May 11, 2017 The Real VikingSushi Adventure

My friend and I recently went on our first campervan adventure together to Snæfellsnes along the west coast of Iceland. There was so much we were impressed about, including Stykkishólmur, one of the film locations you may recognize from Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

May 4, 2017 Stargazing in Iceland

April 27, 2017 My Favorite Waterfall: Kvernufoss

April 18, 2017 Fermented Shark

Iceland is known for some weird food. Of all the things Icelanders pickle, stew, brew, and marinate, putrefied shark is most famous.

Bjarnarhöfn Shark Museum is located on […]
