Hello World! My name is Katrín and I am half Icelandic, half Guyanese, Canadian raised, with a masters degree in Ecotourism and Icelandic history. I'm a professional world traveler and writer in my free time, but when I'm in Iceland working I guide hiking trips, teach yoga and organize mindfulness retreats from October to March called Me Time Iceland @metimeiceland. I can be your personalized guide for a range of hiking trails in and around Reykjavik, and teach yoga in my home studio or in the comforts of your own hotel/guest house. I'm super networked in the restaurant industry if you want wining and dining tips, and have led a few ridiculously fun bachelor(ette) parties in Reykjavik! Holla if I can help you with any of the above :)

ÓX, Reykjavík's Smallest & Finest Restaurant

My belly started grumbling from the moment I opened the website, but first from butterflies of excitement; "wind up your senses and start your journey" it explained, without any pictures or hints at what the food might be like. The faded map in the background is Iceland in the middle ages, with the mythical monsters that followed the times instructing us to "step... dive... play" and "consume" the culinary discovery. And that, is exactly what eating at ÓX is like - an adventure in an Iceland you've never imagined.

Norse Mythology, Gods and Goddesses

Who said Greek mythology was any better than Norse Mythology? The Vikings wrote about some bad ass Norse gods in the Icelandic Eddas and Sagas, and heres a list of the coolest Nordic gods and goddesses and the myths that made them famous. Thor / Þór Arguably the most famous, Thor is the brutish god of Thunder and lightning. He´s depicted as a powerful, protective, defensive warrior, sometimes seen as the most important of all gods, and related to the ideas of Hercules and Jupiter from Latin sources. He carries his hammer Mjölnir and wears his all-mighty belt Megingjörð to overcome all evil

Checking out Hornstrandir

Spending an entire summer in Iceland on horseback is always fun, but its still work. During my vacation days, its fun to roadtrip or boattrip and camp in the highlands or fjords or by the seaside.The Westfjords are a common destination in Iceland, especially for roadtrippers, hitchikers, and campers, but you’ve got to drop the car if you want to get to Hornstrandir. Hornstrandir is one of the most remote parts of Iceland, the furthest north-western part of the country, uninhabited and road-less. You can only get there by ferry boats – most of them leave from Isafjörður and depending on the

Gay Pride in Reykjavik

  Only in Iceland is Gay Pride weekend a family event, a celebration lasting 4 days, boasting the heterosexual mayor of Reykjavik as the gay pride parade drag queen.  Well, he was the drag queen once already, so this year he came dressed as a traditional Icelandic woman in 18th/19th Century costume throwing red roses at the audience. The two Hummers from Kiki's Queer bar rounded up the parade, which ended at the steps of Arnarholl. The only man I´ve ever lived with beside my father is my gay, German roomate of 4 years, and he was driving in the parade. One of my lesbain horseguiding fr

Reykjavik Music Mess

Iceland is known to have the most bands per capita in the world, making us one of the most music productive places in the world. It would only be natural for us to have a lot of music festivals too, since we need alot of shows to showcase all that Icelandic talent.    There's an up and coming festival in town called Reykjavik Music Mess, being held the last weekend in May. It's in its 3rd year running, and is an independently run music festival with 3 local music lovers behind it. I heard from Meg Horan that it was happening, and since I hadn't even heard of it, decided I had t

Gus Gus Crossfade debut at Sonar 2013

The Sonar Music festival happening in Reykjavik this weekend kicked off with a bang last night as Gus Gus premiered their latest single Crossfade.  Check out this video I took as Gus Gus started their set last night with a brand new song Crossfade. The lyrics ''do you remember the days.. when we started to crossfade'' are still stuck in my head, and the crowd definitely loved it too. Its kind of hard to see it, or watch the video at all, with the epileptic light flashing, but the song sounds great.  Its definitely in the spirit of Gus Gus, and sounds similar to their latest

Happy Valentine´s Day!

Today is a day for love and lovers, to share St. Valentine’s joy and all the cheesy romance one can possibly handle. St. Valentines Day in Reykjavik Valentines day is not really a big deal in Reykjavik, but at least a few lucky souls will be getting red roses or boxes of chocolates today. It’s a beautiful sunny day so maybe you’ll meet someone cute at the pool or walking their dog in the park. No one who wants to celebrate Valentines day should stay at home alone tonight, so just ask that person you’ve had your eye on for a while out on a date! If you´re taken... For all you lucky people

10 Things Travel Taught Me

I’ve been traveling a lot to many different places for the last few years (Iceland is still my favourite). After living out of a 10 kg 35 L backpack for an average of 6 months per year and ending up in a lot of strange places, here is a list of the 10 most valuable lessons travel has taught me (#10 is especially true for travellers to Iceland). #1. Time Management: I figured out flights can't wait for you if you're late, and they're expensive to re-book; I learned how to guess what time is by looking at the sun; and seeing London in 3 days is impossible, so save sleep for some o

Local Icelander vs. Tourist

How do you tell the difference between a local or a traveller when you’re in Iceland? Well, Icelanders don’t really need to be told how to do this, since we really have a knack for spotting our own kind when we walk down the street. Even before you hear someone speak, a person can really look Icelandic somehow, without really placing your finger on why… but, how they dress often gives them away. Here are a few key things to look for when spotting a local: Using an Umbrella When it rains in Iceland, as it often does, it seems natural to bust out your umbrella and stay dry underneath it. Bu

What languages do I speak & Where am I from?

When I was a child growing up in Iceland, I spoke Icelandic, perfectly and fluently. Then at age 8, after moving to Canada, I almost failed grade 2 because I couldn’t understand why no one would respond to my Icelandic. I eventually spoke English well enough to be comfortable speaking only English, but then forgot all my Icelandic. Then I learned French, a lot of French – one of the perks of emigrating to a bilingual country. I studied abroad, in France and Australia, majored in English, and came out a pretty good bilingual Canadian. My first, biggest, (quasi) solo travel experience was par
