Enjoying coffee outside


Sometimes, even when it’s cold  – it’s more fun to enjoy your coffee and a snack outside. Our girl was sleeping in her pram and we decided to bring coffee time outside, so we would hear her and could stay in the fresh air a little bit longer. Good thing we have an outdoor kitchen aka our van-kitchen. We can place the gas cooker where ever we want to and ready is the coffee. Plus – Continue reading “Enjoying coffee outside”

Around Iceland – Hiking Stórurð


This hike was amazing! Not only because we had good weather for once, no – the goal of the day was Stórurð “the giant boulders”! No need to explain the excitement of the husband. Giant boulders! The boulders lie below a small glacier next to Dyrfjöll mountains and with a lot nice clear blue ponds. The hike itself is wonderful, but relaxing next to those boulders is just awesome. We even (ok, mostly I did, super badass) took a dip into one of those pond – extremely cold. Maybe one of the coldest dip I took! And the husband a lot of fun climbing up the boulders! If you are in East Iceland – go and hike Stórurð! Continue reading “Around Iceland – Hiking Stórurð”

Around Iceland – Hiking with Osprey


For hiking in Iceland we were super excited to test the Osprey carrier! My Grandpa carried me in one of those up the mountains when I was a child – so we just had to do same with our little one. And she liked it very much! What can I say? The Osprey carrier is super comfy, has extra space for lunch or rain clothing and even a little mirror, which you can use to see what your child is doing. Or for making fun! Since Iceland I used the carrier for hikes, but also little walks, where I was alone – means no extra person with an extra backpack! Totally works, so much space and I think a big bonus is, that you can adjust the length of the backpack with one move for small people to big ones. So this one we will use quite often! 😉

Around Iceland – Bouldering Vestrahorn & ON A Black Beach

 


We really wanted to go bouldering and climbing in Iceland. In our imagination we would just stop when we see some rocks and try to go bouldering. Yeah… we didn’t expect the weather to be that bad. So this was more or less the only time we went bouldering. The first spot was, close to Skaftafell, on a black beach, pretty random, but quite nice. The second spot and probably the most famous one for bouldering in Iceland was Vestrahorn. Extremely scenic, but we thought it was quite hard to find hard boulders. Nevertheless we highly recommend going there – even if you are not into bouldering – this view and this beach are something special!  Continue reading “Around Iceland – Bouldering Vestrahorn & ON A Black Beach”

WA – Hiking Frenchman Peak


Before you come to the famous beach ‘Lucky Beach’ you drive past the Frenchman Peak. The 3km hike is quite nice – you’re walking mostly on rock and before coming up the peak you walk by a huge cave, which is worth going in/down. If you hike a lot, this one is very easy and the view is very nice from up there… if you have time, do it! Going afterwards to the Lucky Beach for dip into the water might be the perfect ending.
