3 Years Later in Iceland 三年後的冰島

Have you imagined going back to the same place in some years later? Three years ago in 2016, I first landed in Reykjavik and I could still remember the very first image in my mind was an empty land covered all by snow everywhere that I saw through the window from the plane. I never thought I would come back but I did it three years later in 2019. This time I took my boyfriend to everywhere that I'd been before, introduced him to the dish I'd tried once, and went on a journey that I didn't experience earlier.


你有想過回去一個你曾經到訪的地方嗎?在2016年三年前,我第一次踏足了雷克雅未克,我還記得它對我的第一印象就是在飛機靠窗座位上看出去一片蓋滿白雪的空地。當時我也從沒想過會有再回來的一天,可是最後因機緣巧合下在2019年再次來到了冰島。這次我帶著我的男朋友到了我以前去過的地方,給他介紹我曾經吃過的美食,也體驗了一些我之前也沒做過的事情。

The Incredible View from the Iconic Cathedral Hallgrimskirkja


I didn't even know the cathedral is also an observatory tower until I came here again in 2019. I was so glad that I came and took lots of beautiful pictures of Reykjavik from the top near sunrise time about 11am. The sky gave an extra glory touch for a dull white snowy village. It was freezing but it was worth every penny I paid for the view. It was amazing.


到哈爾格林姆教堂看美景


當我再次來到這教堂的時候,我才發現原來這裡也是觀光塔來的!超級開心的是我發現得不遲也不晚,早上十一點多我也在這裡拍了很多好看的日出照片,這還讓這本來單調的白雪村莊加了點光芒。實在是太美了!即使是超冷,也是值了!


Not to Miss the Sunrise in Reykjavik


Sunrise in Iceland is gorgeous! It's so beautiful that I couldn't find something else to compare it with. It's not only how the sunrise in front made my picture perfect, but also how you can catch sunrise without any struggles of waking up in the very early morning or possibly staying up for the whole night just for a sparkling moment! I have to tell you how easy to catch such beautiful moment as I could see sunrise and also sunset every single day in wintertime!


不能錯過雷克雅未克的日出


冰島的日出實在是犯規了,我根本沒辦法找到其他跟它相比的東西。這可不只是因為這麼美的日出讓我的照片好看而已,同時是你不必費神去熬夜或早起去等看日出!在冬天的時候,根本上是隨便都能看到好看的日出呢!



What is the Taste of Iceland?


Grillmarkaðurinn Lækjargata 2a, 101 Reykjavík, Iceland


This year I came back to the same restaurant that I went twice in 2016. I wondered if they were still in the same standard with high quality of food and service. I think the taste of Iceland wasn't changed much. It's still the same Icelandic taste from my memory. But when I looked at the pictures from the last time, I realised the portion of both dishes (the duck salad and pork ribs) seems to be a lot smaller than the ones from 3 years ago.


什麼是來自冰島的味道?


這次我回到了三年前來過的一家餐廳,想說要來看看他們的水準有沒有下降了。我想冰島的味道沒怎麼變,跟我回憶中的一樣。不過當我回家看到照片後,發現兩道菜(鴨肉沙拉和排骨)跟三年前的比好像都少了很多呢?


The Blue Lagoon Definitely Earned its Name


Blue Lagoon Iceland has been my all-time favourite attraction and it never disappointed me! Although it could get very busy sometimes, I'd say it's still worth a visit. Look at the pictures! Isn't it beautiful? It's a very unique experience of having a spa in front of a snow mountain and all the volcano surroundings. It's not cheap but it's worth every penny that you paid for.


藍湖絕不是浪得虛名


在冰島的藍湖是我最愛的景點,其中原因是因為它從不讓我失望!雖然有時候這裡人很多,但是還是很值得去的喔。看看照片吧,是不是超美的?在雪山前面和火山周圍泡溫泉真是一個超級特別的體驗!的確這並不便宜,可是一定是值回票價的。



Catch the One and Only Northern Lights in the Dark


One of the must-dos in everyone's checklist during wintertime in Iceland has to be watching the aurora lights! I guess my photography skill has been growing a lot better in 3 year times. My 2019 photos are obviously in higher quality than the 2016 ones. I'm so graceful to be that lucky that I could literally catch Northern lights every single time, not only in Iceland but also in Finland as well. But I have to say that this time in 2019 was the strongest one I've ever seen! It was really jaw-dropping!


在黑夜中追逐北極光


在冰島就好像必須要看極光的,對吧?我想我的拍照技術在三年內進步了不少,看著2019年的照片都比2016年的高質多了。我很感恩的是我每次去看極光都能看到,不光只是在冰島,而且在芬蘭也是。不過這一年在冰島看到的卻是我看到過最強的一次!真的是太奇妙了!


Capture the Powerful Geysir in no Time


If you are going to visit the Golden Circle, visiting the Geysir will be on the list. It's hard to predict when a geyser will explode so you should always get your camera ready. I spent around 30 minutes here and I managed to see three times of it! The picture can't do it justice; you have to see and feel it in person.


一秒捕捉強勁的間歇泉


如果你會去黃金圈,那你將會看到間歇泉。間歇泉是很難觸摸的,你是預計不了它到底下一次爆發會是什麼時候,所以你需要隨時準備好。我大概在這裡花了半個小時,總共看到了三次!我的照片也拍不出現場的震撼,你們一定要親身去感受一下喔!


Pin Gullfoss Waterfall on your Maps


Gullfoss is also within the Golden Circle and it's probably the most popular waterfall in Iceland. It seemed to be a lot colder around the same time in 2019. I'm so happy that I was able to see it again in a better weather condition. There was even a rainbow this time. How lucky I actually was!


到古佛斯瀑布定位打卡


古佛斯瀑布也是在黃金圈裡,大概是在冰島裡最受歡迎的瀑布吧。三年後的那些時候好像是更冷了一點。我也是很開心的我能再次在天氣好的時候看到這瀑布一次,這次我還看到了彩虹!真的是太幸運了!


This was a fun way to see how a place has either changed or remained the same. I'd still love to come back in Iceland and see it all over again in a different season next time. I'll be back, Iceland!


這回顧真是有趣!讓我看到了冰島的在三年後的改變。我還是很想再回到冰島,最好是在不同的節日,讓我再次看到不一樣的冰島!我會再回來的!
