- / Why I love Iceland
Lonely Planet and 3 Mobile team up for a sponsored travel series
As I fumbled with frozen fingers for another mouthful of trail mix I thought, I don't even like trail mix. But up here on an Icelandic glacier, sustenance was key to survival. That and keeping the talent alive, for we were filming travel blogger Macca Sherifi who was actually climbing the glacier, roped into a harness and attacking the ice with picks. Hey, I shouted across the frozen expanse, can you reposition the GoPro? He did, and along with the crew's own daredevil shooting skills the result is this film that formed part of a sponsored series with Lonely Planet and 3 Mobile.
The segment also aired in episode 4 of Lonely Planet Travels – a travel show I helped launch and produce with the Lonely Planet team.
