Bailey's Tumblings

Homme libre, toujours tu chériras la mer! 

Rabat, Morocco: September 13-14

Iceland: August 31 - September 6

it’s just as magical as it seems in other peoples’ photos, but you can’t understand the scale until you see it for yourself—the glacier tongues, the volcanoes (and their constant threat), the abrupt cliffs. 

What I didn’t expect:

  • how kindhearted the people are
  • how quiet it is. all you can hear is wind
  • how good the food was. everything from the cheese to the vegetables to the meat (and langoustine!) is sourced within the country and was honestly exceptional. Warning: you pay for it, sometimes up to $70 USD for two hamburgers at lunch.
  • how perfectly paved the main road is and how endlessly it runs for.
  • how manageable the water temperature was. the arctic was cold, but only a few degrees colder than northern california in winter.
