Nothing compares to seeing it in person. The human eyes register more colour than a camera lens.
But in order for the camera to capture this phenomenon, you need to experiment with its manual settings. The recipe for success was (using my canon point & shoot): ISO- 800, shutter speed- 8”, aperture: 2.0 (the lowest the camera can get). I mounted it on my super portable bright blue “big bendy” tripod (dwarfed by the dinosaur pro tripods around me), and used my phone as a remote viewfinder (it’s much easier than setting the self-timer.) I tried to take as many photos of it so that I can just paste it all together to make a nightlapse. But I got so overwhelmed by its beauty that I lost concentration and only had enough frames for less than a second. (Well, actually it got way too cold 😂).
Imported it to VSCO then applied F2 preset with no changes because I’m too lazy to do that. 😜

Since it’s super cold (3 degrees) and I did not layer well, I need to heat up and avoid getting sick by eating a bowl of chicken noodle soup. This is, I believe, Vietnamese / Southern China style noodle soup. #foodporn #foodie #foodstagram #travel #journey #iceland #reykjavik #iphonepic #instapic #instamood #instagood #vsco #vscolife #vscocam #vscomood #vscophile #iphonesia #iphoneography #iphonephoto #iphoneonly #noodles #noodlesoup #soup
Never thought I would be able to see an actual #glacier up close! Another traveller, who’s from Canada, told me that they also have glaciers back home, but in order for someone to be on it requires the proper gear. Due to the solid ground and accessibility of #Myrdasjokull, we were able to reach its edge and have a close-up view of it. (There’s an option to walk on it...and it doesn’t come cheap 😅) The ice cap of this glacier covers #Kalta, the queen of all Icelandic volcanoes. Kalta erupts every 50 years according to records, but it’s been 99 years since it erupted.. So expect it to be on the news once it decides to erupt. The people of the nearby town #Vík regularly go on drills going to the church on top of the hill. Kalta’s eruption will greatly devastate Vík. Beside this glacier is #Eyjafjallajökull, the infamous volcano that erupted in 2010 and caused the cancellation of thousands of flights in Europe.
P.S. We’re standing on an #iceberg thinly covered with volcanic soil.

The #BlackSandsBeach in #Vík is truly a magnificent place. Vík (southernmost town of #Iceland) had the craziest weather! It constantly changes every 5 minutes from sunny to rainy. But this did not prevent us from exploring the place. I admit that I got a bit scared with the waves (im a good 30m away from the shore) because the current is very unpredictable. We’ve had this type of waves back home but they’re not ice cold! The black sand resulted from the high volcanic activity in the island. Think of it as a lava field crushed into tiny bits. The rocks that are being swept onto shore are as smooth as they can be. The guide asked me how was it, I joked “it’s good for surfing.” 😜

Thingvellir National Park is situated in a continental drift between the North American and Eurasian plates. There came a time in the past when the area sunk 200m in just 10 days! The area is considered a “microplate” since it is neither on the North American nor on the Eurasian plates. This stream originates from #Oxararfoss (falls) which then flows into #Thingvalavatn (lake). .

We need to thank a strong woman named Sigríður Tómasdóttir.. She is the reason why #Gullfoss is accessible to the public. Aside from paving the way with her sisters, she actually fought for it to be preserved. A bunch of Brits in the 40s wanted to build a hydroelectric power plant on it. Sigríður’s father, Tómas Tómasson, rejected the plans. He used to own the land in and around Gullfoss. When he died, the investors thought it was the perfect time to seize the opportunity and ask the government to side with them. However, Sigríður fought for it until the government finally declared it to be a natural wonder not meant to be destroyed..

Hydrate hydrate hydrate as always. At 6,800 m above ground, the last thing you can forget when hiking up #Kolsåstoppen is to bring water. When you reach it’s peak, enjoy the view of #Oslofjord by chugging down a bottle of this refrashing drink. (Day by day these posts are starting to sound like ads. 😅)

Nailaban ang #Kolsåstoppen. I laboured over this. It’s a long (and arduous- to my fitness level) hike to the top but the view was well worth it. Hej #Oslofjord. I should have booked more days here.

Ales Stenar (Ales Stones) is a megalithic monument in Scania in southern Sweden. It is a stone ship, oval in outline, with the stones at each end markedly larger than the rest. (Wiki) .

It took multiple attempts to nail the shot when I try to resemble a starfish. It was very windy and very cold on top of the hill. Sheep crap is everywhere so I need to be careful. But it was worth everything. The taxi driver thinks I’m crazy for going there in October...but I told him I won’t be able to enjoy the place if it’s swarmed by a million tourists. When I reached the top, I was literally on tears...because the wind is drying up my eyes. 😂

Spent most of my day inside the train since I’m such an idiot for waking up really late and missing my flight to Copenhagen. 😭 Anyway, this train took me to Ghetto / Posh Hamburg. I need to hydrate and AED 15 for a bottle of water is waaay too much out here! 😰

This is a part of #Amsterdam that you don’t get to see in postcards... A part of Amsterdam where no tour group will take you... In my hunt for #windmills, I was brought here... #canal #instagood #instamood #iphonesia #iphoneography #iphonephoto #iphonepic #vsco #vscocam #vscolife #vscophile#netherlands #holland#noordamsterdam #ij
Sitting by the dock on the other side of #IJ, enjoying a can of #Dutch #beer... not bothered by the cold breeze, watching how Central #Amsterdam slowly comes to life at #night... Here’s to a great time in this magical city. 🖤❌❌❌🖤 #instagood #instamood #iphonesia #iphonepic #iphonephoto #vsco #vscocam #vscophile #vscolife #netherlands #holland #amsterdamnoord #heineken #cheesy #meditation #river #night #nightlights #travel #solotravel #exploring #holiday
Survived the ride along the #IJ lake with just a hoodie. It was soooo cold. I was too lazy to take my outer jacket from my bag. 😂😂😂 #amsterdam #canal #canalcruise #canalboat #iphonevideo #slowmotion #slomo #instagood #instamood #iphonesia
Perhaps one of the best way to celebrate this #Parisian National Symbol / architectural wonder is with a cold bottle of French #beer (or champagne).
Whenever the tower sparkles (it does every hour, in the evening, of course), the atmosphere changes. The crowd cheers, lovers kiss, people take selfies, champagne bottles are opened...
Oh Paris! I will miss your cobbled streets, the (surprisingly navigable) subway system, the easygoing nature of your children, you’re very loose laws on smoking in public (smoker’s paradise!).. A weekend in Paris is not enough. Au revoir îles-de Paris! 🖤🇫🇷
