Interview with Mountaineer Wim Smets

Climbing Mount Everest

Next month I will do the Mount Everest Base Camp Trek and will go till the top of Kala Patthar located at an altitude of 18,193 ft (5,545 m). Climbing to the Roof of the World - the top of the Mount Everest - is an incredible achievement; one that definitely fascinates me. I will probably never make it to the top myself but one of my fellow citizens - Wim Smets - did. This adventurous spirit climbed the highest mountains in the world, did a North Pole expedition, ran the Sahara marathon ... When we met for a drink in our hometown Antwerp-Belgium, I had the chance to interview this inspiring person for my new blog. You can read the complete interview here.

The fairytale South Coast of Iceland

Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, Iceland

Most people stay around Reykjavik, the Blue Lagoon and the Golden Circle area while visiting Iceland during wintertime. However Iceland's fairytale South Coast is definitely worth a visit all year round and offers many stunning sightseeing opportunities. Besides Ice hiking and Ice climbing on the Sólheimajökull glacier close to Vik, we also visited the natural wonders along Iceland's South Coast and took a day trip to the famous Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon located in the south-east.
