Happy Monday friends!

I hope everyone is having a great day and looking forward to the upcoming summer weather!

Today I’m here to let you in on THREE very exciting things happening lately.


Exciting news, our next travel destination is Georgia!

I’m not talking about the State in the South of USA, I’m talking about the COUNTRY!

News flash: Georgia is GORGEOUS!!! (See photo below – are you serious with those mountains?!?!)

We leave in TWO WEEKS (May 31st) and will be taking a 6 week trip through Georgia, Armenia, Bosnia, Croatia, and Netherlands.


I will still be posting Iceland content and videos, but definitely mixing it up with some posts about these beautiful places – I can’t wait to share them with you all!



I’ve been spending a lot of time updating the Ring Road eBook and I think you are going to LOVE it!!!

This isn’t a small update, this is a MAJOR update with the addition of several pages and a better map!

You’ll find 17 NEW PAGES including:

  • Regions of Iceland
  • Daylight hours
  • Animals + wildlife
  • Festivals + holidays
  • Gas stations + pump use
  • Road signs
  • Northern lights
  • Ring Road info

AND I’ve also updated the interactive Google map, so there’s more detail per stop. Longer descriptions, more photos, amenities, and accessibility info now included!

*for those of you who have already purchased the ebook, check your email, I’ve already sent you the updated version 😉

    I’m so excited that you’re running a #giveaway for the book! I’m trying to plan a group trip for August 2018, and if I win, I’m hoping the book will have some great insights for group trips to Iceland. Or if it’s all about solo or duo travel, then I’m sure that’s just as great! Thanks!

    Love the give away, especially since we’ll be in Iceland in August for our wedding and honeymoon. Your blog and Facebook posts / group has helped us a lot already with planning our trip. Super grateful for that! And how cool is it that you’re coming to the Netherlands (just liked Amber mentioned). That’s where we live! If you’re visiting the south of the Netherlands, make sure you put Maastricht on your list. 🙂 #giveaway
