“Iceland, fortunate isle! Our beautiful, bountiful mother!
Where are your fortune and fame, freedom and virtue of old?
All things on earth are transient: the days of your greatness and glory
flicker like flames in the night, far in the depths of the past.
Comely and fair was the country, crested with snow-covered glaciers,
azure and empty the sky, ocean resplendently bright.”
I’ve started my journey full of expectations, hoping it won’t be less interesting as my last year one. And no, I can certainly tell you, I’ve got more of everything. I have answers for questions I have never asked and have all the extra energy in my soul and in my veins.
Let me tell you about this fairytale. Because endless green landscapes, bright blue skies, selfless kindness and never-ending surprises are reality somewhere far away… in a land called Iceland.
Just a quick good-bye message before I’m heading to Iceland for my 3 weeks adventure!
I’m super excited and can’t believe this is really about to happen.
My 70 + 10l backpack is 120% full and my back is hurting already!;P But come on, for me, that’s a big progress. One backpack + me + 3 weeks… I overcame of the urge to take all my useless stuff with me.
Peace & Love!
I am getting super excited about our Iceland adventure as there is only 1 week left!
Can not believe that! Still so many things to do and organize… But of course there is always time to evoke some memories from my last year’s trip. It’s a shame I didn’t make video blog about every days of my journey, but still so much fun and emotions to watch those few ones again.
I can almost smell the fresh air and feel the rain on my skin, not to mention all that excitement and energy boost! Reminds me to be a better blogger this time and take as many photos & videos as possible and write about all those wonderful impressions.
Forgive me my funny accent and the bad quality of the video.:)
Video blogging Iceland, Arnarstapi, June 2013
Travelling is a passion, craving to see more, to discover the hidden secrets, to talk to people you’ve never met before, to laugh like crazy and wake up in a new place with the greatest feeling inside, that today is just yours. Today you can do things you were just dreaming about yesterday and you’ll fill your day with sweet memories and learn a tiny bit more of you, about the person you really are.
Today was a dark, cold, rainy day that made want to sleep all day. So it was kind of frustrating that I couldn’t really enjoy my bed as I had to wait for the alarm guy to fix the system. The good news is that my apartment is now safer than the National Bank, but my mood stayed blue and lazy.
The most I did today was preparing pancake breakfast, pancake soup for lunch…. and actually I had few later as snack… No comment. Really. My diet is so much not working lately. I eat burger, or bacon, or pancakes… or all these together!:P
I’m back home, but honestly, I have to tell you all, I’m just so happy, because managed to make the most from my last 2 days!
I didn’t give up on my dream about going to Grimsey island and crossing the Arctic Circle!
It was really a special feeling and the perfect proof to believe I can make my dreams come true and if things don’t turn up the way they should, I can easily go for them again… and finally, if you are patient and strong, you get where you want to and get whatever you’d love. It wasn’t a question that it worth it!
