Each summer we go camping somewhere in Iceland. We live on the north coast so our route is either east or west. Most of the time we head east because there’s more variety and the landscape is more appealing. Still, we have a lot of places left to visit on the west coast and the west fjords. Many people travel with tents and that’s quite easy because the camping areas are usually fairly clean and […]
Summer is here and everything changes. The white cover that has been dominating our surroundings gradually diminishes and the spring starts to flourish everywhere. The sounds change aswell, birds chirping, motorbikes and lawnmowers make their mark on the summer sounds as well. This spring has been exceptionally pleasing, with +15°c almost every day. I even got a sunburn on my shoulders when we were paving around our new little flowerbed last weekend. +15° is brilliant […]

We did all the graphics, ads, website, social media and some print leaflets. […]

Our plan was to visit my inlaws for their annual new years eve feast, they live in a small town just up north, about 40 min drive on a good day. Monday was not a good day, it was pounding snow and rather windy. The roads were already […]
Tomorrow is New Years Eve. How exciting! We plan to be at my inlaws for their annual New Years Eve feast.

2012 was overall an amazing year for us. On our way home on Jan 1st from celebrating new years eve with the family, we were talking in the car of what exciting things we should do this year. And we decided to get married! Come on, we’ve been engaged for seven years, since the christening of our firstborn, and started dating in 1997. That’s like 15 years ago..! So it didn’t only seem logical but […]
