As a hypnotherapist and author blending my love of words, writing and inspiring people with my passion for Iceland´s nature and special places is stupendous. I had longed to come to Iceland since childhood, in 2010 I booked my trip of a lifetime. Mine was the last ever flight delayed by Eyjafjallajökull, after a nervous night, I was on my way! Within a couple of hours, I knew this was no ordinary vacation, Iceland had spun a magic web around me. In 2012 I relocated to Iceland.

May in Iceland is a really special time to visit. Nature is coming alive very rapidly now, spring and even early summer flowers are increasingly flourishing, the trees and grass are usually turning greener by the day.

When the sun shines the long bright days of May are so magnificent - everything just feels so vibrant and fully alive. No wonder many Icelanders say this is their favorite time of year!
