Daina Tagavi, a postdoctoral research fellow in the READi Lab, just returned from a 10-day trip to Iceland! This trip has been on Daina’s bucket list for years. It was also a time to celebrate graduating from her doctoral program, as she was unable to travel last year due to the pandemic.
Daina spent eight 8 days of her trip driving the Ring Road around the coast of the country. She stopped and explored several towns and national parks along the way. She spent her time hiking, soaking in hot springs, chasing the Northern Lights, and touring the countless waterfalls, craters, and volcanoes the country has to offer. She reported being surprised at how amazing the food was in Iceland and how many sheep were just hanging out everywhere! Daina also spent two days in the Capital of Iceland, Reykjavik, where she learned about the history of the country at the National Museum of Iceland and visited the famous Blue Lagoon.
Welcome back, Daina! We’re glad you enjoyed your trip.
