Brennivin and Shark in Iceland


Here's a fun clip of me sampling some traditional Icelandic food with the lovely Lea of Hesteimar Horse farm http://www.hestheimar.is/, highly recommend a stay here, they have wonderful rooms and cabins and home cooked meals by the family. It is located in Southern Iceland with great accessibility to the coast, the golden circle route and amazing country drives.


The farm is a world class breeding facility for Icelandic horses that haven't left Iceland or been mixed for 1000 years. We celebrated the wee mans first birthday here and sweet Lea made a cake - magic. The farm also offers riding lessons and trail riding. 


me and our darling now one year old

this is traditional Icelandic bread made by Lea, it is slow cooked for 7 hours at a low temperature. In fact in the area's near hot springs, local's bake it in the ground for 24 hrs. Its great with butter for fish. 






Have a wonderful weekend everyone

  5. I've always wanted to visit Iceland, it seems very expensive for a short visit and there is always somewhere else to go first. I've enjoyed following your trip.

  10. I love culture and cultural foods are one of the biggest adventures an appetite can take! Iceland dishes are less known to me. Thanks for sharing this! That bread sounds divine!
