Several of my travel stories and articles have been shared by online magazines and local tourist information sites. This is a selection of some of those, including their comments.

Regular updates and new features

I update my articles on a regular basis, so you’ll often find new information and practical tips. In 2023 I rewrote & re-arranged all of the blog articles on my website with even more features. The date above each article shows the last update. Be sure to check back in, and enjoy reading & exploring! 🙂

All my stories are based on my own experiences and original research.

Note: Some of the featured images in the links don’t show up, because I have changed the photos in the original article in the meantime. Other links may point to the old Wilderness Coffee & Natural High website on WordPress.com. There are also some shared posts from the Wilderness Coffee & Natural High Facebook page, where I first started my blog in 2017.

66 North Iceland

My content was also used without asking me first, or even adding a link to the original article. 66 North, a famous clothing brand in Iceland, copied my words about Vestmannaeyjar in their social media posts on Facebook and Instagram in June 2021.

They took a classic example of my style of writing & tone of voice from ‘The coastal track to Stórhöfði’. Even though I’m kind of ‘honoured’ to see that my article has obviously inspired them, it is common courtesy and practice for website professionals to at least acknowledge and link to the original source of where this piece of content came from. Their text below is literally copied from the section ‘Islands shaped by volcanic activity’ in my article about Stórhöfði.
