The runners-up:

There is nothing like an ice-cold beer on an ice-cold glacier.

Did you know that the word “föstudagur” which means friday in Icelandic comes from the fact that this was the day when they could not eat meat? Although today some call it “flöskudagur” because flaska translates as bottle, and this is the day when they can finally unwind after a long week and party. We wish you all a good weekend!? ______________________ Tudtátok, hogy izlandiul a péntek “föstudagur”, ami eredetileg azt jelentette, hogy ezen a napon nem ettek húst. Manapság viszont sokan a pénteket “floskudagurnak” hívják, a “flaska” szó miatt, ami a palack izlandi megfelelöje, hiszen ezen a napon engedhetik el megukat végre a hosszú hét után, és ihatnak egy pohárral. Mindenkinek nagyon szép hétvégét kívánunk!? #erlendistravel #iceland #izland #facts #friday #saturday #weekend #beer #glacier #ice #nature #mik #ikozosseg #mutimitiszol #mutimiteszel #drink #hungarian_photographers #instahun #travel #friend #magyar #magyarig #wow #gvpics #we #bestoficeland #picoftheday #love #pia #sör

This slide is surely just as cold as it is fun.

Squad goals.

Beautiful scenery, a historic church and a popsicle!

#? Ananas popsicle, perfect after the pool. 晴天后游完泳一颗菠萝冰棍儿,完美耶

“Go stand on that hill, it’ll make for a good photo.” 11 minutes later:

This Monday is making me feel as stranded as this boat.

A morning duck meeting.”
