Iceland (2016)

Iceland is the thirty-third country I visited. This tiny country fits the true definition of a “wonderful” country… …everything here from waterfalls to geothermal pools, lava fields to glaciers, and geysers to rivers leaves you with a sense of wonderment. But what made this road trip on the famous Ring Road truly memorable was that this was my first father-son vacation with my 10-year-old. Enjoy our memories and moments as you visit the individual cities below.
