Gon may have travelled the furthest (and hardest: 4 flights and all the way from Argentina) since we started running the Adventurer of the Week series. Indeed, when you have a dream, and enough is enough, you have to act on it! So, he did! After 3 years, the dream was made real. Gon spent a whole month here in Iceland and came out on a glacier walk on Svínafellsjökull with us. Look at his beautiful pictures and remarkable video!
What motivated you to visit Iceland?
To be totally honest, on my bucket list for three years, and It's a long way from Argentina so I started watching documentaries about Iceland on the Discovery Channel, getting really interested in the culture, listening to Icelandic bands, reading the Sagas. All this things, were like pieces that made a big puzzle in my head. One day, I decided to go for it, so I bought four plane tickets (38 hours flying) to make a dream come true. It was totally worth it.
How long was your stay? Did you travel solo or with a group?
I was in the country for a month, covering the entire ring road solo. I made really good friends on the way! We work with a lot of companies to put the whole experience in a short film that you can see here:
