In early August 2015, I left my hometown of Sofia with the concept to go to Iceland. I didn’t take a flight nor did I take the ferry – I took the general public transport to the ring street of town and there, on the final cease of bus quantity 54, my journey began.
I hitchhiked by way of complete Europe and upon my arrival within the UK took the airplane to the dream vacation spot which this island was presupposed to be. There I’ve spent two months, alone, in quest of completely different viewpoints, exploring emotions and feelings, placing up forward some small and large objectives and attempting to fulfil them. Strolling or hitchhiking for greater than 9700km, sleeping in a tent nearly each night time far-off from public tenting grounds, spending not more than 7€ per day, I’ve loved photographing among the most superb landscapes I’ve ever seen and had a great deal of unforgettable moments – it was price it, Iceland didn’t fail the expectations.

Travelling is one thing superb but, as many different issues in life, it begins to get a bit unproductive if one does it aimlessly. Due to this fact I’ve determined that I may do extra than simply exploring and roaming round on this journey. Two major objectives had been set:
#1 LIVE WITH AS LESS AS POSSIBLE with out being disadvantaged of the requirements however on the identical time leaving the pointless behind. Low-budget travelling was one thing I used to be “preaching” about for a very long time and Iceland, as one of the costly international locations on the planet, appeared to be a superb alternative to show or disprove my concepts.
Normally, there are three major bills when one travels – for transportation, for shelter and for meals.
• TRANSPORTATION: After I wasn’t trekking, I used to be hitchhiking and when it didn’t go effectively, I used to be simply strolling alongside the street, typically for complete days.
• SHELTER: Tenting is what I’ve finished more often than not. I’ve slept in my tent for 49 nights out of 57 on the island. I’ve additionally spent two nights CouchSurfing and stayed just a few occasions at a buddies’ place utilizing the benefits of fashionable science – a washer and a scorching tub.
• FOOD: I used to be cooking nearly all of my meals on a gasoline range. In some unspecified time in the future, my food plan turned fairly strict – pasta with pesto for lunch and dinner, nuts for breakfast. On the finish of my journey, I stayed in some cities which allowed me to do some dumpster diving.
For the 2 months spent on the island the I’ve spent round 400€, which makes up for round 7€ a day. To be trustworthy, typically I used to be lacking a scorching bathe, however aside from that I didn’t really feel disadvantaged of something. Ultimately, if that is finished another way, it may price approach much less and even be utterly free and nonetheless be effective by way of private consolation.
#2 SHARE. Regardless of the medium, will or not it’s pictures, video, writing, drawing, speaking – I believed I’ve stored too many tales and conclusions to myself from my previous journeys.
