Our trip to Iceland is coming round soon and as you can imagine, we’re all pretty excited about it. We’re going to be in Iceland for a lot longer than most places we visit in Europe and there’s a good group of us going so we’ve started the planning waaaay ahead of what I would … Continue Reading

These are all cities I have had the pleasure of visiting at one time or the other and while I love travelling to many cities and spending a few days there, coming from London, there are very few cities where I’ve been left thinking “I could live here..” after a visit.

It’s official! We’re heading back to Iceland! We definitely couldn’t stay away for too long and we’re looking forward to getting around and doing some of the stuff we did before and a lot more stuff we didn’t get to do the first time around (which doesn’t seem like much as we spent every waking … Continue Reading

It’s always been a dream of mine to come here and as it was quite an early flight, I was really looking forward to just relaxing on the first day. I honestly can not recommend … Continue Reading

Following on from my inital post about my trip to Iceland and things to do in Iceland, here are photos from Geysir – which is where the English world Geyser comes from and, you guessed it, full of Geysers.
