Heidi and Kubo Do Iceland – Day 17: Reynisfjara, a taste of Fimmvörðuháls, and all the waterfalls!

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!

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
