Iceland Forever, Icelandic For life

I have to apologize again.. but I JUST finally unpacked! Do you know what that feels like? So great! As you may have guessed.. This is the last one.. The last two days of my Snorri 2016 Adventure. It is the last memories made in Iceland but is is also the beginning to the introduction…

Sun kissed and fogged down

þriðjudagur I woke up very early, actually I woke up every couple of hours and of course it is always bright outside so I couldn’t tell what time it was.. I got up finally around 06:00 and got ready, thinking it would just be easier to do when no one else was up and about….

Hofsós & the 21 burnt at the stake

I woke up at 7 am to go for a run around the town and do a little exercise while I was exploring. I told you the town was small. I went up and down the streets and only covered 3 km! I ran all the way to the outskirts of the town and admired…

Reyk & off

Wake up! Another super early morning, but this time it wasn’t for the gym. This time it was a 05:00 wake up to call my boyfriend, Nic, back at home. The whole time change doesn’t make for good phone call times. But honestly, who cares.. I’d much rather take the chance and have a phone…

Not Good-bye but Sjáumst Akureyri

Miðvikudagur  My last full day in Akureyri. My last day of being here in my home stay. My last day before the adventuring begins. It was a relaxed morning, waking up and eating breakfast around the table with Guðrún and Finnur. I had to go to work and make waffles at 1 so I wanted…

The girls take on the North

I have to apologize, but I have not had Wifi since last week, so I am definitely behind on posting these! But here are a couple to update you guys 🙂   Mánudagur Maybe not 100% after a day of no food at all, but after a good morning workout.. breakfast was on my mind….

I’m no superhero

I’ve had three days now that I’ve been sick, but I’m no superhero. I may workout so that I can look like one, but in reality, there will always be something that puts us a little back. This post won’t be the most exciting but I decided to ‘mush’ together the whole weekend and tell…

Óðinn, Þorgeir, and The Hidden People

05:00 comes pretty fast, but it was easy to wake up knowing I got to hear a familiar voice. It was around an hour and half that we were on the phone and I was smiling the entire time. I don’t think you know how much you could actually miss someone until you are 5,541…

The shire

So you know this photo, I’m sure that probably 99% of everyone has seen Lord of the Rings, so you know this is the shire that the hobbits live in. All the houses are sort of ‘tucked‘ into the hill side and covered in grass and moss. Well today I went to Laufás museum, and…

ég skil ekki

Culture shock noun the feeling of disorientation experienced by someone when they are suddenly subjected to an unfamiliar culture, way of life, or set of attitudes. We all think.. no that won’t be me. Turns out.. more than half the time it is you. I wouldn’t say it is culture shock that I am feeling,…

Holding it tight

This was sent to me the other day from our hike up Mt.Esja! Myself, Anders and James. Fimmtudagur I don’t think anyone can say they have woken up as slowly as I did on Thursday. I knew when I opened my eyes it meant I had to pack-up and leave. This week, as eye opening…

R&R

No alarms. No rush. No plans. No nothing. Exactly what I needed. I’ve had a chest and throat cold since being in Reykjavik and it seems to be lingering. Everything here has been go-go-go the whole time so I finally thought to myself.. “maybe that’s why I’m not getting any better?“. Tuesday I knew Adda,…
