On the last day in Iceland, K had to leave to go work, so I was left by myself. I wondered around the city center for a bit, but since it was raining I had to go back to the hotel and just wait for my time to go. This was an incredibly trip, but…Read More

Iceland, the land of ice and fire – day 6
OMGeee…it’s been such a long time. I’ve been thinking about closing this space more than once, throughout these past few months. I’ve been on summer break for a week now, and for the first few days it took me a while to completely turn my mind off. It was an intense year. You see, when…Read More
Iceland, the land of ice and fire – day 5
How I missed this. On our 5th day in Iceland we woke up feeling very relaxed after having spent more than two hours floating in sulfur rich waters. The plan was to drive to Goðafoss waterfall and visit Akureyri a beautiful and small fishing city, full of colour out on the streets and trolls. Yes, trolls.…Read More
Iceland, the land of ice and fire – day 4.
On our fourth day we woke up pretty refreshed. We had breakfast available at the guesthouse we were staying in, and it was quite beautiful to eat a modest but plentiful breakfast, in a nice and warm place. I really dunno why I didn’t take pictures of the breakfast though… The day started off a…Read More
Iceland, the land of ice and fire – day 3, part 2

It was the peak of summer when we were there, so obviously there wasn’t as much snow as usual, but it was still freaking amazing! It’s quite…Read More
Iceland, the land of ice and fire – day 3, part 1.
Skógafoss was right next to our hotel, and we had only seen it from the ground, so we went back and climbed up to the top in order to get the full experience of one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland. It’s 15m wide and has a 60m drop, and it used to fall to…Read More
Iceland, the land of ice and fire – day 2.
We got up pretty early to enjoy the warm pool of the hotel. It’s nice to stay in a nice warm bath while it’s freezing outside (okay, it wasn’t freezing, but it was pretty cold, around 9ish ºC). We didn’t have much time, because we wanted to make our 6 day road trip worthwhile, so…Read More
Iceland, the land of ice and fire – day 1.
For a 6 day journey we had decided to drive around Iceland. We left baby L with the grandparents and we were off to a cold and amazing journey around this European jewel lost in Atlantic. We had tremendous help from miss-i-am-free, who had been to the island and had first hand tips for us.…Read More
