I am so glad and grateful that I had the chance to go out of my travelling comfort zone and see the true magic of this spot. Not only as a very simple tourist, but much more, like a traveler who respects and loves to discover new locations.
Iceland will under no circumstances be a stranger nation to me. I loved this nation in such a exclusive way that I bet you will as well. By way of my travel diary and my expertise there, you are going to really feel like you’ have been there as well.
MY TRIP TO ICELAND – DAY two
TASTING THE Regional BEER
The initial day at Iceland started with a go to at a modest, regional, beer making organization, named Ölvisholt Microbrewery.
This is a loved ones and respectful organization which is mainly primarily based on the regional hand production. The loved ones warmly welcomed us, provided us their beer and ready a meal for us with standard meals -salmon was the king of the plates-.
Going to A Regional ANIMAL FARM
Iceland is well-known for supporting its personal goods and that is why the locals are so connected to the nature of the island. For instance, there are numerous households who maintain their personal farms. That was not strange to me at all, as I grew up in the countryside as well, but it was so remarkable that I had the likelihood to get to know their habits and day-to-day activities.
Quick-HIKING AT ÞINGVELLIR NATIONAL PARK
The day went on with a pit-cease at Þingvellir or Thingvellir National Park, which is dated considering the fact that 1930 and is on the Planet Heritage list of UNESCO. The oldest parliament of the planet is also situated there constructed by the Vikings and named Althingi.
This national park has also been made use of as a landmark for the well-known series Game of Thrones it was Arya Stark’s and her companion Sandor Clegane’s place, throughout their trip.
You ought to “stop and stare” at this remarkable park and in addition to, it is vital for these who adhere to the Golden Circle route in Iceland. We also stopped at Davíðsgjá spot for a quick stroll and of course… a lot of pictures! Wonderful but quickly, mainly because the following one particular was a lot improved!
THE GULLFOSS WATERFALL
Subsequent cease: the well-known and beautiful Gullfoss or Golden Waterfall.
Its wild beauty and exclusive place, protects the entire scenery from the humans. No words can describe what you really feel at its initial sight. I just try to remember pondering how distinctive particular person I would be If I had not the likelihood to travel and meet this spot as properly.
The Golden waterfall has a “golden” beauty and you can simply access it. But, the most particular about it is that you can take pleasure in this view from above -which is not so widespread with waterfalls-. You ‘ve got the likelihood to see all of this flowing water operating in front of you!
ENJOYING A BLOODY MARY / TOMATO FARM
And now you happen to be in all probability pondering… “what is so particular about a tomato farm?” There is a thing particular even though at Friðheimar farm, which we visited later this afternoon. The loved ones who owned the farm has adopted the widespread, effective organization slogan of Iceland “we assistance our personal goods” and has definitely managed to transform a very simple greenhouse to a robust organization. Iceland is not dependent on imports but on the enforcement of its personal organization sources.
This loved ones “accompanied” the greenhouse with a restaurant, which only served tomato-primarily based dishes and even made beer with tomato getting the most important ingredient of it. Bloody Mary was our welcome drink and we have been positive that this would be the way to meet their superb tomato planet!
THE VIKINGS DINNER
I could actually create thousands of articles, speak about or even upload million videos of this Vikings Dinner.
The Vikings prayer was how they welcomed us, in a entirely filmic scenery. No cultery required, just some wooden spoons, like the standard Vikings ones. This meal was a life expertise and I currently really feel moved by the memory of it.
The second day of the trip ended in this great way. #couplegoals
