I love visiting the Westfjords because of the nature, the history, the beauty and the food. Ok, mainly the food. Seriously this small part of Iceland has just a wonderful food culture. 840 more words

Continuing with our joyous adventures when we finally got our car we decided to take off and explore the Westfjords (or Bestfjords!) with our first weekend off together in nearly 6 months – that’s what happens when you both work 2 jobs and you have to make the most of the time you have off together with your beautiful car named Senor Pickles (yes, we named our car and I can’t quite remember why we picked that name but I digress…). 450 more words
We arrived in Patreksfjörður with the hope of seeing relatives but with no actual plan. It is not really the Icelandic way to plan ahead. I’ve often heard the theory that Icelanders’ inability or unwillingness to plan ahead is tied to the uncertainty of the weather, and that even now, when modern technologies and conveniences can mitigate the harshness of weather to some extent, it’s still in their blood to wait until the last minute. 1,667 more words
