Brilliant purple flowers as far as the eye can see

Iceland’s summer is uniquely beautiful.  I’ve seen wildflowers before, but nothing quite like this. With conditions perfect for the growth and spread of the lupine flower, they’re a more common site than those furry little horses in Iceland. They’re easy to access, too, growing right along the roadside, so we couldn’t resist pulling over for a more immersive experience. Iceland was the final of twelve European countries we visited on our Europe trip, and despite the chill (that wool kept me warm), in beauty it was one of our absolute favorites. The steamy geothermal activity, the waterfalls, the massive volcanoes, the puffins (!!!)… we drove around in awe of the landscape at every turn. That eternal sun is a kicker. On a cloudy day when you can’t place the sun in the sky, it’s midnight before you know it, and you’re still three hours away from your hotel. (We spent a lot of time in the car in Iceland, so I dressed cozy.) Now I understand why many choose to rent campervans and RVs to explore this country. Perhaps we’ll try that next time. I know we’ll return soon. Below you’ll find my perfect outfit for a cozy summer day of exploring in the northerly part of the northern hemisphere.
