A JOURNEY IS LIKE MARRIAGE

THE CERTAIN WAY TO BE WRONG IS TO THINK YOU CONTROL IT

Stefan & Ursula

 

 

  • See and experience places you would otherwise miss on foot or travelling by bus

  • Make the most of your stay in Reykjavik

►Great quote:

It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.

- Ernest Hemingway
