Steem-Hikers were formed at the beginning of 2018 as an ambitious project of two Steemians, @saunter and @ceybiicien. It was supposed to be a blog reporting on our hitchhiking trip around the world, as well as preparations for it. However, after a year and a half of reporting on our adventures in I
We have already said goodbye to Iceland, but there is one more adventure to share. In April I was visited by my dear friends Wojtek and Barbara, who co-creates the blog Gone With the Frame. They brought along something that delighted my soul immensely - three analog cameras and nine films. Their arr
It's hard to believe how fast time passes. We came to Iceland on March 20, 2018, without a plan, without accommodation, without a job and with a tight budget. Aim? To accumulate funds for the hitchhiking journey of our lives. In our introduction post we mentioned that the beginning of our set out i

þetta reddast - or, everything will work out somehow
This Icelandic saying slowly becomes part of my life philosophy and although I believe that in the end everything will work out somehow, we will set off on a journey reporting our progress here, writing another post unfortunately requires a bit
Together with @ceybiicien we met in Gdańsk, Poland on March 20th, just a few hours before our departure to Iceland. We barely met at the Gdańsk Wrzeszcz platform, and already panicked that we wouldn't manage to get on the flight - it turned out that I took the hour of baggage check-in as the hour o
So it's happening, we are about to fly to Iceland! The land of Sigur Rós, Björk, wonderful raw landscapes, waterfalls, geysers, glaciers and volcanoes! On March 20th we fly away from Gdansk, Poland and a few hours later we land at the airport in Keflavík. We bought a one way ticket
