Ask me about nomad life here

Obligatory Gregory Alan Isakov:

65.8147° N, 16.3846° W

The farthest North I’ve yet been in this wandering life. Deadly near the Arctic Circle. In early August, we drove through the centre of Iceland on the F35 to get to the North of Iceland, and that high latitude at Dettifoss. It is only open for a short window in the summer, and can only be accessed with a 4×4 even at the best of times. Unfortunately, I didn’t take so many pictures on the beautiful drive down.

It is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. One of the most idyllic. It reminds me of my native Colorado, Lord of the Rings, the Hyperion Series, and the Icelandic Sagas all at once. Wide empty places are where I long to be, even though in my late 20s I’ve found myself more often than not in two of the biggest cities on Earth (Seoul and Shanghai) and the two most populated countries (India and China).

The drive down to Akureryri was all that traveling should be.
