On our second day we decided to drive the famous Golden Circle, and somehow lucked out with the prettiest weather! We always seem to have bad luck with weather while traveling (does anyone remember our Grand Canyon trip?) and I think it was even raining at home, so we felt super grateful for the sunshine. Because of that, we wanted to pack as much into this day as possible. The Golden Circle is a loop in the western part of the country comprised of some of the most popular sights. The entire route is ridiculously scenic and we found ourselves stopping off to take pictures every few miles. Gulfoss (the waterfall) was the absolute highlight, although we were surprised by how much we enjoyed Stokkur which erupts every 5-10 minutes. Neither of us had seen a geyser before and the anticipation before each eruption was such a thrill. Every time it made the crowd squeal!
