There was no doubt that Iceland wasn’t beautiful, But you weren’t here for scenery. Actually, there was a Hydra base here. It had been spotted by the local authorities and not taken seriously. But when the officer who reported it went missing it was something the team couldn’t ignore.

Ever since you and Bucky had got together Steve always put you two together on missions. He trusted the two of you to look after each other while he would stay with some of the least capable S.H.I.E.L.D agents. And, even though you weren’t an official Avenger, you were treated as such.

The base was small. Only two people needed to be there, so you and Bucky were chosen.

‘We got any coffee, darlin’?’ you had just got out of the shower, quickly slipping into your favourite shirt and shorts (AKA bucky’s shirt and some clean boxers). You were walking into the tiny kitchen when you saw Bucky bent over, head stuck in one of the cupboards. His ass was stuck out and you couldn’t resist yourself. Taking your right hand, you swung it as far back as you could. Bringing it down harshly on his backside, you heard a slap then a small yelp from the supersoldier. You giggled as he turned to find you, your arms resting across your body; right hand covering your mouth.

This appears to be another week with “lots of new travel videos from Iceland”. That is usually not a bad thing. In this one, travel along with this videographer as they explore the road around the island. Original caption:

A road trip is an amazing experience. Everyone should do it atleast once, but it isn’t always easy.

Hana and I travelled around the ring road for 10 days capturing the beautiful landscapes of Iceland through every weather condition you could think of. Whilst on the road, the two of us experienced heightened emotions – we were scared, happy, nervously panicking at random points during our trip… we drove under the sunshine, through a blizzard, climbed a mountain as it hailed, rained… we cried, laughed and loved every moment in this beautiful country. This experience was emotionally draining yet rewarding in so many ways. Documenting our journey was incredible and we can’t wait to share it with all of you. We hope you enjoy how we experienced Iceland in this travel journal of ours – 10 days, One road.

This video delivers what the title promises - explore a land of black rock as you switch colors, from blue to red to green and everything inbetween.

Short drone movie from our amazing road-trip through Icelandic highlands - the remote but breathtaking parts of this spectacular island. It was my 9th trip to Iceland and I finally managed to bring a drone there and capture this beauty from the air.
