By far the most amazing thing I have ever done in my life to date is backpacking Fimmvörðuháls in Iceland, and if you ask my husband, he will tell you the same thing. If you ever go to Iceland, make time to do this, seriously. The whole country is beyond amazing to drive around and do all the touristy attractions and waterfalls, but this hike was so much better than that and like I said, the absolute best thing I have ever done.
Spring is definitely in the air around here in Utah! That is, until it snows again like it inevitably does every year. But until then, I’m going to be soaking up the good weather and getting in as many hikes as I can!
The waterfalls around the Wasatch are always the best in the spring (hello snowmelt) so I usually make it my goal to hit as many as possible before the flow slows down again. So, in my opinion, here are the 7 best spring waterfall hikes (in no particular order) to make it to before the summer!
As you may know, when we went to Los Angeles for a weekend a few weeks ago, we didn’t have anything planned and pretty much winged it most of the time – exploring the city, ducking into interesting shops, and taking it easy. We did end up doing some fun things (besides food & Harry Potter World), so I thought I’d make a little list so you can pick and choose for your next trip to La La Land!
This past weekend, Colby and I got back from our second trip to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in California, so I figured it’s high time I wrote a blog post about it. Even though this version of Harry Potter World isn’t as big or as detailed as the one in Florida (so I hear), it’s still amazing in its own right and I would still rather visit Hogwarts than Disneyland. It’s true.
The first time we went, in May 2016, it was just a month after the Hollywood Wizarding World had opened, and our second visit was just a few days ago (in February 2017). Our February trip was less crowded, but honestly, not by much. Both times we had an amazing experience and just like last time, I can’t wait to go back! So, let’s dive in!
If you ever find yourself on a plane heading to the land of fire and ice, make sure you’re planning on roadtripping the southern coast of Iceland. The south coast is one of the most tourist-y parts of the country, but for good reason! There are so many cool things along this route that you don’t want to miss.
