Road trip around Snæfellsnes Peninsula, West Iceland
[Guest Blog] What I’m about to describe should not be attempted ever again: The Snæfellsnes Peninsula in a day. It deserves a week at least, perhaps a year, probably a lifetime. To do it in a day is ridiculous but that’s all we allowed ourselves in our dash around Iceland. Karina and I woke in total darkness at 8am, carb-loaded at the breakfast buffet, and then put on our essential Icelandic winter-gear – our swimsuits – under multiple warmer layers. We imagined ourselves stopping at hot springs around the way but when we cross referenced our research with the local knowledge of our host, it seemed we were out of luck.

Iceland ideas via Pinterest
When traveling to a country for the first time I'm assuming people research and plan their trip ahead, at least I do. If you are a spontant traveler who doesn't like to plan then I think you might still like to read this post! Anyway, I usually search online when planning what places to see & do for each country I visit. So I must admit that Pinterest is a great tool to help with researching and planning. If you are not familiar with Pinterest then click here for information. I’ve gathered over 3K pins divided into 58 boards.
