Iceland My Travels

A Girl’s Rough Travel to Iceland

How a Girl  Survives Iceland ?


Travelling to Iceland  through active volcanoes, pristine waterfalls,forceful yet unpredictable geysers , lava fields, hidden icebergs, sleet, the cold  can be somewhat challenging. The diversity of  landscape is so breathtaking, this country of fire and ice gently eased me through nature’s phenomena.

 Travelling to Iceland now is more expensive.  In October 2015 ,tourists were scarce, prices were reasonable. I did not know what to expect, I just went with an open mind.  Iceland is one of my favourite destination I discovered, a hidden mysterious treasure .

Book your tours through Grey Line Iceland  Every day I was faced with a marvel of nature’s surprises. Realised how tiny we actually in this world.

Icelandic People 

 Iceland is a small, safe country where people are warm and friendly. In addition, there are also particular ways of life  we are not familiar with. Children are kept outside in a cafe in their baby stroller.This small country , Iceland, where everyone knows each other, someone is  keeping an eye on the infant . Icelanders truly  look out for each other .

This is a fact, that a deep sense of community creates happiness and peace within a nation. I could not agree more. This is the essence that embodies Iceland and other Scandinavian countries. 


Did I not mention my newfound obsession? 


The Blue Lagoon


The Blue Lagoon is a geothermal spa located in  Reykjanes Peninsula, although very touristy I decided to leave it for the last day, just before my way to the airport. Icelanders love their hot tubs, a tradition that is far back from the viking days, part of an Icelander lifestyle. There are many of these across Iceland, I chose Blue Lagoon .

 After a rough way through Iceland, what better way to unwind, relax and take in this mindful moment. Thank you Iceland for this wonderful trip.
