photography and journal by Katey Hamill

After spending 3 weeks on an Icelandic farm, my friend and I felt we had the experience and language skills needed to conquer Iceland on our own. With skyr (Iceland's version of yogurt) in our stomachs and confidence that we could introduce ourselves (ég heiti...), offer a good night (góda nótt), label anything as cool (flott), cheer on the Icelandic football team (áfram Island!), and name just about any animal we came across (heina, hani, hundur, kesha), we set off to explore solo. Raining days proved to be a bit of a challenge as we traveled along the green coastland, but with a list of things to do we embraced the Icelandic saying, "There's no such thing as bad weather, just lousy clothing."
