Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 12: Into the Northeast aka The End of the World

Iceland Day 12 - September 12, 2018 If the evening of Day 6 was dedicated to going "into the wild" in the very much wild Westfjords, than Day 12 can be summarized as going "to the end of the world" as we'd travel from the Mývatn area to the tippy top of Iceland in the… Continue reading Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 12: Into the Northeast aka The End of the World

Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 11: From trolls to midges (Tröllaskagi to Mývatn)

September 11, 2018 Well friends, day 11 reminded us that indeed our rain-free luck of the start of our clockwise journey around Iceland had indeed run dry (ha!) as rain and clouds greeted us in Hofsós when we peered out the windows of Carl.  Foregoing breakfast, we headed to the Hofsós town swimming pool, which… Continue reading Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 11: From trolls to midges (Tröllaskagi to Mývatn)

Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 10: Westfjords to Tröllaskagi, and all the churches in between

Iceland Day 10 - September 10, 2018 Our late bedtime the night before did us no favors when the alarm went off bright and early in the morning.  Day 10 would be our longest driving day of the trip as we would leave the Westfjords and jaunt across northern Iceland, spending over six hours driving… Continue reading Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 10: Westfjords to Tröllaskagi, and all the churches in between

Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 9: Soaking up the last of the Westfjords

Iceland Day 9 - September 9, 2018 Day 9 marked the near halfway point to our grand Icelandic adventure, and one of our first days to really "sleep in," which was a nice treat.  There wasn't a lot on our itinerary for our last full day in the Westfjords aside from a couple of cafes… Continue reading Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 9: Soaking up the last of the Westfjords

Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 8: Dynjandi, Ísafjörður, and everything in between

Iceland Day 8 - September 8, 2018 Dynjandi, Dynjandi, Dynjandi day!!! I announced when the alarm awoke us in sleepy little Bíldudalur.  Proving that I was never sick of seeing waterfalls, enthusiasm was high for today's plans, which included a hot pot soak for breakfast, one giant waterfall, and some relaxing in the first "major… Continue reading Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 8: Dynjandi, Ísafjörður, and everything in between

Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 6: Chasing more waterfalls, petting dogs, chilling on a ferry, and hello, Westfjords!

Iceland Day 6 - September 6, 2018 Every day waking up in Iceland was the best day ever, but some days were more "best" than others, and day 6 was shaping up to be one of these days!  You know why?  One word:  Westfjords!  (And to be technical, Vestfirðir, which is the Icelandic word.) The Westfjords… Continue reading Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 6: Chasing more waterfalls, petting dogs, chilling on a ferry, and hello, Westfjords!

Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 5: Sunny Snæfellsnes

Iceland Day 5 - September 5, 2018 We awoke early from our slumber, knowing a big day was up ahead.  After scooping up our now dry clothes from the bathroom (see yesterday's post about laundry...), we quickly ate breakfast and hit the road under cloudy skies, destination: the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. Snæfellsnes is often referred to… Continue reading Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 5: Sunny Snæfellsnes
