Iceland's Blue Lagoon Looks Really Different On Instagram And In Real Life
*crops smoke stacks and several drunk tourists out of shot*
~Intrigued~, I decided to do a little online stalking and find out just how different the Blue Lagoon is IRL than in the ridiculously gorgeous pics everyone posts on Instagram. Here are my findings:
This is Blue Lagoon on Instagram:
And THIS is Blue Lagoon in reality:
On Instagram? Warm! Tranquil! Inviting!
In reality, it's next door to, like, a factory...?
On Instagram, the Blue Lagoon looks so peaceful! Perfect for some much-needed alone time.
IRL, it's full of tourists and lined with damp towels and slippers from Marshalls!!!!!!!
Instagram makes it look ~très chic~ and luxurious.
But in real life, it looks like a dirty water park. No offense.
You know how literally EVERYONE who visits puts this sand/clay stuff on their face and takes a pic?
This is what they ACTUALLY look like.
And just trying to get a pic with Your Gurlz™ without any randos photobombing?
Yeah. Not as easy as you'd think.
The water looks SOOOO000oooOOOOo blue in all these Instas!!!!!!!
Meanwhile, in actuality:
Sure, the Blue Lagoon is still kinda pretty with or without VSCO filters.
But if you're planning on visiting, just make sure to crop the smoke stacks out of your shot!!!!!!!
