The Blue Lagoon is nice, but even better is hiking an hour into the mountains to the hot spring river Reykjadalur. The water comes out boiling in the mountains but by the time it gets to this part of the mountain it’s cooled to 105. The higher you walk up the hotter the water gets. #reykjadalur#iceland#icelandic#hotsprings#hotspring
---> Swipe Right for Video ---> Wild Icelandic horses are the only breed of horse allowed in Iceland, this makes the breed free of diseases and live long lives. With no native predators they aren't prone to kick or buck and can survive the harsh climate in Iceland. One of my new favorite animals especially after riding one. #icelandichorse#iceland#icelandichorses
Today marks the last day of my one year of traveling. I'm sitting at the Reykjavik airport about to catch my flight to LAX and really can't put into words when I think about my last year. When I took off last October I always envisioned ending in Iceland under the Northern lights. After some nights of rain and a snow blizzard (which was really cool) it was our last night of the road trip, the sky cleared and the aurora lights danced. It is something surreal to see and seemed liked natures grand finale for the end of my trip.
I'm headed back to Cali to regroup for a couple months and prepare for a project I'll be taking off to do in December that I'm looking forward to sharing with everyone soon. I'm excited to not having to unpack and repack my bags every couple days as I did for the last year. There's so much I've learned over the last year that I plan to document one way or another but the one thing I always look back to is the night in Austin, Texas that I made up my mind to quit my current life and take off traveling. Thanks to all my friends, family and co-workers who all encouraged me to do it. If I hadn't of made the decision that night I would have regretted it the rest of my life. Always fear regret, not failure. #iceland#icelandic#northernlights#aurora#auroraborealis#gh5
Took a break from the camper van and ventured off the ring road over an hour to a remote fishing village of 80 people where we stayed at the Blabjorg Guesthouse that had a hot tub on the sea. #iceland#icelandtravel#icelandic
