Aside from rotation & cropping, these photos are almost SOOC (straight off of camera). Iceland just looks like this.

Sunset over Snaefellsnes

ETA: Number of postcard requests exceeds number of postcards. Think I will get round this by selecting the first four respondents from DW & LJ and sending them the du Maurier postcards, and everyone else will receive postcards randomly selected from the stash accumulated from my travels. Is this OK with everyone?

Wow.

I really want to go to Iceland, how long were you there? It's a toss up between Iceland and Budapest on February. I can't decide!

We were there for eight days and it was incredible. But choosing between Iceland and Budapest really comes down to how much money you want to spend. Iceland is expensive for flights, accommodation (esp in Reykjavik) and food. Budapest is not!

These are stunning. Absolutely beautiful. That sunset makes me SO HAPPY.
I would love a postcard, but am also thinking of coming to Cambridge to see my various friends there. Are there any weekends that don't work for you ? I'm thinking maybe the weekend of the 25th ?

Thank you!
I won't be here the weekend of the 25th - I'll be in London for the nephew's christening. How's your planning going?

Was Iceland rainy or just cloudy?

Mostly cloudy. It drizzled off and on, but only rarely bucketed down.

These are just from the first two days. I'm hoping there will be more good ones in the next six days' worth!

Gorgeous. Did you happen to try the Hákarl, or fermented shark? I had a friend visit earlier this year & a member of her group got sick at the table. :/

No Hakarl. I read about it before I went and it did not sound appealing. Something that's not poisonous only when it's rotten and smells of wee? No, no no.

Heyyy, that's a good idea. Maybe not for this round, but I'll do it at some point. Thanks!

There's something to be said for low population density and isolation, I think. ;)
