It’s so silly that I still haven’t been to Montreal. It’s really not all that far and going there for a few days shouldn’t be too much of an hassle… and yet. This city just seems like the kinda place I’d love (despite the current cold-cold weather): lots of beautiful monuments, fun ambiance, and great eclectic food. O, food… where wouldn’t I go for you? Maybe I should make “Stuffing myself in poutine while tripping down the cobblestone streets of Old Montreal” my #1 touristic mission of the year. Now that’s the kinda goal that’ll make me take the plunge in a second!

For years, I’ve been dreaming of traveling all through Iceland! It might be the rocky landscapes, or how isolated the island seems to be. Or maybe my love for Björk… who knows. I’d love to tour the Ring Road, go glacier hiking, take a swim in a thermal pool, and maybe watch the Northern Lights (in winter) or the midnight sun (in the summer)! Here are a few pictures I curated from Flickr of the different things I’d like to see in this beautiful country!

Let’s start with the landscapes!
One of Iceland thermal pools, the Myvatn Nature Baths
(*and not The Blue Lagoon, as I originally typed!) (Best Riads)
The icebergs of Jökulsárlón (kaszeta)
Reykjavik’s colorful houses (Teatsche)
I wouldn’t be “me” if I didn’t include a little food 😉
Besides the fish and lamb dishes, Pylsur (Icelandic hot dog) seems to be THE local specialty to try out! (amylaurensantee)
