    Iceland – a post about fire and ice, hate and love

    Iceland – a story about fire and ice, hate and love As you may have seen on my social media channels, I recently visited my beloved Iceland for the tenth time. I was eager to introduce my boyfriend to this special destination for the first time and therefore decided to combine a vacation with a work trip. Because after all, if you work in the travel industry, it is rare that you really are completely on vacation as I always see a story or a picture moment in happenings.

    Hiking to Reykjadalur Hot Springs in Iceland

    Hiking to Reykjadalur Hot Springs in Iceland – a great day out! Quite a lot of people who go to Iceland, immediately rush over to the Golden Circle and its sights. Which is perfectly understandable because those natural wonders you will get to see there are not something you can see in just any country. The geysers and waterfalls are just stunning and deserve all the attention they get. However if you go just a little bit further than the Golden Circle, you will find a little valley called Reykjadalur (meaning Smokey Valley) that will surprise you with its outstanding beauty. It’s truly one of Iceland’s scenic gems if you…
