I had the chance to participate in a beautiful environmental project called Enviajarme. Josue (the founder) is a young man, passionate about nature and with an incredible vision to make this world a better place. I was amazed to watched how more than 100 people gathered together to walk in a beautiful mountain and clean all the way up to the top.
As I told you in a recent post, I’m a control freak to organize a trip when I have limited time to travel and I know it can be chaotic if we do not have a proper guide to pull it of. So I want to show you what I do, a method that has worked for me every time so I can have a trip with less complications.
I came back to my tico paradise following my heart after spending a lot of months outside and literally going around the world. Returning was a strong learning process, just like traveling. Returning to what I considered my home challenged me, taught me that I have fears that I didn't know existed, that I have too many things to work on and improve
It’s no secret to anyone that Iceland's climate is unpredictable, changing and extreme. It’s impressive and adaptable nature make this country a natural paradise and at the same time a risk if you are not prudent.
Driving around the ring road through Iceland is undoubtedly an adventure. In winter it isn't popular to travel in camper because the weather is extreme. Still, it is the best time to witness the northern lights because of the long periods of darkness. We made this trip for 19 days in a camper van during March and April when, in theory, seasons are changing from winter to summer (I say in theory because the icelandic weather is a box of surprises: we drove in snowfall with incredible winds and we had total summer days). We drove around the whole coast of Iceland and we were lucky enough to find almost all roads open, resulting in an incredible experience. I want to share some tips that can be useful if you decide to travel this way and know the wonderful landscapes on your own!
In search of warmer lands we went to Seville, historic capital of Andalusia, and without planning it the first thing we heard at the airport was that we arrived just for the last three days of the April fair.
Traveling to Iceland was my dream for 4 years. I wanted to feel as one in those incredible landscapes, to see the northern lights shining in the sky, to be amazed by the power of nature because I knew that the climate there was totally unpredictable.
