Daily Outfit: What to wear for a summer weekend in Iceland

I mentioned that this was a bit of a cray cray year, travel wise right?!

Aside from a fortnight in Japan, backpacking round Europe and a six week trip to North America, I also headed up to Iceland five times this year.
(and found myself a Viking too!)

So, what to wear for a long weekend up in Iceland in the middle of summer? Your winter gear, of course!

This house was from the 1970s or something crazy, no joke.

There'll be more Iceland photos so I hope you're not tired of them yet! Who could get tired of that strange light and surreal alien landscapes....


  1. Yay Iceland!
    That caldera is called Kerið

  2. You two look great together. I love those shots on the glacier! Awesome!

  3. O, I am so impressed...Iceland has long been on my list as somewhere I want to go!!! Great pix! XXX
