Strokkur: Explosive Experience Along the Golden Circle of Iceland

Explosive Experience Along the Golden Circle of Iceland
Today is one of those days that I get to spend some considerable amount of time on the web. Not that I don’t on other days of the week, but today’s quite different, because I join the bandwagon of well-informed people here to do non-work stuff during actual work hours. All thanks to Trump (United States) and Kim (North Korea), because every single one of us in our office area right now are too busy being relevant and discussing the most appropriate topic of all: Trump-Kim Summit

In case you haven’t heard, it’s history in the making! And since I know you might also want to steer away from too much serious history session, let’s have CNN tackle that for us, right? 

Let’s just relax our minds and alleviate any tension of thinking about too much world news and just focus on the world. How about some travel friendly news: the Strokkur – the most famous Icelandic geyser known to everyone.

bowdywanders.com Singapore Travel Blog Philippines Photo :: Iceland ::  Strokkur: Explosive Experience Along the Golden Circle of Iceland

Sometimes known as The Great Geysir, this geyser in southwestern Iceland is all about eruption times and hot waters. It can hurl boiling water up to 70 metres in the air, probably a comical version of a waterfall, except that geysirs periodically spout hot spring waters. As soon as we arrived in the Geysir area, we have received words of warnings about the dangers of being too close to the geysers, of not following rules, and of potential deaths

Apparently, we have not heard of a man completely dissolving after falling into this acidic spring – good thing it did not exactly happen in this particular geyser, but it was a wake-up reminder to every one of us. So much so, we walked so slow and observed every inch of the area before walking and following the map. 

We could see people flying around and falling flat on the ground due to the icy and slippery floor bed, so we just walked like lethargic snails with big cameras strapped on our bodies. The Strokkur belongs to the Haukadalur valley area, where various other geothermal feature such as mud pools, fumaroles and other geysers are located around it, so we were stoked to see them all.

This geyser island in the Geyser Geothermal Area is in fact the greatest active geyser, that erupts more regularly than any other geyser – at least around five to ten minutes on average. Since it was winter season when we visited, we could barely feel the hot air, but we could clearly see the evaporating water smoke coming off from the natural beauty of the area. 

You could see the ground’s color pallet full of yellows, greens, and red, despite the snowy layers. These colors are the elements within the main geothermal area such as sulfur, copper, and iron. I’ve never seen such a thing this close, so it was pretty cool view!

After hanging around the area, with the rest of the travelers surrounding the Strokkur, we decided to visit the nearby restaurant, café, hotel, and luxury gift shop that was just across. Inside, we decided to grab lunch and enjoy the views seen from the outside of their massive windows. 

What’s cool is the fact that we heard that they are actually offering a truly unique ‘hot spring bread’ experience, where visitors assist a chef to boil eggs outside in a hot spring, and dig up rye bread that has been ‘baking’ underground for 24 hours

Good thing there isn’t any entrance fee when visiting the Haukadalur geothermal area, so people can probably spend a few dollars to experience such unique travel offering. I sure would like to try this when I go back here, perhaps during summer time, picnic? :-)

Gullfoss Waterfall in Winter: Impressive and Insane, Only in Iceland


bowdywanders.com Singapore Travel Blog Philippines Photo :: Iceland ::  Gullfoss Waterfall in Winter: Impressive and Insane, Only in Iceland
Gullfoss Waterfall in Winter
Imagining myself falling of the immense waterfall and freezing like a popsicle stick, I did not move for a few short minutes when we started parking our car near Gullfoss. It was quite difficult not to think of the idea, since everything looks white, and you wouldn’t exactly easily decrypt the difference between an allowed walkway to a dangerous area, not unless you are actually alive and alert – which of course isn’t exactly the case for me.

If you have been sleep deprived three nights in a row, being alive and alert aren’t your big priorities in life. Imagination can run wild, and you can be caught looking like a zombie full of anxieties instead of looking like an ever-ready traveler full of adventure!

