I’m sad to say goodbye to all of our friends here as this is our last weekend at Catamount (a local, family run ski area in the Berkshire mountains). I grew up skiing here as a child and my daughter has ski raced in their program now for the past 6 years. As parents of a kid who’s time is heavily invested in a sport, I think we’re enjoying it as much as (if not more!) than she is. For me, skiing is a way to be active in the winter while enjoying the beautiful outdoors. This morning the treetops were covered with a layer of snow and ice which really glistened when the sun shone through, resulting in an incredibly beautiful and breathtaking frozen landscape. #greatoutdoors#outdoorbeauty#frozen#icytrees#iceland#frozentrees#frozenlandscape#iloveskiing#ski#skiing
Like Simba and Mufasa looked at the land that was theirs, Siku looks at all the mess that is hers. In her sweater. Cuz it’s cold out today! Like. Really cold

The Glaciers and Ice Cave Exhibition is the first exhibition of the new Perlan Museum – Wonders of Iceland. The exhibition is built inside one of Perlan’s six hot water tanks. It illustrates the glaciers, their history and bleak future, and gives visitors the amazing opportunity to experience travelling through a real man-made Ice Cave. ❄️ #perlan#icecave#iceland
Iceland is breathtaking! Save money by renting a car and taking yourself on a tour of the Golden Circle. Sights are spaced out so be prepared to spend a lot of time in the car. Save money by packing a lunch(we shopped at Bonus supermarket and made pb&j sandwiches with chips).
I remember how I felt in this exact moment. We stopped in the middle of Iceland on one of the most unaccessible roads (dried up river bed) in the country and I thought to myself... if something goes wrong here we’re in deep trouble. We had blast.
It was such a rad experience to watch these dust clouds float around in the wind at the edge of my favourite mountain last summer. Whether it’s those moments of extreme weather or a peaceful hike in the mountains, exploring in Iceland is always filled with incredible memories.
What has been your most memorable experience whilst travelling here? Or if you haven’t been yet, what are you most stoked for during your trip?
