Every 10 days or so we find a hotel, to take a small break from the camper van. The funny thing is that by now I actually sleep much better in our van, but I […]
One of the amazing things in Iceland is how much water exists and how important it is. It shapes the country through rivers, rain and floods, in frozen form it forms Europe’s biggest glaciers and […]
