Thanksgiving, a day traditionally spent with family, enjoying a big, sumptuous meal, and watching tv. It’s an easy, casual day. Some of you might even be meeting your partner’s parents, for the first time or otherwise! I decided to come up with a little guide, taking into consideration what goes down during thanksgiving. I.E, it’s supposedly a pretty chill day, you’re not planning on a … Continue reading Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas!
It was our final full day in Iceland today, dedicated to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. I’ve heard lots about Snaefellsnes, but I hadn’t done much research here, preferring to opt for a drive around the national park, and stop as and when we pleased. There’s a whole plethora of things to do here, and you can easily spend 3 days here. However, since we had one … Continue reading Day 12 – Snaefellsnes Peninsula
We woke up to the best breakfast spread we’ve had this trip – and that includes hotel buffets that we’ve been to. It was a homemade spread kindly offered by our hosts, with smoked salmon, smoked lamb, bread, cheeses, fruits platter, yogurt etc. Basically, anything anyone could have asked for! You’ll be surprised how proper food gets you ready for the day! After breakfast, we … Continue reading Day 11 – Chilling in the Westfjords with Horses and Seals

Iceland’s the only country so far where, thanks to the weather, the actual time taken between destinations take longer than the timing shown on apps such as google maps. We started out around noon, and reached Ísafjörður at 8pm. Reasons? The weather, the roads (particularly so … Continue reading Day 9 – The Westfjords
We rose bright and early this morning, ready to take on the road once again. It was going to be a long drive to the West Fjords, and we were looking forward to the dramatic scenery on the road, that is, until we looked at the Northern Lights forecast. Locals will always tell you the chances of seeing Northern lights from September onwards are high. In … Continue reading Day 8 – Fishing in Sauðárkrókur and the Northern lights
After an evening of random tv and early sleep, we were all ready for Day 7. It was a good day, bright and sunny as we headed off to our first stop; Goðafoss, one of the most historic waterfalls in Iceland! Goðafoss is known as the “Waterfall of the Gods”. How did this name come about? Legend has it that in year 1000, a local cheiftain, Þorgeir Ljósvetningagoði, decided … Continue reading Day 7 – Goðafoss and Horse riding in Sauðárkrókur
