Arriving in Iceland in March after a record amount of snow, I headed to a cosy base in the suburbs of the capital, Reykjavík. First impressions: the buses are crazy, the apartments are cosy and the beer is very expensive.

It seemed fitting to spend the first day exploring the city a little, drinking coffee, and walking on a frozen lake for the first time. This year so far, between my trips to Mexico and Iceland alone, I have swam in freshwater, walked on a frozen lake, walked under a waterfall and bathed in a natural hot spring; all firsts for me!
