Hello there my amazing Steemian friends. Just recently I posted a post with some amazing photos of Iceland. It is truly a beautiful country. And, I thought those photos were amazing. I mean they are, but these new photos my brother sent me are another level of beautiful. He visited Grimadalur with two of his friends. Now I tried to find some information about it but when I tried to use google maps to see where its located you can't even find it on google maps. lol All I know is that people like to go for a hike there and the pictures and videos my brother sent me explained why? So let me show why...
All I could find out about it was that it was near the city called Dalvik which was about 37km away from the Akureyri where my brother lives now. He went there with two of his friends who are living with him in a shared house. My brother told me it took them about 35 minutes to get there. They all work and live together and seems to go on adventures together. My brother took some pictures of their road trip to Grimudalur.
It seemed like they had to take a little hike to get to the place they wanted to see. And, of course, that meant they had to take some selfies while walking. I mean we all have to give in to our selfie disorder every once in a while. If we did not do that what would be the point of owning a phone? lol I mean besides calling somebody to tell them you took some selfies?
I was surprised in the last post about how green it is really was. I mean you would think just on the basis of the name Iceland you would expect more ice. lol Well, I was pleasantly surprised how green it was in my last post, but these pictures I am about to share with you guys showed me just how much the name Iceland goes with ice.lol
I don't know about you but as soon as I saw these first two pictures I was stunned. Ice really does not describe Iceland at all. I absolutely loved this huge green pastures with a river flowing through the middle of them. It was not at all what I expected to see in the country with ice being the first 3 letters of its name. lol Assumptions are tricky to say at least.
There is one thing I absolutely love more than any of these amazing pictures my brother sent me? And, that is how happy my brother looks in all of his photos. I mean when someone is truly happy you can see it in the photos. I could sense that he is happy when we talk, but some of these photos really capture how happy he is. I am incredibly happy he is happy and has finally found his peace. Even though he is a long way from home.
To say at least, he is working hard, but enjoying life at the same time. I keep imagining how fresh the air is it over there with all of this untouched nature. The way we are polluting this planet soon fresh air will become a luxury. I hope we really do change our ways before that happens. Nikola keeps telling me it is even more beautiful to witness all of this in person. And, I am sure it is. Soon they arrived at a little wooden bridge and it was time to take a little rest and snap some more photos.
This is the place where his friend showed how flexible she is. She must have been doing some yoga no doubt in my mind. I practice yoga as well, but I think I would fall on my nose trying to do some these poses for the photo. lol I can already see myself trying to do it, falling down on my nose, and rolling into the river. O yeah, and pulling my hamstring. lol Hats off to his very flexible friend.
I honestly thought it can not get much better than what I have already seen so far. I was impressed already to say at least. But, then I saw some more photos which literally left me stunned. This place is full of little gorgeous waterfalls coming down from the hills. I mean this is nature at its best. Simply amazing. I think you will agree with me.
You would think this was the best of it all until I got the final photo. A simply stunning shot of the entire area where the lake connects with the Atlantic ocean. This place is truly an amazing piece of nature. I always say God is our greatest artist and nature are his greatest pieces of "art." Nothing can compare to his work.
What to say really, my amazing Steemian friends? I am just incredibly thankful my brother has found his way in life and that he is happy. He truly deserves it. Iceland is a beautiful country and I can't wait to see more photos from my brother in the future. Not to mention I am happy to share it with you guys as well. I am sure he has only scratched the surface with exploring Iceland. But, from what we are seeing from these photos we are in for a treat in the future posts. I strongly advise you to check out a short video I made of his little adventure to Grimudalur. It will bring you even close to its beauty.
Thank you all for reading and watching, have a blessed day, much love,
