It’s that time of the year again. I’m already starting to plan my 2017 travels (three trips booked so far, two on the way)… and I’m looking back over the places I’ve seen and the people I’ve met over the last year. It wasn’t until I sat down to write this post that I really … More My 2016 Travel Story
So I started April in a pretty great place (literally)… Iceland! I’d always wanted to visit and it definitely met my expectations.

We got the bulk of what we wanted to see done in … More 24 hours in Reykjavik

The route seemed pretty safe … More The Golden Circle, Iceland
