Memories from Iceland 2016

blog-aug-28-2016-1-flying-over-greenlandA few hours ago the Atlantic salmon of Iceland exploit came to an end.  We boarded our flight from Reykjavik back to the States and will be home tonight.  I’m the pleasant kind of exhausted from a month of travel, fishing, short nights and writing the blog.  We are presently 35,000 feet above Greenland.  It’s clear and the view is worth staying awake for.
