Finding Myself at 65°N – The Solo Icelandic Winter Adventure: Day 7 Hanging Out On Sólheimajökull

Day 7 - January 2, 2020 Ever been somewhere so windy that if someone opens the front door to the guesthouse, your ears pop from the pressure difference? No?

December 29th - Day 3... The wind was whipping when I awoke, still way before anyone else in the guesthouse (still hadn't figured out to just sleep in).  The appeal of Iceland is it's natural beauty, which is hard to see when it's COMPLETELY DARK, so I knew I didn't want to get too early… Continue reading Finding Myself at 65°N – The Solo Icelandic Winter Adventure Day 3: Living My Best Life on Snæfellsnes