But of course, after our long travel from Reykjavik to Gullfoss, which took around 2 hours - 117.8 km via Þjóðvegur 1 and Biskupstungnabraut, I tossed out of my fears, and acted like a cool dude feeling happy to have finally arrived at the Golden Falls, one of the most impressive waterfalls in Iceland.

bowdywanders.com Singapore Travel Blog Philippines Photo :: Iceland ::  Gullfoss Waterfall in Winter: Impressive and Insane, Only in Icelandbowdywanders.com Singapore Travel Blog Philippines Photo :: Iceland ::  Gullfoss Waterfall in Winter: Impressive and Insane, Only in Iceland

Known for having a wide curved three-step "staircase", the Gullfoss waterfall’s edge is obscured from view, so that it appears that the river simply vanishes into the earth. What’s more mind boggling though is that it looks way different during the winter season – it looks like a 3D art scene. My numb-from-cold mind was trying to translate and appreciate what I was seeing – the winter waterfall = so impressive and insane! I was walking so slow and watching my step because I don’t want my Go Pro to fall into the snow chasm, especially since the time we visited was a bit windy also!

The waterfall’s crevice shows its calm demeanor, as we followed the trail to reach one side of the waterfall. I couldn’t quite recognize the river connected because everything looks white, my eyes were playing tricks on me. It looks so untouched, it’s beautiful in its most raw form. You’ll like how it does not look so touristy in that sense, because it’s left intact.

Although there were shy ropes, small warnings, and walking trails here and there, the overall vicinity looks overwhelming in winter. As I was seeing the place, I started to understand why, with Þingvellir and the geysers of Haukadalur, Gullfoss is a must do for everyone who visits Iceland.

bowdywanders.com Singapore Travel Blog Philippines Photo :: Iceland ::  Gullfoss Waterfall in Winter: Impressive and Insane, Only in Iceland


Fact is, the average temperature in Iceland is around 1 – 2 °C (33 - 35° F) in wintertime and around 12 °C (54 °F) in summer. This means that the Gullfoss freezes in winter and looks way different during summer. Of course, depending on what kind of experience you are looking from, and depending on where you are from, you may want to see the Gullfoss on both seasons.

In summer, I’ve heard that the Gullfoss provides an excellent contrast of colors – if you are lucky, you’ll even see rainbows and thousands of crowds. Also, you can walk around at least 20 - 30 minutes to get the entire view in. Who can say no to that, yes? In winter, during the time we visited, there were no rough water steams and some of the walking trails were closed, so there were only certain areas where we were able to maximize our viewing experience. I didn’t see it as something limited, but it gave us a chance to really just focus on enjoying the waterfall and not doing so much of activities. While I’ve learned that winter time is always great to cuddle up indoors over a nice cup of drink, it’s still a special experience to visit an iced waterfall landmark like Gullfoss in Iceland.

June 2018: Newly Visited Nearby Cafes & Bars in Singapore
June is the official sixth month of the year, and interestingly enough, it has the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, the day with the most daylight hours, and the winter solstice in the Southern Hemisphere, the day with the fewest daylight hours. June is also known by most people because of Father's Day. Did you know that June is the only month of the year that no month begins on the same day of the week? Enough about June trivia, as this month’s newly visited coffee places and hang out waste-your-time chatting places are here – good for brunch, early afternoon coffee conversations, and study places, and weekday go to places for you.  We all know that the hunt for the best brunch spots in town will always be a thing in Singapore, because yes, everyone here takes their coffee and cafes seriously, and no one is feeling lazy for doing so.  For the month of June, here are the places you can and should enjoy your cuppa joes!

The TWO bakers TYB ($13.80) was a pulled pork sandwich made from tau yu bak (braised pork in soy sauce) served on ciabatta and topped with a sunny side up. The pork meat was extremely tender and moist and in fact it was almost effortless to chew it. It was also redolent of a robust braising sauce. While I didn’t think the fried egg made any difference to the sandwich (I’d probably prefer braised hard-boiled eggs that are diced up and mixed with the pork), I did enjoy the runny yolk. I mean, who doesn’t right? The fries (seemed freshly cut) were just seasoned in salt and pepper and overall tasted a little weak but there were chilli sauce and ketchup to help ourselves to so they were still alright. The side salad of rocket leaves was just tossed in balsamic vinaigrette. I really enjoyed this dish because of its fusion factor. Normally we’d eat tau yu bak with steamed bun (as in kong bak bao) but would never think of combining it with ciabatta to make it into a western delight. Surprisingly, it really worked beautifully. Did I also mention the ciabatta bread was airy, pillowy and really soft with a slight chew? This is a sandwich I’d come back for.

