The Decorated Farmhouses of Hälsingland, Sweden

Some UNESCO sites aren’t famous works of architecture like Himeji Castle in Japan or the 16th century canal ring of Amsterdam, for example, or ancient historical monuments like Petra in Jordan or Baalbek in Lebanon. Some are more modest, less showy, and exemplify local culture and crafts. The Decorated Farmhouses of Hälsingland, Sweden, are a…

7 Things to do in Thingvellir National Park, Iceland

I’ve already written quite a bit about our 3-week road trip around Iceland last summer, but I only briefly mentioned Thingvellir (more properly spelled as Þingvellir) in my itinerary article.

Troll Expeditions Iceland glacier hike

On our three-week road trip around Iceland, my husband Albert wanted very much to walk on a glacier. I ended up booking him a five-hour Iceland glacier hike with Troll Expeditions, leaving from Skaftafell. I decided not to go myself. Why? When the description mentioned crampons and icepicks, I decided it wasn’t a good idea…

3-week Iceland itinerary: the best Iceland road trip!

We had three weeks free and drove right around the country to see pretty much all the highlights. What follows here is a three-week Iceland itinerary. It’s a bit different from…
