Mother Nature is Amazing!

Searching for Warmth at Hveraröndor Hverir!

Miss me?  Its been a few day since my last post on here…  I spent last weekend in Paris!  It was beautiful there and I had far more fun than I had thought I would!  People like to talk down on it a lot, say its dirty, crowded…  It turned out to be cleaner than […]

Hotel Aldan

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

The morning of day 6 started dreary and rained quite a lot.  Not a big surprise for this area of the country…  We still set out on our route though, determined not to let the cold and wet stop us from seeing some sights that my friend particularly wanted to see.  A lot of people […]


The Eastern Fjords of Iceland

Driving into the eastern part of Iceland….  Pure beauty…  The area leading into the fjords was absolutely beautiful.  After passing the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, the tourists seem to vanish and you pass very few cars on the road, especially along the fjords.  It has a remote feeling that I fell in love with…  The above […]

Hiking up the Svínafellsjökull Glacier in Iceland

Hiking up a Glacier!!!

I booked the tour with Icelandic Mountain Guides and absolutely loved our tour guide and the other […]

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon!

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon…  Another one of those iconic places in Iceland…  And yet, one of the best to stop and see!  This lagoon was beautiful, incredible, and the contained the first icebergs I had ever seen!  Needless to say, I took just a few pictures of them!  The other best part about this place?  The […]

River near Dverghamrar

Heading to Svartifoss

After our stint at Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon, we continued 21 kilometers down the road to a little pull off for Dverghamrar.  This is a tiny stop, but one worth the time out of the car.  Just below the parking area (its obscured from view of the car park) is an area in the middle of two hills comprised […]
