Vatnajökull glacier covers 8% of Iceland, 3100 sq miles with an average thickness of 1300 ft, and is the largest by volume in Europe. One of its terminuses (termini?) is the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon where calved icebergs float lazily before draining out to the ocean. As they are battered by the waves, they break apart and wash back up onto the volcanic black sand beach, looking like diamonds in just the right light. . Today felt like we finally hit our #vanlife stride. Though kid schedules are still shifted about two hours late (9a - 9p instead of 7a - 7p), we all got the kids fed and the van contents stowed relatively smoothly. Short drive, some great exploration and amazing views back at camp. That is until some jackass parks in front of it. . #jokulsarlon #diamondbeach #iceland #travelwithkids #familytravel #nomadicbreedersunite
