Iceland_D3_1

Our third and final full day had fast approached. We woke to a bleak, grey sky. Typical, it was exactly the same as the last time we were in Vik. We’d hoped to visit the sights that we didn’t get to see last time because of the horrid, wet weather. We went to black beach and left as the...

Iceland_D2_1

We woke relatively early on day two of our last minute adventure. Stu wanted to revisit south Iceland. I had my reservations, I was a little concerned that we would end up seeing everything that we’d already seen on our previous trip. Nevertheless, we made our way south heading towards Vik. Our first stop was Hveragerdi. We’d only briefly...

Iceland_D1_1

It was a very last minute trip to Iceland. We booked it less than 24 hours before we were due to fly. We hired a camper from Kuku Campers but had no idea what direction we were going to go and what we wanted to see. So with a couple of hours to spare before we could pick up the van, we went...

Kirkjufoss Iceland

We had no time whatsoever to plan for our second trip to our favourite country. We booked the flight less than 24 hours before take off. It was a case of dashing home from work to pack and sorting out care for our beautiful Frenchies, Neville and Ralph. On the plane I read the Iceland guidebook and tried to...

Iceland Plane Wreck DC3

When we first went to Iceland in 2012, I really wanted to visit the Iceland plane wreck (US Navy Dakota DC-3, it could actually be a C-47 Skytrain) that crashed on the black beach at Solheimasandur, a vast area of sand and gravel in South Iceland close to the town of Vik. It looked like a truly interesting place to...

KuKu Campers

Nat and I had some time booked off at work and we had planned to go to Scotland in our camper. The weather report however looked quite poor and not wanting to ruin our trip we decided to start looking at last minute flights. Now when I say last minute I literally mean 2 days before our leave started....

Wangz Hotel, Singapore

We’ve stayed in many hotels around the world – budget, luxurious, and quirky. Here’s our favourite 6… Volcano Hotel: This was the first hotel we stayed in when we went to Iceland. We didn’t want to leave. We were given a very warm welcome and the owners could not do enough for us. The decor was minimalist with a...

Northern Lights over Gullfoss, Iceland

Seeing the Northern Lights is pure pot luck. You’re either lucky or you aren’t. One things for sure though, you need to be patient. That’s something that I’m not. Our first night in Iceland was spent in the amazing Volcano Hotel just outside of Vik. After an early morning flight and a long day, I went to bed. Stu...

Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon, Iceland

It’s no great secret that we fell in love with Iceland. Hiring a car and going on a road trip to see the ever changing scenery, the many waterfalls and the numerous adventure activities ensured we had an action filled week. It’s a destination we often think about, talk about and discuss when we will return. Inspired by Iceland have...
