We never regretted our decision to settle down north. But let’s face it – we're missing our families. With mother’s day approaching we got ourselves a beautiful portable photo printer: HP Sprocket. We will print out shots of our home by heart to create a scrapbook of moments we want to gift to our moms.

#reinventmemories – building a bridge between our two homes with the HP Sprocket

We never regretted our decision to settle down north. But let’s face it – we’re missing our families. The places we grew up at. The memories we made. And they miss us. With mother’s day approaching we got ourselves a beautiful portable photo printer: HP Sprocket. We will print out shots of our home by heart to create a scrapbook of moments we want to gift to our moms. Way more personal than cellphone pictures and something to build a bridge over the distance.

Moving apart and making plans – a personal update

So we moved apart. Not just into two different apartments but also two different parts of the south western island. While Einar and I are already done moving, Caro and Logi are still waiting for their newly bought home to be free, with their moving date being around first of July.

Meet the TEVA Arrowood Lux Mid - the perfect blend of sneaker and outdoor shoe. Great breathability, light weighted, water and slip-resistent. Especially when hiking for a long time it's super important to have a boot that does not weight much and leaves you blister-free.

The perfect hiking boot for medium leveled hikes

Ever so often, we get questions about what clothes to bring to Iceland. Which jackets would be best to protect against heavy rain, what to wear during the harsh and cold winter, or storm season. But above all and most reoccurring: what kind of shoes we would suggest. Well, of course that depends on the season.

Fueling your body and soul with adventure is one part of the story, fueling your body while being on an adventure the other. We fuel our adventure like we fuel everyday life - with healthy, easy nutrition. Next to appreciation for nature we grew up with another rule in our homes: no unhealthy food. We still keep that up. Our recent go to snack is by Herbalife, just like the nutritional shakes we are having for breakfast.

Passion made possible – chase your dreams, follow your heart

We think there is something burning in every one of us. A yearning, a knowledge. It might be traveling, it might be a certain place, it might lie in raising kids or helping others. It might be something you haven’t seen or done, yet. But we truly and honestly believe that if you find what drives you you will find your way. It’s like that with so many things in life – if you don’t at least try, if you don’t set foot on uncommon ground, you never know.

The importance of dreaming BIG

What would you do if everything was possible/who would you be if you could be anyone? We all asked ourselves those questions a few times in our lives by now, right? And we most likely heard people say ‘you shouldn’t think about that ‘cause it makes you unhappy, makes you feel like your own life is not good enough’ just as often. I claim the opposite. I dare to say: go for it! Dreaming is such an amazing thing as is opens your mind, gives you a certain kind of freedom, keeps your fantasy alive and most importantly: it makes you happier – at least that’s what I experienced.
