Iceland 4

Western Ring Road
The west coast of Iceland is a different creature than the southern Ring Road. The Snæfellsnes Peninsula is considered by many to be “mini Iceland” due to the variety of terrain. It’s long been a special place, thanks to Jules Verne’s book Journey to the Center of the Earth: where the entryway to the center of our planet is through Snæfellsjökull Volcano on the tip of the peninsula.

Once upon a time, in the land of fire and ice, of volcanoes and glaciers, magic and mystery, three unicorns set out on an Icelandic adventure. 

Iceland is the most magical place on Earth. 
 After visiting 54 countries, this one is my favorite.

Where America’s Day Begins

In 1898, Guam was captured and ceded to the United States. It’s an American territory where the citizens cannot vote (no electoral votes), but they do have a congressional delegate (who also cannot vote). Due to the island’s location in Micronesia, across the International Date Line, it is the first place the sun rises each day in the United States.

Hence, where America’s day begins.
