Irritable Bowel Syndrome ( IBS ) also known as a Functional Gut Disorder is a benign condition that affects about 15% of people worldwide.
The condition is not life threatening and it does not increase risks of developing bowel malignancies or any other more serious Gastro – Intestinal (GI) Disease, but IBS symptoms can severely reduce quality of life and sufferers often report being unable to leave the house for fear of not getting to the toilet in time, or having a bout of severe abdominal pain.
From 18/09/15 to 27/09/15 we travelled around Iceland’s Ring Road in a Camper Van.
September is a great time to visit Iceland since in the shoulder season prices are lower, there are less people on the road, and there is still plenty of day light but there is also a good chance of seeing the elusive Northern Lights since the nights are getting longer and temperatures are still mild. We spent 9 days in Iceland with 7 night sleeping in our Camper Van and our last 2 nights in a hotel in Iceland’s Capital Reykjavik. Iceland’s Ring Road, also known as Route 1, encircles the entire Country, covering about 800 miles of good tarmac road, and many of the main attractions are on the Ring Road or a short distance off it. We did not have a 4 wheel drive and therefore we drove only on Route 1 or used other equally good roads. Read also my posts on our amazing road trip.
