We will always remember the feeling that flushed over us when the sound of this song hit our ears for the first time. It was like we were flying. It's pretty amazing when a song hit you so hard that everything else around you disappears.
And then you listen to it again, again and again. And every time you turn that song on, it doesn't matter where you, what you are doing, or what time it is, because it takes you someplace else.
It was a few years ago that we first discovered Sigur Ros. That band really opened our eyes for Iceland (you have to look at the music videos, they are pure magic). So one recent afternoon we decided to book a flight to the volcanic island in the far north of the atlantic ocean.
We now long to once again get lost with a car and have nothing except the wilderness, our camera and ourselves. We've been longing for adventures for quite some time now (haha that is almost everything we write about here, so it's about time that we actually go on some) Adventures that includes just the wilderness and the freedom that comes with it when you have nothing except yourself and the nature. To listen to the sound of silence and let mother nature itself blow you away time after another. Mmmm, can't wait to show you Iceland from our perspective, shooted through our lens within a few weeks.
PS. We heard that they recorded parts of GOT there, so if any of you could tell us where John Snow is hiding that would be great...)
You probably now how much we love to get lost and go to places we never been before. Like this festival we told you about in the recent post. We were driving around for 1,5 hours before we finally found a tiny little arrow that pointed us to the right direction. When we finally arrived it was like heaven on earth. It was at a place they called "Tajmahalla", just by a tiny lake.
Even though the festival were pretty small (400 people approx) there where people there from all over the world, we met new friends from Tokyo, New York, Berlin, Paris Iceland and Scotland. It’s hard to describe how good it was in words but this weekend has been beyond our wildest expectations! We hope the pictures will give you a feeling instead. And yes, we built the tipi (for next year we are planning to build a castle haha).
Some snapshots from back in the days and from our recent trip to the west coast. The best thing with travelling is that you get to know people that you probably never would have met if you were living in the same place. When you travel you are somehow automatically more open minded then otherwise and you see things from a different perspective than you normally do because everything is new. We met a guy that were living in a hammock in a little fishing cabin and he also had a van.. We couldn't help ourselves but to start making adventurous plans to road trip in Europe together. Just us, the van and the roads again, as it always should be.
