My days in Copenhagen and the Faroe Islands went like a dream. It wasn’t so much of a “dream” come true – because, honestly speaking, both destinations weren’t particularly high on my list – I only went because I was awarded a trip of my choice by my company with additional vacation days to spare so I wanted to do something different.

The volcano to the center of the earth is Snæfellsjökull and it is situated on the Snæfellsnes peninsula.
After picking up the rental car, I set out to my own expedition. It only takes two hours to get to Snæfellsnes from Reykjavik. But when driving in Iceland, stops are essential.
