Iceland 2019 🇮🇸  7


My brother and I spent last week in Iceland!

One week was way too short... When I was a child I would spend the entire summer vacation there, and I really miss it. Being so closely bound to two countries means that I always carry a longing within me. 💙

Endless fields of blue...




We stayed in our cabin by our family farm on the west coast.

View from the livingroom and my bedroom window late at night:




There are four bottle lambs at the farm this year, and they are actually not fed by bottle anymore but by an artificial lamb feeder that allows them to get warm milk whenever they like. This means that they are not associating us with milk, and only come over asking for cuddles. So sweet! ^^




The Icelandic sheep breed was brought by the first settlers and are kept isolated, much like the Icelandic horse. They are characterized by their hardiness, large variety of colors, beautiful curled horns, and the wool is especially warm and light.

Did you know there are more sheep than people in Iceland? XD

During our time there we went to our cousin's wedding, so even though our stay was short I got to meet most of my big Icelandic family! The unpredictable weather was luckily on its good behavior for the occasion and it was such a beautiful day.




I hope to be back soon! ♥
