Iceland is a country with amazing landscapes, delicious & unique cuisine, and a welcoming culture that should make it top of list for any adventure traveler. With a number of direct flight options available from many US destinations, travel is quick and affordable. We recently embarked on a five day road trip across Iceland’s southern coast. While the rest of the country has a lot to offer, our research showed this was the best way to see the most of Iceland in a short amount of time. This post will give you all the information you need to know to experience a great five day road trip.
Note that if you are travelling to Iceland in the Winter like us, there is limited daylight. For our trip there was between 5-6 hours of daylight. However, Iceland’s twilight was considerably longer than Boston. Even though the sunrise wasn’t until 11:00am, it started getting light out by 9:30am. While traveling in the Summer has advantages to see more during daylight, traveling in the Winter also …
One of our all-time favorite hikes was Welch & Dickey in White Mountains, New Hampshire. Unlike your typical hikes, this trail takes you to the summit of two mountains; both with fantastic views. We did this hike in the early Fall. Since there is a ton of foliage along the trail, it was awesome seeing all leaves starting to change colors.
The Welch-Dickey loop is around 4.5 miles long and is a moderately difficult hike. It takes around 3 hours to complete. The first part of the hike is climbing up Welch Mountain. There were several steeper areas on this mountain and the trail itself was a bit rocky. We recommend having a good pair of hiking shoes.
When you reach the summit the views are amazing. As you look across, you see the next mountain you are about to hike- Dickey. We found the mountain views from the Welch summit to be better than Dickey. Be sure to take some good pictures!
As you head down Welch, you descend for about a half hour until you begin hiking Dickey M…
Pinkies up ladies and gentlemen. No this isn't London,
this is High Tea in Boston.
Recently we made a reservation at
Hotel in Boston for their Afternoon High Tea experience. When we
walked into the lobby, our noses perked up and taste buds started dancing with
the cornucopia of tea aromas. The lounge setting of the restaurant
was both luxurious and modern. We were greeted by a hostess who took us to our
white tablecloth setting with beautiful Wedgwood china.
The waiter provided us a
large sampling of different black and green teas to choose
from, all of which have been imported from London. Once we made our selections,
the waiter came back over and served our tea selections in our own
individual Wedgwood teapots.
Our meal was similar to that of a
prix fixe menu, with the opportunity for add-ons upon request. As part of
the experience we were provided an array of delicious
finger sandwiches which were quite filling. However we made sure to save
room for dessert, which …
