Vancouver Adventure 2017 Part 1

Nearly 2 years ago, I embarked on the furthest solo trip ever. To Vancouver and Seattle. A 12,800km journey from home.

The country was largely spared from the violence of overthrowing the regime and... Continue Reading →

I miss Iceland

Two weeks in, and I already miss Iceland. Kirkjufell. One of the most iconic mountain in the Snæfellsnes peninsula.

There is something magical about this island, this country, the... Continue Reading →
