  • Iceland! – Photos

    I’ve gone through the ~1,000 photos I took, and selected out about 325 that are worth sharing. I haven’t done any cleanup or post-processing on them, so don’t judge me to harshly. You can see them all here: Iceland! Here are a few highlights:

  • Iceland! – Our Trip Part 3

    O! For dinner on Thursday night we ended up, after a failed attempt at a very popular local seafood restaurant, at a hotel restaurant called O. It was good.

The plane was recently upgraded with seat-back entertainment screens, like Jet Blue, and the flight was only four and a half hours, so […]
