#JetSetKex in Iceland - Jokusarlon Ice Lagoon


A glacier river lagoon in SouthEast Iceland. 
The lake only developed some 60 years ago when glaciers started receding from the edge of the Atlantic Ocean.

#JetSetKex in Iceland - Reykjavik

The 2 weeks epic trip was made in Sep 2015, with my 3 best girlfriends.
We drove from the coastal capitol of Iceland - Reykjavik,
all the way in an anti-clockwise direction, and back to where we started.

Here's a rough breakdown of our itinerary -
Day 1 Reykjavik
Day 2 Gullfoss, Pingvellir Silfra Dive, Geysir
Day 3 ATV to Solheimasandur Plane Crash Site, Skogafoss, Seljalandfoss
Day 4 Glacier Hike & Jokusarlon Glacier Lagoon
Day 5 Roadtrip to Akureryi, Selfoss & Dettifoss
Day 6 Godafoss, Myvatn Lofthellir Ice Caving
Day 7 Dalvik
Day 8 Husavik, Asbyrgi Canyon
Day 9 Drive from Husavik to Stikkish
Day 10 Stikkish to Vogar, Kirkjufellsfoss, Saxholl Volcanic Crater, Fjorhusid
Day 11 Ytri Tunga Seal Watching, Black Church, Peninsula Drive
Day 12 Blue Lagoon

I will only be blogging about some highlights of the trip!
It all began with Reykjavik...


Kex Hostel

Skulagata 28 
101 Reyjavik Iceland 
According to the Icelandic dictionary, "Kex" literally stands for a biscuit.
The name of the hostel came about because the place is housed in an old biscuit factory downtown Reyjavik! 
It's within walking distance to the city centre and very convenient in my opinion! 

The hostel sign is not flashy so be sure to keep a lookout for the place!

We took the stairs to arrive at the door of our quaint little hostel.

PomPomPurin Cafe @ Orchard Central!

I'm no food blogger,
cos if i am i would only be featuring broccoli, tofu, eggs and tuna.
Which isn't exactly appetising to most.

But this new little Sanrio-themed Pompompurin cafe
has completely turned me into a girly 12 year old,
and i was gushing and literally screaming at the dishes when they were being presented on the table.
Thank you so much Touch PR for inviting me to the cutest tasting session i've ever had!

Pompompurin and friends! 
Fun fact, pompom is actually a golden retriever who loves to have pudding made by his mom. 
In fact, he loves it so much that he sometimes take the shape of a pudding. 
Pompom also loves hanging out with his friends - 
Bagel the Squirrel, Coconut the Monkey, Mint the frog, and Macaroon the golden retriever.

You can even choose to have Pompompurin himself sit next to you as you dine.

#JetSetKex in Bali, Mount Batur!

It's amazing how simple thoughts can materialise into ways the least expected. 

A few weeks ago,
i had a sudden urge to revisit Mount Batur once again. 
My first climb up was in 2014. 
On that morning, we reached the summit only to find the sky completed shrouded in clouds. 

It was beautiful nevertheless and left a deep impression on me. 

On "Cloud 9"!

I'm a pretty restless individual and I hardly like doing the same things twice. 

But Mount Batur is different. 
I truly miss it.

I miss marvelling at the view of lake batur from eye-level. 
I miss the amazing sense of accomplishment felt at the top of the mountain.
I miss watching the orange fireball peek from behind Mount Agung and Abang at the crack of dawn. 
I even miss hating the crazy trek upslope, the occasional slip of the foot, the cursing and swearing that went on in my head with each step i took, the muscle aches and ankle pain that ensued the day after the climb. 

So i did it, i went back to the mountain and this time,
the weather was perfect. :)
