When we visited Japan we knew exactly what we wanted to do in both Hiroshima and Kyoto. They were easy - they had designated attractions that were obvious and historical. Places we couldn't miss! But when it came to planning our adventures in Tokyo, we were at a loss. Tokyo has no distinctive genre of attractions. It’s a melting...

My very first job, at 16 years old, was at See’s Candies in Portland, Oregon at the Lloyd Center Mall. I loved it so much I transferred to the store in Orem, Utah during college, and when Gabriel and I were married came back to my job at Lloyd Center. Eating bon bons all day? That's the life. Especially,...

It began the way the best stories always do, with a boy and a girl who fell in love. In the 1950's, Jay and Sandy Niederhauser met on a street corner in Salt Lake City, Utah. More in love now than they were in 1959, the couple has now spent over 50 years together. Today the couple spend their days...

Driving in Iceland in the winter can, and most likely will be terrifying and treacherous. Many of the roads are actually closed during the winter because driving conditions are so poor, including the entire northeast region. Driving in Iceland isn’t too bad in the city, but once you leave Reykjavik, country roads aren’t a priority for snowplows. In addition...

The local currency in Iceland is the króna, kr or ISK. Similar to all Scandinavian countries which utilize a version of the krone. Króna translates to crown, a nod to declaring autonomy in 1885 by printing their own banknotes, and ultimately gaining independence from Denmark in 1918.  Iceland is no stranger to the trouble with its currency. From its long...

When we traveled to Iceland, during the middle of December and the dark of winter, we had to pick our activities deliberately. With approximately four hours of daylight we couldn’t see everything, it just wasn’t mathematically or cosmically possible. The Golden Circle is 300 kilometers of Iceland’s most popular sites and attractions, including incredible sites that you can’t find...

Good luck trying to pronounce anything in Icelandic! It is one of the hardest languages to learn - it’s actually considered the 5th hardest language to learn. The vowels don’t sound like they look, and they have extra characters in their alphabet that are extra fancy and curvy. The Icelandic language contains sounds and letters that have vanished from...

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...
