I have been here. There have been some days where I am just frustrated and upset but then the next day that turns around and I am loving the adventure. I don't know what it is yet and I havent made up my mind about this beautiful country but I am sure that I will know if I want to make a return trip or not before I board my flight home.
There is so much to do and see I just wish the weather would cooperate and stop being so damn rainy and windy. It really has thrown off a few days for me here and there but I am doing my best and keeping up with my plan.
