Iceland: Exploring the South Shore

Magic. Pure magic. Everything about Iceland is a fairytale, and I've fallen head over heels for it. I only had two days in the fair country, and I'm mourning the loss of all the missed days of adventure up until now.
When can I go back?
My best friend flew in from Seattle and met me in Reykjavik, where we spent a whirlwind couple of days touring the area as much as possible.
Our first day we went on a tour of the south shore, which included a black sand beach with basalt column cliffs, hiking the Solheimajokull glacier, stops at the Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls, and a few small towns where we filled up on coffee and perused a wide selection of traditional sweaters I'll never be able to afford. 
I'm also relatively certain that it's impossible to take an unattractive photo of Iceland. See below for proof.

    1. I know! It's a hot spot for travel-lovers these days, and I can't blame anyone for that. I'm honestly looking into visa requirements! haha. Get thee to Iceland!
