Our Global Correspondent and Iceland native Hannes Pálsson grew up in the absence of  TVs and computers during his childhood leading him to a live of exploration and real-world experiences. This sense of adventure has propelled him to visit over 30 countries thus far and join  Pink Iceland, the country’s only LGBT tour company. We spoke to him about his love of Iceland and his passion for travel, and we selected his journeys as this month’s Parting Shots in our magazine. Here’s the expanded story and more of his photos.

1. Why do you love to travel?

My favorite thing about traveling in Iceland as opposed to my usual city breaks is the feeling of constant awe. I love the fact that I am made to feel small, humbled, by Mother Nature, rather than human achievement. Never have I felt more connected to something greater than the sum of human achievement than when traveling around Iceland

2. How far in advance do you plan your trips?

I seldom plan more than a couple of months in advance and more often then not I get sent a good deal and end up panic booking hotels for the following week!

3. Who do you travel with?

I love traveling on my own but I tend to travel more with my partner or my friends these days. I also try to go on holiday with my extended family every two or three years. Read on for the rest of the interview and for some gorgeous photos of Iceland!

Gazing at the sun in the Westman Islands

Meet our newest correspondent Hannes Pálsson.

Hannes was born and bred in Iceland at a time when there was little else to do but develop a sense of adventure. The absence of  TVs and computers during his childhood meant that Hannes grew up feeling like there was always something to explore and experience. This sense of adventure has propelled him to visit over 30 countries thus far. Since joining Pink Iceland, he hasn’t had much time to travel as his time is now spent designing and planning other people’s travel or weddings in Iceland.

While Hannes is a meticulous planner he very strongly believes in embracing the unplanned adventures every holiday seems to spring on him. From being mistaken for a reporter in Prague and subsequently interviewing an Oscar nominee to winning a prize for best fake orgasm in front of a room full of theater-goers in New York he tries never to miss an opportunity to experience something new.
