Best Travelgrams of 2014

No, I can't believe it's already the end of the year. 2014 has been one wild adventure. I let the wanderlust take over me -- saw the world, met its people, and tasted a plethora of foods. Though, the year is ending, my journey is just beginning.…

Video: Iceland Travel Diary

This was one unforgettable trip! You've seen the photos, now here's the video :)

Reykjavik Highlights

We are reaching the end of my journey in Iceland. Here, I'm just recollecting some of the memories (mostly food related) in the capital city of Reykjavik. This was our home base for all the adventures out into the rest of the island. Reykjavik…

Gullfoss + Geysir – Golden Circle

The first exploratory excursion we took was The Golden Circle tour with IGTours. With a delightfully funny guide and handful of people, we took off to see the Iceland outside of Reykjavik. Along the way, we stopped to see Icelandic horses (which…

Snowy Check-In

Right after relishing in the waters of the Blue Lagoon, we headed over to the capital city, Reykjavik, and got ourselves settled at the Loft Hostel Iceland. I've never stayed in a hostel before, and Iceland was full of them as well as quaint…
