Baby It’s Cold Outside – South Iceland

Baby It’s Cold Outside – South Iceland

Taking the bus through south Iceland We have to say: Iceland is made for traveling by car. Taking the bus is possible, but it’s complicated and you need more time. And some places are just off limits then. And roadside stops at scenic places, too. We nevertheless gave it a trial. Only for a couple of days, in order to get the fastest possible way from West to East Iceland. We had planned a stop in Vik for two nights,…

No Night Fever on Disco-Island ?

No Night Fever on Disco-Island ?

No Night Fever on Disco-Island The name Disco-Island might give you false expectations. There is definitely no night fever to be found.

There is a supermarket, a local market where hunters offer their daily catch, a restaurant, a grill, a café, a very beautiful small church and a cute little museum which is worth a visit. There is even a…
