That piercing salty smell of the air.

The stretch of the horizons – broken only by the azure of the sky, and the crashing of the waves.

A wander around quirky Reykjavik

Reykjavik is home to 3/4 of Iceland’s population – yet it is still a small town-like city. With a friendly and very relaxed atmosphere it was easy to wander the streets, and every shop or cafe I walked into was warm and welcoming.

I never thought I’d end up in a Penis Museum… to tell the truth, I didn’t know that a museum of penises even existed… but who was I kidding…. A Penis Museum was just what this town needed. With quirks like this, I saw Iceland’s odd sense of humour shining through, and I liked what I saw! ha ha ha.

Love, loss and colour in Lima

“Cities were always like people, showing their varying personalities to the traveler. Depending on the city and on the traveler, there might begin a mutual love, or dislike, friendship, or enmity. Where one city will rise a certain individual to glory, it will destroy another who is not suited to its personality. Only through travel can we know where we belong or not, where we are loved and where we are rejected.”
