Currently we are spending our 6th day in our new apartment, in a new city of a country we have never lived before.
This is our brand new life with so much new impressions that we are just floating on both marvelous and frightening ambivalent waves of feelings.
This quote tells everything I’m feeling about Northern countries.
Doesn’t matter how much I love palm trees, swimming in the warm sea, sunbathing on the soft sand and feeling the rays of sun on my skin… It will never change anything about my passion about far away places up North…
“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.:)
