She's also lived coast to coast in the United States and has spent most of...

The Volcano House in the city center of Reykjavik doesn’t sell batteries, but they are open on Christmas Day. They are the only place we could find open on Christmas Day in Iceland, when my insulin pump ran out of batteries and we were desperate. That is just the how of why we came to the Volcano House, (you...

In the winter, Tjörnin Pond, in the city center of Reykjavik, is a gathering place to play ice hockey and soccer, and to go ice skating. This can be done formally or informally, as there is no where to rent ice skates for the pond. This means you’ll want to either bring your own skates or step out in your boots...

Believe it or not, Iceland wasn’t the last time we went winter swimming. There is something entirely primal about confronting below freezing weather in your skivvies and jumping into a slightly less cold pool. It kick-starts your heart, makes your bones jump and fills your lungs with the breath of a dragon. Swimming is a natural pastime in Iceland,...

My birthday falls two days before Christmas. It is on December 23, the eve of Christmas Eve. My mom left the hospital immediately after I was born to come home to take care of her five other kids and create the magical Christmas they expected to have. Growing up, Christmas was always a very enchanting time in our household....

When we visit a new place, we love living as the locals do - participating in local customs, eating the native foods, walking through their neighborhoods, and everything else. When we came to Iceland for Christmas, we wanted to have an Icelandic Christmas. We wanted to eat skate on Þorláksmessa, (dish of putrefying shark), and reindeer on Christmas. We...

Iceland has intrigued us ever since Gabriel first graduated with his Bachelor’s Degree, and he applied for a job at CCP Games in Reykjavik. We were enamored by the idea of walking outside to go snowboarding, writing books in the summer twilight, and that crime is so low even the police don’t carry guns. Sadly, Gabriel didn’t get this...

Iceland is one of the most intriguing places we’ve ever been. It was unique unto itself, and the culture was fascinating. The way that the people in Iceland honor the land, and the sea, and they way that they celebrate life and respect their ancient beliefs of Norse mythology was compelling to be a part of. We were treated...

Salem, Massachusetts didn’t prove to be quite what we expected. During our trip to Boston, we carved out a day to spend touring the most iconic Halloween destination in America. Rather than festive Halloween celebrations, however, we found little more than a torture chamber of silliness. While we infinitely enjoyed learning about the history of Salem, and touring the...

Please, explain to me how Frankenstein’s Castle is voted Salem’s Best Haunted House? What exactly were the criteria for elements of judging? Are there no other Haunted Houses within driving distance to choose from? Was judging completed by kindergartners? Was the judging based solely off of Frankenstein Haunted Houses? Maybe it was up against other Haunted Houses that have...
