Issue 143 International Adventure: Where The Wind Blows

by 3

An eager Hannah heads to one of her dream destinations, only to discover it’s not like she imagined at all. Words Hannah Photography Hannah and Snorri Thor Tryggvason Iceland Air’s safety announcement features very little of the usual plane stuff. Instead, there is an improbably healthy and relaxed looking woman hiking her way across the mountainous landscapes of Iceland. Instead of heading for the exits, she walks serenely towards a pass between two hills.

I came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. I like all bikes, but especially unusual ones. More than bikes, I like what bikes do.

They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments. I try to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    Thanks @stwhannah – I really enjoyed watching and reading that!

    Iceland is somewhere I want to go back to as I’ve only seen a limited amount of it driving from Reykjavik to Akureyri (en route to Greenland) and missed all the geological wonders etc. Despite the wind and the bleakness I always feel drawn to such barren landscapes … but maybe I’m just channeling my ‘inner goth’! 😉
