Things have been quite eventful this month already. One week ago I celebrated my birthday in the Caribbean. It was my first trip ever to that part of the world and I had been looking forward to making it for a very long time already. Read More »

The first tour I booked was Horseback Riding at Laxnes Horse Farm. I had always imagined how awesome it would be to finally ride a proper Icelandic Pony in its country of origin. Even though it was around 5 degrees Celsius during the day, the ride was a blast and I can only recommend it!
