When you are meeting two wonderful people and you know they were meant to be on every life adventure together. Thank you, Julie and Ben! I like those places which we can visit and I love those people who we can meet. #westfjords #iceland #elopementiceland

Amongst all the places I’ve been to in Iceland so far, the old herrings factory in Djúpavík has the most interesting story. . In 1935 two entrepreneurs from Reykjavík decided to build the biggest fish factory of the country in the isolated area of the Westfjords. . If the bay was a strategic point (“vík” means “bay” and “djúpa” means “deep” in Icelandic) because the boats could get really close from shore, it was still hard to imagine that any successful business could start there. There was not even a road to get to Djúpavik. . But those guys found support from the bank of Sweden who agreed on a 4 years loan at the time. They reimbursed it in just 1... . The huge factory was mainly designed to produce fish oil from herrings with an ingenious process using gravity, heaters and squeezers. The rests of the fish were used to create powder and food for animals. . The oil had many purposes but the biggest one was for weapons and bombs. Swedish companies were buying oil from Djúpavík then selling it to the Nazis! Crazy! . You can visit the factory today and enter the huge concrete tanks where the oil was kept before being sold whenever the price was right. Sigur Rós recorded a song there a few years ago. . In the summer time, more than 200 young men and women coming from farms accross the country would be working at the factory. In all of Iceland, people were talking about this special place where there was no street, no police station and a lot of money to make. For most it was the first time they were making their own money that would allow them to emancipate from their parents and maybe travel. . In 1954, the factory closed because there were no more fish in the see. Had they been too greedy fishing too much too fast? Apparently climate change would be a bitter reason. Currents were modified and fish just moved elsewhere. And those industries are making so much money they could just “follow” the fish and create orher factory. . Today Djúpavík is a place where you’ll find a small lovely hotel (that used to be the employees’ dorm), great hiking, and a fabulous hot pot! We had a blast 🙃

One day we visited Raudasandur which means red sand beach although the sand looked pretty ordinary to me 🙄 This is how we found it in the early afternoon - we could walk between these little sand islands. In high tide, water level rose very quickly, islands disappeared and landscape transformed almost in a matter of minutes. #iceland #westfjords #raudasandur #wanderlust #nature #naturelovers

Sunday meditation is walking in a storm to the rocky beach and watching out from the fjord into the open ocean horizon. Reminding myself I am a part of planet earth - remind myself to not take my human existence too seriously (that is my biggest struggle, modern day anxiety and fear of the unknown). I am not in control. All I have to do is trust. The ocean teaches me to let go of the emotions in me that are negative - just give them to the crashing waves and let them wash away from me. Their sound is therapeutic. Today I am thankful for living where I can see the ocean from my window so I am reminded that no emotion lasts forever and the storm will always seize.

🇮🇸 GOÐAFOSS, BÁRÐARDALUR, ICELAND — ❄️ You’ve probably heard this a million times before..but Iceland really is one of those places you just have to see to believe... — Even the empty fields there somehow manage to look majestic 😂 — Anyway, I’ve been doing a fair bit of travel these last couple weeks, 🌞 Summer is definitely here in my books. — 🚀 What trips do you guys have planned this summer? Maybe we’ll be in the same place for a bit! (in which case, beers and local food are in order 😂).
