Iceland Travel Blog with National Geographic
I am so excited to bring a new journey across the world to you! Stay tuned. The adventure begins shortly!
Just a few days away... Iceland
I am getting ready for a new experience - traveling to Iceland! Mr. S. is so excited and glad to be able to bring this experience to you. I will most certainly be looking for all sorts of trolls and fairies. A couple of my students asked that I try to bring one back home.. If they come, they will have to be willing and nice! I have read a little about the magical creatures and now know that they come in a big range of different personalities!
A few things that I am expecting to see - geothermal lands and systems. Iceland is known for their very unique ways of harnessing the energy of the earth. They actually use the volcanic energy to bring heat to their homes and buildings! Also, I hope to see some adorable puffins! I am very excited to see geysers for the first time as well as travel to the famous Blue Lagoon!
Here is a map of our expected travels. I leave on Monday! Stay tuned! If you have questions you would like me to research or ask the National Geographic Staff, ask away!

I'm so excited for you and your mom to experience Iceland together. This is so special! I've never heard of whale being served in these parts. I'd love to try it sometime. I'm looking forward to reading more about your adventure with Nlake!

Iceland is BEAUTIFUL! I can't wait to show more photos tonight! The whale was pretty interesting and something I would recommend (even thought I know it is not a popular thing with animal lovers). More to come! oxoxo Mr. S.
