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.
My cozy apartment from my last stay downtown. There are so many wonderful apartments on Airbnb located right in the city centre around all the best cafes!
Join Airbnb or become a host and rent your place to travelers and make extra income! 🙂 I exclusively rent from them, I’ve stayed in over a dozen places in Iceland among others and have only had great experiences.
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!
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.
Here are my final images from my recent trip!Eurasian magpie, Norway.

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.
