Alexandra's Expedition to Iceland

Current Location

Reykjavík, Iceland

Hi, I'm Alexandra, and I live on the island country of Iceland. From waterfalls and glaciers to volcanos and traditions that date back to the time of Vikings, there's so much we can explore together!


It has been a fairly typical week in Ísafjörður, which for me means 1,000 tiny earthquakes, some spectacular northern lights viewing, and a polar plunge to welcome the new year!


Before we journey to Iceland together, let me introduce myself and tell you a little more about how I came to be living in (and exploring) Iceland.

Field Notes

Welcome to Þorrablót, the Icelandic midwinter festival during which people recite poems about the Norse god, Thor, and eat fermented shark. Let's investigate!


As we start on this journey to Iceland together, enjoy this photographic preview of some of this island country's many highlights. Which of these photos would you like to learn more about?
