Celebrating National Day in Egilsstadir

The Icelandic National Day is celebrated on June 17. I happened to be in Egilsstadir on that day. There were celebrations, a parade and a small concert in the park located on Tjarnarbraut Street. I was happy to witness Icelandic’s patriotism. Later that day, I was really motivated to go to Hengifoss, so I started walking into that…

Mystical Glacial Lagoon – Jökulsarlon

Jökulsárlón is a glacial lagoon, located in South-East Iceland, formed by the melting of Breiðamerkurjökull, which is one of the glacier tongues of Vatnajökull, Iceland’s largest glacier.

Vík and surroundings

If you’re travelling around Iceland via route 1, you will pass by the small city of Vik. Even though it’s known to be Iceland’s rainiest place, you must definitely stop there for at least one night, so you’ll have the time to explore Dyrholaey, Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach and cliffs that overlook the city. I followed a trail, accessible to…

Mekong Delta, Vietnam

If you plan a trip in southern Vietnam, you cannot miss the dynamic villages and waters of the Mekong Delta! I booked a 3-day trip to Mekong Delta with Sinh Tourist (departure from Ho Chi Minh City). That’s a great option if you’re alone and you don’t feel comfortable riding solo on Vietnam roads.
