Iceland Day 6: South Iceland

Jokulsarlon: Listed as a highlight in our guide and it most definitely was! The amphibian tour was worth it. There’s multiple spots along the shore that you can snap some pics but the views from the boat were spectacular

Iceland Day 5: Southeast

After the previous day’s tough drive, we opted to skip the smaller routes today. The consequence was missing a couple fjords but the Ring Road also takes you around a couple, like Berufjordur, on the route towards the South. First stop: Djupivogur This is a small town with only 3 dining options (we had the fish soup and […]

Iceland, Day 0: Getting there

I would be remiss if I began telling you about my Iceland trip without sharing about how I got there. WOW Air, a discount airline that just started direct routes to Reykjavik from San Francisco, has directly impacted the amount of friends and family visiting this tiny little country. I first heard of WOW when a $299 round trip […]
