Reynisfjara

I stand alone on this rocky beach

Cold breeze against my face

Rain, Hail even

I look at the horizon that lays infront of me

Endless possibilities

Endless dreams

Endless yearnings

What do I choose today?

 

 

This was written in Reynisfjara beach, during my time in Iceland in November 2016. Made famous by its black sands and its basalt column cliffs, it is a hauntingly beautiful sight. Reynisfjara is located in South Iceland , near the village Vik, 180kms from the capital city of Reykjavik. It is on the way to Vatnajokull and Jokulsarlon, the famous glacier lagoon in South East Iceland. Despite the handsome sights the waves are quite tricky, they almost have a life of their own. Tourists are told to steer clear of the waves as every month an accident is reported in its waters. In a country that sees 1.7 million tourists annually, the number is quite alarming! But don’t let that keep you away from spending an afternoon here. Bring a book, a flask of your favourite warm beverage and let the sights around you bedazzle you!
