I recently had the great pleasure of staying at the little guest house on the sea. I came in the depths of winter and found the warmth of hospitality enchanting.

My boyfriend and I planned on traveling around the entire island, but our plans were completely ruined when we woke up in Kirkjubaejarklaustur & found ourselves in the middle of the volcanic eruption of Grimsvotn! We emailed the hostess...
