Aurora Borealis, We Finally See You!

I apologized for the long wait on posting my Portugal/Malta trip because we spent the Thanksgiving week back to Iceland to hunt for the Aurora Borealis! We finally saw it, it was one of the most incredible moments we experienced in our adventures! Wedding season is over so I can spend more time on processing the photos and posting the trip reports 🙂 Please check back for updates, here are some teaser photos:

We arrived at 4:30 am and drove straight to Kirkjufellsfoss for sunrise at 10 am.

On Thanksgiving Day, the Northern Lights put on an awesome show for us that lasted more than 4 hours and we were asking ourselves.....when should we head back to sleep?
