Iceland is a sustainable country. They pride themselves on their environmental thinking and their easy execution of it, as I wrote about prior to this, here. HI Hostels follow and promote that lifestyle as well. It is wonderful to support a place that cares so much.

I have recently fell in love with cycling. I started riding my bike to work. Granted I only live 2 miles from work but it is a great way to get exercise and use of my bike. I am also lucky I live on Long Island and am surrounded by tons of great bike paths.

There are so many islands to choose from in Stockholm’s archipelago. You would have to spend month’s there to see them all. I was lucky enough to spend a couple days exploring two of them. Nasslingen and Roslagen. Indulging in delicious food, sweating in saunas and learning all about the military history of the area.
