A Rainbow To Cap Our Trip! – Iceland

“We travel not to escape life, but for life to not escape us” – Sistle Maher

It’s wild to think about all that we’ve done in such a short amount of time. 16 days have never gone by so fast, and they were filled with so much laughter and so many memories!

As we sit on our flight from Reykjavik to New York, we’re reflecting on the amazing experiences we’ve had and the great friendships we’ve made. Our last few days in Reykjavik provided us with the perfect landscape for the cherry on top of what has truly been a remarkable summer.

As we drove towards the airport this morning, we were guided by a true sign of perfection: a rainbow lighting the highway, almost as if Iceland was thanking us for coming and showing its beauty one more time before we left.

I strongly believe that while we said goodbye today, our once-in-a-lifetime experience will find a way to bring us together again someday.

We’re not just friends, we’re a family now…and for that we can thank Iceland.

Thanks for reading!
