Thunderous Godadoss, Waterfall of the Gods into calming Akureyri, Iceland’s second city. With far less people than Reykjavik but still boasting 2 cinemas, tons of restaurants,  easy access to skiing and creative lava rock fencing, it’s more my deal. #godafoss #northerniceland #waterfallofthegods #waterfalls #akureyri #icelandtravel #iceland #skiiceland #lavarocks
Enchanting day @polarhestar, riding Icelandic horses on and off road. They have a fifth gate, which is a super smooth-like trot. The farm was beautiful, we had coffee and cake at the end of the ride, the dogs played dead to get the rubs. We started with three horses and then there were two as Thor ran off to reunite with his friend as the trainer was in the barn. #polarhestar #northerniceland #akureyri #farmlife #thefifthgate #tolt #horses #equestrian #iceland

Icelandic horsing around. I was riding “Bjork,” which seems wildly inappropriate, but Bjork means Tree, so it’s all good. #polarhestar #thefifthgate #icelandichorse #northfjords #horses #trailrides #octoberiniceland #akureyri #iceland
Winds on the down low today as we departed the Westfjords for the northernmost town in Iceland, lovely Siglufjordur. Amidst more seals and rock formations, we found more pastoral land lulled by our Game of Thrones audiobook, until we hit the single lane tunnel. #hvitserkur #northfjordsiceland #siglufjörður #kingofthenorth #gameofthrones #iceland
Low-keyish day with minimal white knuckling, Arctic Fox Museum, some smoked Puffin served by a very nice 80 yr old Icelandic lady, a pair of pants made out of human skin that makes you wealthy, maybe, and a tiny room with a view. #westfjords #iceland #arcticfoxmuseum #icelandicmuseumofwitchcraftandsorcery
Harbour seals! #westfjords
The Westfjords are gorgeous but the roads aren’t for the faint. Maybe we were still giddy from a third night of Northern Lights. After cheating death,  we gratefully eased into charming Isafjordur for rest and relaxation. And Thai food. #westfjordsiceland #isafjordur

Pretty, yep. Fun, nope. #westfjords #iceland
Today was beautiful, but what you don’t see are the 14% downgrades (@manderdent) on shoulderless roads. Thru snow and ice....And a GPS (“Carol Ann” we call her)with a very fucked up sense of humour. Or me trying not to throw up. Or @pam_susemiehl smiling like a madwoman the whole time.

Thrones mountain, shark museum (we ate fermented shark - goes down fine but repeats - and discovered  that the insides of some sharks contain Polar Bear), Black stone beach and this pond where a dragon lives. (allegedly)

What they didn’t teach us in elementary school— before “In 1492/ When Columbus sailed the ocean blue” to “discover” America - he came to an earlier embodiment of this church, in 1477, to talk to Icelanders whose ancestors HAD ALREADY BEEN THERE.  #iceland #vikings #seamen #history #snaefellsnespeninsula #screwyoutextbooks
In a classic case of “you had to be there.” - @pam_susemiehl and I rolled up to the base of Kirkjufell Mountain, featured prominently in Game of Thrones, and our Airbnb host nonchalantly informed us of a good chance for Northern Lights tonight. We headed out for a quick bite to wait, and there they were, shimmering like crazy glorious Nordic magic. We tore off towards a dark drive down the coast, the Big Dipper peaking thru, a shooting star here, the lull of the waves breaking there, the ‘Thrones mountain anchoring everything and the lights were so prominent that I was even able to (barely) capture them on my phone, something I was told was impossible to do. @pam_susemiehl will have better photos in the upcoming future as these barely show the scope and contrast. The world is truly a wild and wonderful place. (sigh). #auroraborealis #northernlights #grundarfjörður #iceland #happiness

20 of these goats starred on Game of Thrones. Including star goat “Casanova.” (None were harmed in real life by Drogon). #icelandicgoats #lactoseintolerant #iceland #farmlife #goats
First day back in Iceland. Like they were expecting us. Let the waterfall games begin! #iceland #lavawaterfall #gaypower #hraunfossar #barnafoss
Oslo is good lookin’ and full of surprises #museumday #oslo #oslopass #oldtownoslo #norskfolkemuseum
Flying from the Arctic Circle to a 3 Michelin Star restaurant today is all kind of baller so I’ll just have to pretend like this is a normal day. Still elevated. Maybe it was the smoked reindeer heart in browned butter. Thanks @pam_susemiehl and DM and @maaemo “#oslo #norway #esbenholmboebang #scandinaviatravels
