About

My name is Jeannie, and this is the story of how I sold everything I owned and moved to Iceland.

Travel has always been a big part of my life. Together my husband and I have traveled through North and Central America, Europe, and the South Pacific. I LOVE traveling. Travel makes me feel alive.

Let’s rewind a couple of years. We were living in the 3rd biggest city in America, the view out of our window was a Coca-Cola factory. I felt suffocated. I craved nature. A bike ride through the park or a weekend in the countryside didn’t satiate my need. I was unfulfilled and looking for a way out.

Enter our honeymoon.

We chose Iceland for our honeymoon for it’s raw and astounding nature. The diversity of landscapes makes it a destination like no other. Glaciers, waterfalls, volcanoes, northern lights.

I was hooked. I was in love with every minute of every day. I cried on the flight back to the states.

Iceland awakened something in me that I couldn’t ignore and would never be able to turn back from.

We both knew we wanted to return to Iceland, but this time on a permanent basis. We started the process of immigration, and one year later boarded a flight with nothing more than a one-way ticket and two suitcases.

When I was planning my trip to Iceland I had to search all over the internet to find what I was looking for. Where are the best spots to go? What should I pack? What is the weather like?

That’s why I created this blog. To put everything in ONE place. To help YOU discover all of the amazing places that Iceland has to offer.

I wished I could have asked people questions, so that’s why I created a Facebook group – a network of people to bounce ideas off of.

I’m here to help you plan the Iceland trip of your dreams.

Iceland is THE place of my dreams, and I want to share it with you!