Sun Ray Café is one of the nominees for Best Café. While it is possibly the most unknown or smallest in scale amongst all in the list, this little café at Serangoon Garden Estate has left very positive impressions for my co-judge Chef Judy Koh and me. We were secretly rooting for it, though it didn’t win in the end. One of Sun Ray’s biggest appeals is that it is pets-friendly (NEA-licensed). The café is divided into two main rooms – the left for pets with their owners, and the other, well for just the humans. So if you happen to be allergic to say animal-fur, the cafe is divided into two parts. Some came with their children, some spent their afternoons away typing on their laptop. Getting to its location at Brighton Crescent posed to be quite a bit of a challenge, a number of bus stops away from Serangoon Central, in the middle of rich men’ terrace houses. But I am glad I finally made it there. Read the full review here: http://danielfooddiary.com/2013/11/29/sunraycafe/

The ambiance of the two storey establishment is impeccably executed. The peeling and flaking walls are perfectly imperfect, while lamps with industrial accents add a cool glow to the space. Furniture, cutlery, and even the staff belonged. The 1925 Brewing Co. is a that watering hole that’s so much more than about getting tipsy with your friends. It’s a place to enjoy everything there is about craft beer. The food and cocktails have been created around the flavours of the beers, with some using the beers themselves and even byproducts of the brewing process. Not all the beers brewed at The 1925 Brewing Co. are made the same. With some having attained a level of exclusivity because of the ingredients used, and made only available once a year.

Cafes have become the opposite of quaint and idyllic, most of them have long queues, people snapping photos and are filled with too many people for comfort. Thankfully, we found this gem of a cafe offering us absolute peace and quiet on a weekday afternoon. With one of the largest selection of premium teas I have ever seen in any cafe, you’ll be set for a comfortable afternoon on one of Carry On cafe’s lounge chairs with a good book in your hands.  We recommend the London Fog ($6), an earl grey latte with hints of coconut milk and lavender. The drink had the full bodied flavor of earl grey without it being overpowered by the coconut milk, perfectly balanced and comforting for the soul.

If you’re an avid fan of Korean variety shows and dramas, you’d be familiar with Dal.komm Coffee. This cafe first made its appearance in episode 249 on Running Man before appearing a couple of times in the hit drama – Descendants of the Sun. The love story between a soldier and a doctor was so captivating that viewerships soared sky-high for this drama. The highly remembered scene at Dal.komm Coffee must be in episode 2 of DOTS, where Kang Mo-Yeon and Yoo Shi-Jin broke up without having really been together. The other popular scene is in episode 6 where Dal.komm Coffee appeared as part of a flashback scene when Yoon Myeong-Joo and Seo Dae-Young were happily dating.

The Food With a Kitchen at the back of the café, the food menu is not huge but sufficient enough, with casual selections such as sandwiches, pastas and sides like fries with beef bolognese and crispy chicken wings. We also tried the Drip (S$4) coffee, which I personally enjoyed more. I had the Speakeasy blend, a mix of Brazil and Guatemala coffee this season which is medium-bodied and has a nice balance of cocoa and nuts flavours. Will I Return Again? What’s not to love about good coffee, moreover a local brand? The café scene has visibly slowed down the past one year and it’s a case of the survival of the fittest. Liberty coffee definitely has the means to last through, at least we enjoyed the coffee.

Group Therapy Cafe strikes me as having stood the test of time, although I think the quality dished out at their Duxton Hill branch is better than of the Katong V branch. I was wondering if I would see familiar faces at the Katong V branch, but I did not on my visit some weeks back. The look and feel of this Katong V branch is quite different. At Katong V, Group Therapy Cafe is located at the basement, which is a bit surprising since most cafes are about ambience, natural lighting etc. Still, if you’re not there to take a gazillion food photos, the lighting probably wouldn’t bother you like it bothered me.

Ambience at Supply & Demand is one of the highlights. Industrial chic meets faux greenery, with an eclectic mix of furnishings that resemble both a European countryside home, as well as a streetside cafe. Along with warm decorative lights, wooden shelves lined with books and bottles of wine, faux trees, faux lawn carpets, soft leaf green cushions, and a open kitchen, Supply & Demand exudes a comfortable feel, the sort of place you can linger and pass the day. Love the place! Read the full review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.com/2015/12/supply-demand.html

Lavender

Creamery’s menu comprises mainly of their signature lava cookies which are basically, freshly baked cookies with lava fillings. Upon setting the scoop of ice cream on the cookie, a molten lava effect is created with the filling oozing out onto the pan. Always having a penchant for all things matcha, we went for the Monster Matcha ($8.90) topped with a scoop of Earl Grey ice cream.
