Vik: A Study In Contrasts
In January, my husband treated me to the best 40th birthday present - a trip to Iceland. One of our favorite stops on our exploration of Iceland was Vik, the country's Southernmost village.

Iceland is a wonderful study in contrasts - light and dark, soft and hard - and nowhere was that on display more than at Vik's gorgeous black sand beach. I loved the contrast between the fluffy white snow and the coarse black sand.

If you visit Iceland, I highly recommend a trip to Vik, especially in the winter when the beautiful contrasts I came to associate with Iceland are at their most dramatic.
