Paris Day 1 – The city after the terror

Eiffel tower french flag night Paris

This what I will write about the next weeks is an experience I will never forget in my life. I went to Paris exactly 1 week after the attack of the IS. The airplane of the flight Dublin – Paris was just half full. And I was able to smell the fear of the people inside the airplane. Even I was afraid, I didn’t know what I would find there. After the landing I got through the pass control and saw armed military everywhere in the airport immediately. I remembered that I read some days ago that they were planning …

Iceland day 5 – A strange day in the swimming pool

I woke up, had my daily routine and during my shower I was thinking about the falling star I saw last night when I was looking for the northern lights. Then I went towards Reykjavik. But first of all, I stopped at an Icelandic bakery to eat some typical pastry. I have to say, they are really good at baking pastry. When I left Selfoss, 2 women stopped for me. The Canadian women were so happy to give me a lift because it was one of their points written on their bucket list. It is part of the culture in Iceland to stop …

Iceland day 3 – A long way to the capital of the south

I woke up – which means no stone was rolling down the cliffs – and went with my tent to the house. My tent was very wet so I had to dry it.

Nothing felt better than the hot water running down my skin to clean it! Then I had breakfast, said goodbye to the French lads and went towards harbor. At the harbor …

Iceland day 2 – From Grindavik to Vestmannaeyjar

I was so glad that the night was over. It was so terrible that I was even struggling with myself, thinking about breaking it up and going back home. But then I realized that this was not an option at all. Instead I was packing all my stuff and went eastwards. I had no idea where I could go to, but I thought it could be nice to visit the hot springs in Krysuvik. It was a long way on a lonely road and the storm was still very strong. The landscape I was walking on looked amazing. It was …

Iceland day 1 – From Keflavik Airport to Grindavik

It was my first big trip after years! I started at the Belfast International Airport with Easyjet and went directly to Keflavik Airport. It was a short flight and I slept most of the time. When I arrived at the Airport I was a bit surprised, it was a really new and modern one. I went to the Passport Check and the woman asked where I was from and if this was my first trip to Iceland. When I told her it was, she looked a bit surprised. After getting out from the Airport I was already excited! The first …
