Cloud of Ash| Icelandic web series

A new comedy web series about Icelanders and the tourists who come here. This series is sarcastic but pretty funny if you ask me. The series follows Atli and Brogan who work together at a puffin store in Reykjavík. It's maybe a bit over the top but that is what makes it funny. Click here to see their Facebook like page and here to follow them on twitter.   

5 reasons you should visit Iceland

1. The weather here has some crazy personality. One day everything is fine and the next it takes the roofs off houses and is trying to steal your car.  2. It doesn't matter when you visit, the nature is always beautiful. The ice caves are so beautiful and when the light is just right it's like a different world. You can book an ice cave tour with a guide who takes you to this unique natural wonder. 3. Taste weird food. I don't know about many places that sell Icelandic traditional food but I once went to this place called Le bistro and they had a brennivín shot and sour shark bites on ther

The coffee culture in Iceland

This is only how I experience the coffee culture in Iceland so just keep that in mind while reading this, Thank you :)  ---------------------------------------------  I am not a huge coffee drinker, but I do enjoy a good cup of coffee every once in a while. Last year I started working at a coffee shop in Reykjavík and it made me love the art of coffee and tea even more. But here in Iceland it isn't that big of a deal if you drink coffee or not. Every work place has its coffee machine and people just drink the coffee or they don't. But what I want to talk about is the culture of going

Where to take the best selfie in Iceland?

What else to do in Iceland than to take the greatest selfies of your life. Or just the most epic instagrams you have ever taken. Photo from Justin Timberlakes instagram The landscape here is so beautiful, it is just kind of hard to take an awful picture here. But where to take the best selfie?  A lot of people take pictures in Harpa. It is kind of the perfect place to take a good picture at, no matter what time of the year or day. It is always the perfect brightness to take a good picture in there.  My favourite picture I have taken in Harpan has to be this one. It's so alive and

''The best decision I have ever made!!''  ''I am definitely going next year'' The only things I have ever hoard people say about airwaves is that it's the greatest.

My take on the Secret solstice festival 2014

Secret solstice is an Icelandic festival that features over a hundred artists. It was held for the first time this summer. In the summer there is sunlight 24 hours of the day and that is the theme of the festival, the Icelandic summer solstice. The festival was on June 20th-22nd. It was held in Laugardalurinn, that is in Reykjavík. The weather was not the greatest, it was just typical Icelandic summer weather which made the festival even more fun. The line up was great and everybody could find something that they liked.  My experience My experience was great. I had so much fun with frien

Sónar 2014

Þetta var geðveikt (This was awesome). This was definitely one of my favourite weekends EVER. If you are thinking about going to Sónar next year, than I say why THINK about doing something you can DO?  The days were all different, but still all really fun. My favourite day was Friday and my favourite performance was Major Lazer.  This was my first time going to Sónar and definitely not my last.  Thursday On Thursday I saw HE, Flog, GusGus, Tonik and Introbeats. There were a lot of people on the Gusgus concerts and what I heard was that they were great but I for some reason wasn't there.
