Planning my trip itinerary to Iceland

Tickets bought, This is happening! 

I am insanely, astronomically, ludicrously, massively, (insert similar superlatives here) excited to finally make a dream a reality. Iceland has been on my bucket list and my adventure list for years. Hours have been spent researching, reading other travel blogs, pinning things on Pinterest and planning out this thirteen day trip. For whatever reason, this island plotted in the north Atlantic just really intrigues and fascinates me. Its sheer beauty and endless wonders outdoors has me hooked. The rough detail right now is to fly into Keflavik and get lost in the capitol city for two days, then rent a 4x4 and spend the remainder of the trip driving the country's 830-mile Route 1 or commonly known as the "Ring Road." I'll be staying in hostels, bed and breakfasts, camping out and probably sleeping in the back seat one or few times as I attempt to see as many of the national parks, glaciers, volcanoes, hot springs and boatloads more. Stay tuned. Let the countdown to October begin!
