„In 2019, we took our cordial friend Mario to Iceland. Waiting for a ferry to Denmark at the port in Seyðisfjörður, he boasted to the German driver of a well-worn Land Rover that had just spent the last two months on the island. - The German congratulated our friend and whilst brewing tea, he said that also is returning to the continent... after 4 months of tramping around the wilderness and that he was here for the fourteenth time!”
„In 2018, we met a married couple from the Netherlands on our trip to Iceland. Near the "Magic Pool" we had breakfast with them, warming up in their Volkswagen California. They told us about their lives, how they had lived on a sailing boat in Ushuaia for 12 years and every year they took friends on a cruise around Cape Horn and Antarctica. After a dozen or so years, they sold their yacht, bought a car and, for 7 years they have been coming to Iceland for 3 months every year.”
