Coffee With A View ( кофе с видом, kaffi með útsýni )

0905191955a

Enjoying a few peaceful moments in my cabin in Reynivellir, Höfn í Hornafirði before venturing off to view black sands and glaciers. This was my first stop on the ring road after departing Reykjavík, and I spent a couple of nights here relaxing before continuing along the road for the next long stretch to East Iceland.

University of Reykjavík

Enjoying a latte during my last few hours in Reykjavík before flying into Toronto to return home and start to plan which programs I’ll be applying to at the University of Reykjavík. I know I want to obtain my Masters degree but I have awhile before I will be ready for that, so I am thinking of studying Icelandic in the meantime. The program doesn’t begin until the fall and I would like to be there sooner but we will see where more research leads me!

Coffee and Expat Files for Breakfast

It’s another one of those mornings (and by that I mean 1:30pm) where I have been working on a giant mug of coffee for three hours while sifting through residence permit options, self-employment regulations, programs which I’m eligible for at the university, etc. The pieces are coming together slowly but surely. I knew this was what I wanted 12 years ago, it’s time to set the distractions aside and make this work.

Tamron SP 150-600mm lens for Iceland

I just rented the Tamron SP 150-600mm lens to bring along on our vacation, and for the purpose of working on my project of bird photography in Iceland and Norway. We are staying in Vestmannaeyjabær for a couple of days and I am hoping there will still be some adult puffins left but either way I will be looking for pufflings! I cannot wait to see the many birds around both countries, and can’t wait to be able to shoot 600mm.
