When it is freezing outside, there is nothing better than relaxing in a steaming pool while enjoying the phenomenal views of Iceland nature. That said, not all hot springs are created equal. So I’ve visited and rated 3 southern Iceland hot springs that can be visited and enjoyed. The Blue Lagoon – A Tourist’s Gathering. So if you are looking for local and authentic, this is not the place for you. That said, that does not mean that it is not an amazing experience. It is definitely worth a visit if you are staying in the capital. Unfortunately, it’s quite expensive, so keep that in mind. I would say that in order to get your money’s worth you should try and stay at least 2 hours. The good thing is that the pool is quite large with different sections, so you can float around and get a good soak. Also,…

Hey guys, so when I moved abroad to Spain (as a vegetarian), a lot of people asked me what I was going to eat. But have no fear there are definitely options for those who don’t eat meat. 1. Tortilla My number one choice was a hard one. For being known as the land of ham, you would think that most restaurants don’t have any vegetarian options. To the contrary, almost every single cerveceria has a dish called Tortilla. Now there are two options, Tortilla Española and Tortilla Francesa. The French one is a thin omelet, scrambled and usually put on a bocadillo (large sandwich). The other option is a hybrid of a quiche and a think omelet. Every restaurant makes it a little different. However, you can count on it having eggs, potatoes, and sometimes onions in it. For those who like their eggs overcooked like me, you might…

Hey guys, so you guys are planning, or thinking about traveling to Iceland, what a grand idea! I went there in April of 2018 and I am here to share all my knowledge with you guys. Enjoy! 1. Plan Ahead If you want to go to Iceland next weekend and you don’t have a ticket yet, well then you might be in trouble. Depending on the season, sometimes flights may book up to six months in advance, same with tours. So plan ahead and think about when you want to go. (http://winederlusting.com) 2. Budget Wisely Though the WOW airline flight might be deceivingly cheap, do not go to Iceland if you only have $5 to your name. It is a very expensive country, 4th in the world, so plan to come with a little padding in your wallet. Click here to check out my article about ways to save money…

And by living here I have had the chance and luck to be able to explore a large majority of the city. So, what I’ve done is I’ve ranked my top 10 places that I love. If you need any more suggestions shoot me an email! 1. Retiro Park Retiro, thus far, is one of my favorite places in the world. It is large enough that once you get inside, the sound of cars fades and the sound of the birds and people talking takes over. There are 5 suggestions I have for the park, First off, rent a bike. The park is large, and it would take hours to walk around the park completely. There is a bike station–right outside the park entrance is Puerta de Alcala. You…
