ICELAND : JÖKULSÁRLÓN GLACIAL LAGOON

Just 60 km east of Skaftafell National Park lies Jökulsárlón, the vibrant aquamarine glacial lagoon dotted with ash-streaked icebergs. While my sister played it cool and skipped the amphibious boat ride into the bay, I couldn't possibly miss the opportunity to eat a piece of thousand year old iceberg. Disappointingly, it simply tasted like very old snow. Spotting seals swimming among the gigantic icebergs and drifting through that icy blue green, however, was not a disappointment. Just south of the bay, smaller icebergs float into the ocean and wash up on shore where you can eyeball every icy and unique formation and detail up close.
