One of our Explorers, Andy Best, recently made a trip to the awe-inspiring country of Iceland and returned with some stunning photos that are sure to inspire the wonderlust in all of us. In order to document Iceland's ancient ice, aurora borealis, dominating mountain ranges, and black sand beaches, Andy endured freezing temperatures, sleepless nights, wind whipped sand and snow, and the crew he was with even lost two cameras to the elements. But if you ask Andy, he'd do it all over again. If you need a reason to visit Iceland yourself, these 21 photos from Andy's trip oughtta do it. And if that's not enough...he swears by the tasty bacon-wrapped Icelandic hot dogs.
