In Focus: Iceland Winter Weekend P.1

Reykjavic002

Partners Bryon Williams and Steve Ellingson consider themselves hobby photographers. But their modest self-description doesn’t do their work justice. The duo travelled with Out Adventures on the 2017 Iceland Winter Weekend and captured the country’s crisp, clean aesthetic with as much style as any professional.

In the first of a two-part series, Bryon and Steve showcase Reykjavik’s cosmopolitan cityscape; from it’s modern architecture such as the Lutheran Church ‘Hallgrímskirkja’ to its simplistic, Scandinavian housing. Take your time browsing their photos and be sure to come back Monday for the second part of the series focusing on Iceland’s unique countryside.

Americans Visiting Cuba: 5 Things To Know

Trinidad

On June 16, 2017, Donald Trump announced a number of changes to Obama’s relaxed engagement with Cuba.

“Effective immediately, I am cancelling the last administration’s completely one-sided deal with Cuba,” said Trump in Miami, Florida. He stated Americans, “will not be silent in the face of communist oppression any longer,” then signed a document sanctioning Americans from conducting business with Cuban military-owned or -operated organizations amongst other changes.

After the announcement, The Department of Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control, released an online FAQ guide highlighting the restrictions expected to change. We’ve compiled the five biggest takeaways from this document, as they pertain to American passport holders who want to visit Cuba.

He’s always the first to snorkel the Silfra fissure. The first suited up and into the Blue Lagoon before you’ve started to strip. And he’ll finish his first pint before you’ve screamed “Skál”.

Since he’s a a massive part of this August’s Iceland Pride Adventure, we had him over (okay, we Skyped) to let him introduce himself.
