Well, lots of people, of course, but we didn't know any of those people. The people we knew who went on honeymoons went to places like France and Aruba and Cancun. Places where it tended to be warm in the summer.
Nuts to that. We wanted to go someplace where coats and gloves were needed in mid-June. We are hardy stock! Or stupid. We'll let you know which at some point in the future.
Also, we liked confusing people who kept saying things like, "Why don't you go to Rome or Paris instead? There's not so much nature and outdoors there." Or "Because you don't think that anyone goes to Iceland on their honeymoon isn't really a good enough reason for you to go to Iceland on your honeymoon." We scoffed. (And we don't see why not.) So after much fussing with dates and the buying of guide books, we made plans to fly to Reykjavik in mid-June until the end of the first week of July 2013.
This blog started as a way for us to remember the trip we're about to take to Iceland for our honeymoon, and will include other travels that we take.
