In the minds of the average inhabitant of the western world, Iceland appears as an icy land, eternally covered in snow, where polar bears run around and vodka freezes outdoors. Meanwhile, the winters in Iceland are much milder than those in Poland!
At least in terms of temperature. The ubiquitous w
Recently, my activity on Steem has clearly decreased, which was caused by my energy being oriented towards other things, and in my drafts on Steempeak there are several posts started, which I can't really get down to. Recently I was (finally) visited by a bunch of friends, with whom (finally) I cou
Late September. Summer seems to be just begun in Iceland, finally the sun came out, after a cold, cloudy and rainy summer. I board a touring minibus of a big American tourist corporation. As a hotel employee who sells trips to guests visiting Iceland, I can try some of them for free. It doesn't ent
Our first night in the Icelandic western fjords. We woke up without a hurry. Quick breakfast, yerba mate and brief drive to the second hot springs this trip. Before me, Przemek and Martyna another few days of admiring the nature of one of the most deserted corners of Iceland.
Having arrived at th
I met Przemek and Martyna at a Facebook's group of Polish hitchhikers who are currently staying in Iceland. Przemek announced his willingness to go to Westfjords and was looking for people willing to join the trip. Not long before I've visited a piece of the region, but most of this depopulated are

My journey on the Icelandic road no. 1 - Þjóðvegur 1 - took place in May. A lot of time has passed and it's high time to finish the series! During this summer I visited quite a lot of places in Iceland, which are also waiting to be described. So let's go back to "the one"!

Another day of exploring what Iceland has to offer nearby it's Þjóðvegur 1, the main national road around the whole island. This time, together with Chris, whom we met two days earlier, we discover the charms of northern Iceland up to the second largest city in the country - Akureyri.
I was faced
The third day of my trip around the island greeted me with wonderful weather. One that I have not seen for many, many weeks. I felt underneath that it was going to be a pleasant day, perfect to see what the main road of Iceland - Þjóðvegur 1 - has to offer, this time in its eastern part, also calle
I opened my eyes. The night was chilly, but not such as to not make me sleep comfortable. I was putting away my tent in this black wilderness accompanied by a small rain and a mad wind. Black clouds were above me and I knew very well that the second day of my trip on Þjóðvegur 1, the most important
Þjóðvegur in Icelandic means "a national road". It is also called Hringvegur - "a round road". This 1,332-kilometre section is simply the national route no. 1, which surrounds the whole island. Recently I hitchhiked Þjóðvegur 1, so I these are my experiences and memories from that travel!
