September 17, 2018 With all the rain the night before, I was scared to open my eyes in the morning in Vík, as I didn't want rain on our final day in the wilds of Iceland.  Once I pried them open, I realized I didn't hear rain, and that there was blue sky! Today had… Continue reading Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 17: Reynisfjara, a taste of Fimmvörðuháls, and all the waterfalls!

Iceland Day 14 - September 14, 2018 1°C (about 34°F) weather and freshly fallen snow on the mountains greeted us in the morning in Seydisfjörður.  Our coldest night in Iceland, and a good reminder that winter is rapidly on its way when you're at 65°N.

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 2 – The Golden Circle

Iceland Day 2 - September 2, 2018 The sound of hard rain on the camper van roof greeted me when the alarm went off in the morning.  This wasn't any sort of pleasant rain from the sounds of it, and I tried to remind myself not to panic as the weather in Iceland changes so… Continue reading Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland: Day 2 – The Golden Circle
