Travel Moments: Shannon of SoleSeeking One night in Skógar, Iceland, I was sharing a hostel dorm with a Chinese family. Three generations were present – the grandma, parents and the young child. The grandmother watched me admiringly as I brushed my hair in the mirror. The parents nodded a shy ‘hello’ at me. The little girl stared at me curiously as I re-filled my backpack. In the...
