PODCAST 004: Travel to Reykjavik ft Sigrun de Almeida

Episode 4 from the podcast sessions is a really excited one for me! I not only met an amazing human being but learned a lot about a country I want to visit. ICELAND! DID YOU KNOW that locals do not pay electricity?! I had a chat with Sigrun- a local tour guide. We talked about what you can do in Iceland, WHEN to visit and more useful tips and tricks. Enjoy!

  1. Whale watching would be so amazing! Thanks for the extra information about the places mentioned in the episode. 🙂

      1. The thing about travelling is you will always be there “at the wrong time” for something… but your job is to work out what you are “at the right time” for, and then go hard out to have the best experience you can. Like you and the Northern Lights in Alaska, my friend. It would have been great to see, but they’re still waiting there for next time 🙂 And I bet your Alaskan experience was amazing despite this. Cheers.

        1. Oh, yes. It was a great Alaskan experience. Yes, I’m a bit sorry I didn’t see them but that wasn’t the purpose of the journey anyway. You said it so right: it is our responsibility to make sure we take the most of our trips and not leave things for chances.
