Quaint old Church!
If you're visiting the Thingvellir you will see the church from the lookout above. It's worth the walk to see it. It was not open when we were there, but still nice to see from the outside.

Magical diamond spot

A nice stop just off the Golden Circle
We had read about these falls online from people in Iceland who said this was a location where Games of Thrones had filmed that was beautiful and not crowded. Loving waterfalls we couldn’t resist taking a short detour to see for ourselves. There were seve
