Another location of ‘Game of Thrones’. Maybe we will visit them all very soon. Well, this was not our intention, but who knows?.

Before we visited Iceland, I kept asking myself how people can live in such a cold country. After visiting I understand. Firstly: It wasn’t that cold. And secondly: How damn beautiful is that country?!

We’ve been there last week and seriously: We really think about returning next year the same time.

At the airport in Frankfurt a security staff asked me, why we wanted to go to such a cold place. I told him all reasons in fast forward mode:

1. Northern Lights
