Over and over I've been asked, why Iceland? Was it the dramatic and ever-changing landscape?
Or the countryside?
Perhaps it was unique art or architecture.
Or maybe it was a trusting culture. A place where children wait outside while mom is shopping.
But it could have been the food (remind me to tell you what this dish is called. Clue - in Icelandic it means "confusion in the mouth.")
Or, maybe the healthy "hot pots" filled with warmth and minerals.
Maybe it was a week of no phone, very limited electronics and limited conversation. Just lots of beauty, peace and quiet.
I was inspired by Chef Marian from the Victory Garden from an episode that aired more than ten years ago and I'm so glad we visited this incredible country.
If I had to say why we visited Iceland, I would have to say "all of the above."
