The day I preferred a cracker to a cookie – Iceland Diary 4

Glacier time! Woke up in rain again and packed our wet tent. After a long drive down the Ringway into the South with a short and rainy lunch stopover at Höfn we arrived at Jökulsárlón, the Glacier river. Although it was quite misty and very, very windy it was a great sight. But I preferred watching the […]

My Iceland Essentials

Here are some items you definitely should take with you when you plan a trip to Iceland. Of course it doesn’t have to be exactly the same pieces and for you guys trunks will be fine ;) But essentially that’s what you need to survive an Icelandic spring or fall. gloves+scarf+warm jacket: ginatricot // headband: H&M // […]

Waterfalls in the North-East! Iceland Diary Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of my Iceland Diary! The day started with a wet tent because it was raining all morning at Myvatn. After packing it we continued our journey to the east and hit Námaskarð. Although it was raining the area was very impressive – just look at the colours! Afterwards we drove up north […]

3 more weeks to prepare for the half marathon

Hello Fall! Smoothie time isn’t over yet!

Summer has come and gone and fall starts today! Nevertheless in my opinion it’s always smoothie time, so I want to share my “goodbye-summer-smoothie-creations” with you. All you need is a powerful blender like this one, some fruit, milk or yogurt/sorbet and eventually ice cubes. There’s nothing better than a self-made smoothie after a long run. […]

Colour attack! – Iceland, Day 2

Saying goodbye to the gravel road (for now!) we left the highland and drove on Route 1 to Akureyri. Akureyri is said to be the northern capital of Iceland – what a funny thought if you keep in mind that only 18.000 people live there! They were having their 150 year celebrations when we arrived so the […]

27 days until my first half marathon

My vacation messed my previous training achievements up a bit, so my calves feel a little sore after the 10k run and 30-minute-bike yesterday. I hope they get better soon because this week a 10k, a 12k and a company run wait for me. As you might have noticed I won’t be running the Munich […]
