The next morning we headed back to Jökulsárlón since we didn't get very much time prior. It was raining and much windier than the day before but it wasn't nothing we weren't prepared for.
In Iceland, you prepare for the worst, and enjoy the most out of it! Personally, I love the extreme weather of this beautiful country. Cold, wind and rain have never dampened my spirits. And the awe of the ice kept our attention more than anything.
After seeing the lagoon, we headed across the way to Diamond Beach, the place where leftover icebergs wash back up to shore.
It was amazing.
Our journey continued onward as we backtracked to Reykjavík, promising ourselves we would stop at all the places we didn't get to stop at the first time.
We happened on a small window of opportunity. With no wind and rain over Svínafellsjökull (the "hollywood glacier", as it is featured in a lot of films), we took a short detour up to the glacier. My husband was able to finally fly his drone!
After Svínafellsjökull we were both feeling really tired and were eager to get back to Reykjavík to rest up and get ready for the next leg of the adventure.
