Last Day in Arnarstapi – Kirsten Surdej

Yesterday was our last day in Arnarstapi, where we’ve been staying for the past few days. Arnarstapi, a small seaside town on the western coast of Iceland, was a much quieter place than Reykjavik, the capital—here’s a picture of our guest-house’s yard.

Unexpected Archway – Jory Garner

Blues crashing together meet at the coast of Iceland. The rippling deep cobalt of the North Atlantic crashes into the grass and moss-padded cliffsides of the this island coastland.

Day 1 – Kim Harman

The 1.5 hour bus ride from UNH to the airport turned into more like 2.5 hours. We survived, but only just barely. We were reduced to guessing what kind of life people in nearby cars led. Call us crazy, but we were sure the three unmarked white trucks were involved in a government conspiracy with […]
