Welcome to our adventure!
In early 2018, my girlfriend Claire was prepared to buy me tickets to wherever I wanted as part of my 30th birthday celebrations. Iceland had been somewhere I'd wanted to explore since I had completed a round the world trip back in 2013. However, I entered the decision with trepidation, as our previous outdoor holidays together had ended up falling short of expectations, and I was wondering if I was done with the whole 'travelling' thing.
Nonetheless, after plenty of research, we drew up an itinerary that would suit what both of us wanted to get out of the experience, and we embarked on Thursday 5th April to Reykjavik with quiet excitement. This website is a homage to the time that we spent in Iceland. For two city-dwellers to take to the elements like we did was a credit to the wonderful locals and the unparalleled natural landscape. Saying that, the conditions weren't dissimilar to Newcastle Upon Tyne!
If you are interested in reading about our trip in some detail, try the 'Journal' part of the site. This is split into three key parts. However, there is also a ‘Trip Gallery’ if you are only interested in seeing the photos (all of which were taken by us). Finally, if you wish to get in touch with us, please refer to the 'Contact' tab.
