Ryan and I woke up in our silent Guesthouse Drangshlíð excited to start the next day of adventures. After having our quick and filling Icelandic breakfast (hello cheese), we rushed out the door to our first stop, Reynisfjara – to admire the incredible black sand beach in the small village of Vik. On a normal day, you can’t get better than a Perth beach, but the stunning volcanic sand really was one-of-a-kind.
After 21 countries, 13 flights, 22 train trips, two epic road trips and uncountable gelato, I’m finally back home in Perth. It has been such a wild adventure and I’m so lucky to have been able to share it with my wonderful husband and awesome friends. I’m looking forward to going through all my photos (if I can ever get over this horrible jet lag!) and sharing my favourite cities, restaurants, markets and scenery on A Tactile Life.
For now, enjoy a few shots below from my travels… it’s time for my 4pm nap.
I’m currently in full swing in planning my 2015 holiday. I’m going to take three months off around August to feed my soul through art, culture and nature with an around the world ticket. While three months is quite a while, it’s still not enough time to scratch the surface of this amazing planet.
For now, I’m just trying to narrow down my list. The travel photography on Pinterest is just out of this world and always gives me a huge feeling of wanderlust each time I scroll through my feed.
I can’t wait to see New York in “the fall”, swim in the ocean at Big Sur, eat some Gelato in Rome, go hiking in Switzerland, picnic near the Eiffel Tower, eat real Mexican food in Mexico and experience the intensity of a Marrakesh souk. Do you have any recommendations? Any must sees?
