Iceland Summer 2021
Yippee! It is finally possible to travel again! Iceland was one of the first countries
to open up to travelers, at least to vaccinated travelers.
This trip included driving all around the entire ring road, travels in the West Fjords,
and lots of time spent in lovely hot springs.
And as an added bonus, after making all the plans for the trip, an amazing volcano came to life.
It was a strenuous hike, but I got some great photos and videos.
Epic journey to Greece, Turkey, Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary, Croatia, Austria, and the Czechlands.
Including a Riverboat cruse up the Danube, sailing from Split to Dubrovnik in Croatia,
amazing rock formations in Cappadocia, and a wonderful family reunion.
Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Paris, Oslo
Extended journey through Paris, Barcelona, Girona, Figueres,
Bilbao, San Sebastián, Madrid, Lisbon, Sintra, The Algarve (Faro and Lagos),
Seville, Córdoba, Granada, Gibraltar,
Tangier, Fes, Marrakech, Casablanca, Rabat, Asilah, Málaga, Ronda, and Oslo.
I didn't want to leave, and would definitely consider retiring here.

there is so much to see in a tiny island whose whole population is smaller than the city of Portland?
