The Seaside Calls


One girl's mission to escape monotony

Vik | Iceland

Day 5 In Iceland

Vik

We finally arrived in Vik, and honestly, there really wasn’t much to see. The main reason I went was to see Vik Church, which the town is known for, but the only road that could take us there was closed for construction… So I saw it from beneath the hill it sits on, and that was that.

During our drive through Vik, Teresa and I found a little road on the side of the freeway, which we thought might be a good place to take some photos. When we got out of the car we saw that there were a bunch of wild rams there, and even a small waterfall. The lovely Teresa was willing to pose for the weird melancholy shoot I had envisioned, and these are a few of my favorites.

I had to do a self-portrait, of course.

Sadly, much like Gob Bluth, I made a huge mistake. I took off my favorite, most expensive shoes to change into my walking shoes, and I forgot them in that field. I would have gone back for them, but I was already back in Reykjavik by the time I noticed they were missing, and I’m sure they had already been devoured by the rams by then. Which reminds me, if you haven’t seen Rams (2015), you definitely should. It’s a beautiful and melancholy (how fitting!) Icelandic Indie film, and as of 2016, it is on Netflix.
