Collision Course: How to Walk British

Written on August 1, 2017 in Do

I have this belief that when you walk in public, you should walk as if you’re driving by walking in “lanes”. Slow walkers to one side with a passing lane to the right (at least in North America). People lose their minds if you drive the speed limit in the passing lane, but don’t appear...

Bad Times at the Blue Lagoon

Written on July 4, 2017 in Iceland

It didn’t take long to realize the folly that was enduring the pounding freezing rain while we sipped prosecco at 8 in the morning at the world famous Blue Lagoon. At $100 a head, we tried to get the most out of the experience, but at some point we realized there’s no benefit to suffering...

The (Hot) Dog Days of Iceland

Written on May 5, 2017 in Eat

We ate our first Icelandic hot dog at Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur, which literally translates to ‘the best hot dog in town’. Throughout the week we also sampled hot dogs from a tourist stop on the south coast and from a gas station in the middle of nowhere, and the quality is pretty much uniform. While...
