I didn’t visit every destination on my 2015 bucket list this year, but that’s just fine. I’m more interested in quality travel than in quantity. This is perhaps why I don’t travel full-time.

Ethereal Beauty: Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, Iceland (PHOTOS)

When you think of Iceland, is this what you picture? If so, you wouldn’t be wrong as Iceland is home to glaciers galore, including Iceland’s largest ice cap, Vatnajökull.
