What I wore in Iceland

What I wore in Iceland

With a name like Iceland, you’d expect a bit of cool weather on a trip there. We went in October, which is considered the off-season. The temperature usually ranges around 2 and 7 degrees Celsius. It’s cool, verging on cold, especially in the evenings. With […]

My Favourite Photos of 2019

My Favourite Photos of 2019

Looking back on the year, I feel like I’ve had a pretty good 2019. I’ve felt better this year, mentally. Not as better physically, but we’re working on that, now aren’t we. I’ve had the great fortune to travel a bit this year, and have […]

A Taste of Iceland

A Taste of Iceland

Iceland isn’t necessarily known for being a food destination. Because it’s an island, and there’s not much arable land, they have to ship a lot of food in. That’s reflected in the prices. It’s not super cheap to eat dinner out, that’s for sure. Here’s […]

Iceland – Between the Continents

Iceland – Between the Continents

Iceland is one of the most geologically interesting places on earth. Because of it’s location on the mid-Atlantic range, the geothermal activity is rampant. This is why there are so many volcanoes, lava fields and hot springs throughout the country. One place you can see […]

Iceland – The Blue Lagoon

Visiting the Blue Lagoon was the thing I was most excited about on our trip to Iceland. This is easily one of Iceland’s most popular tourist destinations – and I think it deserves the hype. The Blue Lagoon is about 45 minutes outside of Reykjavik. […]

Iceland – Chasing the Northern Lights

Iceland – Chasing the Northern Lights

One of the reasons we chose to visit Iceland during the time of year we did was to see the Northern Lights. A couple weeks before we left, I saw this article from The Lonely Planet about a new Northern Lights viewing centre just outside […]

Iceland – South Shore Drive

Iceland – South Shore Drive

We meant to get en route on our drive down Iceland’s highway 1 down to Vik early. But not all best laid plans come into fruition. The night before, we fell asleep at like, 9pm due to a combination of not sleeping on our red-eye […]

Iceland – Visiting Reykjavik

Iceland – Visiting Reykjavik

What inspired us to take a trip to the Northern-most capital in the world on the verge of winter? Not sure. I wanted to take an island vacation, and this is where we ended up. In reality it was always a dream to visit Iceland. […]

All of the things we ate at The Ex 2019

All of the things we ate at The Ex 2019

The Canadian National Exhibition, more affectionately known as “The Ex” is akin to State Fairs in the USA. There’s wild food, carnival games, rides I mostly refuse to go on, and so much more. It takes place over the last few weeks of the summer […]
