The First Northern Lights Show of 2014
My American girlfriend came to visit me over the holidays. My favorite part about that visit (besides seeing her, of course) was allowing myself to become a “tourist” in my own country again. She wanted to drive the Golden Circle, which is something I rarely do during winter. Gullfoss was particularly magnificent wearing its winter coat, covered in ice and snow. She also wanted to see the mystical northern lights. I don’t have much control of northern lights activity and cloud covers, but it “forced” me to keep an eye on the northern lights forecast daily. That’s also something us Icelanders don’t do very often. I gave some tips on the best way to look for the northern lights in this post.
