Life With a View is dedicated to the passion for travel.
Live. Travel. Repeat.
Travel has always been a big part of my life. Together my husband and I have traveled through North and Central America, Europe, and the South Pacific. I LOVE travel. Travel makes me feel alive.
Let’s rewind a couple of years. We were living in the 3rd biggest city in America, the view out of our window was a Coca-Cola factory. I felt suffocated. I craved nature. A bike ride through the park or a weekend in the hill country didn’t satiate my need. I was unfulfilled and looking for a way out.
Enter our honeymoon.
We chose Iceland for our honeymoon for it’s raw and astounding nature. The diversity of landscapes makes it a destination like no other. Glaciers, waterfalls, volcanoes, northern lights.
I was hooked. I was in love with every minute of every day. I cried on the flight back to the states.
Iceland awakened something in me that I couldn’t ignore and would never be able to turn back from.
We both knew we wanted to return to Iceland, but this time on a permanent basis. We started the process of immigration, and one year later boarded a flight with nothing more than a one way ticket and two suitcases.
Living in Iceland gives me the ability to uncover hidden gems. I spend every weekend exploring new places and uncovering hidden gems…and I want to share them with you!
When I was planning my trip to Iceland I had to search all over the internet to find what I was looking for. Where are the best spots to go? What should I pack? What is the weather like?
I wished I could have asked people questions, so that’s why I created a Facebook group – a network of people to bounce ideas off of.
And that’s why I created this blog. To put everything in ONE place. To help YOU discover all of the amazing places that Iceland has to offer.
I’m here to help you plan the Iceland trip of your dreams.
Iceland is THE place of my dreams, and I’m lucky enough to now call this place home.
