Evie Mohrfeld: Off to a land of adventure in Iceland

Published 6:14 pm Tuesday, August 1, 2023

On Aug. 2-8 we will be off traveling with our seniors.

We are looking forward to our tour of Iceland as we pack our bags and make sure that we have our passports.  

We will be loading at 2:15 p.m. and departing at 2:30 p.m. for the Twin Cities to board our flight. The trip will be a five hour time difference. We can expect Iceland to be full of surprises. For one, it isn’t an ice country. We will in fact, experience views of stunning scenery with beautiful coastal lakes, spouting geysers, hot springs and mud pools.
