Blue Lagoon Iceland

The Landscape of Iceland

Iceland is a magical place! Not only do Icelanders believe in little people, the black lava rocks and lack of trees make it feel like you are visiting land similar to the moon. The area around the Blue Lagoon pictured below was especially beautiful.

No wonder Iceland has given birth to unique and talented musicians such as Bjork, Sigur ros, Mum and now recently Of Monsters And Men… A land like this must provide tons of creative inspiration! Reykjavik is also gorgeous and reminds me of an oversized fisher’s town. At night, Icelander’s enjoy drinking as cafe’s and burger joints by day, turn into bars and nightclubs.

About Claire

I grew up in both the Netherlands and the US. When I moved to America at age 10 I was confronted with conflicting social constructs of gender and class. As a student of the social and cognitive sciences, I gained a greater understanding of how human decision-making can lead to unintended system-wide consequences in the interdependent world we live in, especially when you throw stereotyping into the mix. Having struggled as both a poor and female American citizen, I am quite aware of what it means to blame a victim for their circumstances. I feel that I have a voice, and responsibility, to stand up for those who are currently silent.
