Who is the Red Head Explorer?

On the way to Mt. Everest Base Camp

Hi, I am Sigurður Björgvinsson, but call me Siggi, Shiva, Samir or CK. I have many names depending where in the world I am. It can be sometimes be complicated for people to say my real name (I wonder why?).


I am originally a Red Head from Iceland but I have spent most of my last few years everywhere but Iceland. I have been in a lot of adventures and had some great experiences during my travels. I have lived in an orphanage in Nepal, been to Mt. Everest Base Camp and seen a volcano in Iceland just to name a few.


I am always going new places and filling my passport with stamps from every country in the world. I simply can´t stay in the same place for long, I need to see the world. Travelling is what I love to do and I hope that you will enjoy reading my travel stories and look at my photos I have taken on the way.

Another video from Kathmandu, Nepal. Cows are holy in Nepal and they can just sit on the middle of the road without anybody bothering them.
