LOOK: Megan Young, Mikael Daez conquer Iceland
Actress and Miss World 2013 Megan Young and her boyfriend, actor Mikael Daez, flew out of the country to revel in the beauty of Iceland.
The couple has taken to social media to document their trip for their fans and their photos are enough to induce envy. Young posted a picture last April 23 to mark the first day of their Iceland tour. In the photo, Young can be seen holding a camera in her hand while she grasped Daez’s hand in the other.
“We didn’t know what to expect with the weather. We knew it would be cold – but that’s about it,” she said via Instagram. “We weren’t sure with the gear we needed for our hikes so we decided to ask around. Everyone we asked was so helpful…”

Day 1 of our Iceland tour. We didn't know what to expect with the weather. We knew it would be cold – but that's about it. We weren't sure with the gear we needed for our hikes so we decided to ask around. Everyone we asked was so helpful. From giving us a run down of the base layers we needed to what kind of material our clothes needed to be. After a day of going around, I can happily say that my toes are warm and I don't need to worry about the cold ❄️😍❄️
Despite initially worrying about the cold, Young shared in another post that there was enough sun to make walking around enjoyable.
“The wind was still a bit strong though,” she said on April 24. “I was messaging a friend and a quote she mentioned was: ‘There’s no bad weather, only inappropriate clothing’ hahaha!”

Yesterday was a lucky day ☀️ the sun was shining and we got to enjoy walking around more. The wind was still a bit strong though. I was messaging a friend and a quote she mentioned was: "There's no bad weather, only inappropriate clothing" hahaha! All I can say is that my jacket is the BEST piece of clothing that I packed – it's kept me safe from the wind and warm from the cold 💙 @thenorthfaceph
She also shared a photo of the aurora borealis she was able to glimpse, snapped just before they were to retire to bed.
“I [quickly] went out in the cold and took a couple snaps with my phone. This is the best I could do with my phone but to me it’s probably one of the most memorable photos of this trip,” she gushed.

Just as we were heading to bed, someone noticed that there was something in the sky. I quicky went out in the cold and took a couple snaps with my phone. This is the best I could do with my phone but to me it's probably one of the most memorable photos of this trip. I didn't think we'd even see a little bit of the northern lights and many people advised us that they might not even show at all. So this is definitely a treat for our trip to Iceland 😍🙏🏻❤️
Young added she did not think they would get to see a bit of the northern lights while in Iceland, thus making the unexpected sighting one of the highlights of their trip.

The couple channeled their inner outdoorsman and went on adventures Young didn’t think she would be able to do, such as hiking up mountains.
They also shared sweet moments and fooled around as they had their photos taken by the black beach, as shared by Daez via his own Instagram on April 28.

You’re probably wondering how I ended up in this situation. ⠀ ⠀ Photo 1 – As you can clearly see, @meganbata has some malicious intentions in store for me. That is a face reserved for some serious vengeance⠀ ⠀ Photo 2 – This is just a short clip before the madness that I received. I cannot reveal the aftermath of her rage because it is NSFW⠀ ⠀ Photo 3 – So this is what happened. Madam Bonez was adamant that we take a good photo by the black beach and I was willing…or so she thought⠀ ⠀ Photo 4 – Being the dork that I am, I swiftly turned around and gave the camera my signature, “kick the air and poke the sky” pose. And with that, her rage was stoked and this origins of the first photo has been told.⠀ ⠀ But on another note, I do have a new, super cool vlog that I just posted and Madam Bonez is a part of it too. Link in the bio!⠀ ⠀ #DoNotAngerMadamBonez #BawiBawiPagMayTime #NasaIcelandKayaMabilisLumamigAngUlo
Prior to Iceland, the couple also enjoyed a few days in Brussels, Belgium with Daez’s sister Chiara and her husband.
There they received the warmest welcome in the form of Belgian waffles and delicious home cooked meals. JB
