Going on a trip…


Leaving this evening on a jet plane. So i most likely will be absent here… unless a lull happens. And boredom seeps in and i need mental stimulation and an outlet for my thoughts! (I will miss this place. And you.)

Since i over plan our trips, researching our destination, i gather lots of information. Here are a few of my favorite articles:

The Coffee of Civilization in Iceland

The magical and the elemental, from Halldรณr Laxness

A Book Lover’s Guide to Iceland

Reykjavik’s Laugavegur Best Shopping Street

And then, the most important question to ask, “What to wear while traveling Iceland?”

The Ultimate Packing List for Iceland

Finally, to get in the mood… Extreme Iceland: Music

My favorite song discovered (so far):

And a few more added to my iPhone Iceland Playlist…

Oh… and photographs. Yes, i bought a wide-angle lens for scenic vistas and rented a fish-eye lens for the Northern Lights. My daughter has given great advice regarding my photographing obsession and i will take it to heart… look up from your camera and soak it all in with eyes of a child. Here, the magic of life begins.

Iceland will be art to me. A washing of my soul, and a renewed mind, to tackle life in Massachusetts. Feeling blessed beyond belief to be alive. Do not give up… goodness exists.

Catch you on the other side of next week! โœˆ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ธโœŒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿณ ๐Ÿ‘ ๐ŸŽ

  1. Dear Jeanne, hope you had a great time. I’m so looking forward to seeing the Aurora photos. Your website has changed. I think I liked the previous version better where I could go to previous or next post. It keeps telling me I must subscribe, which I have, but didn’t let me post a comment. Now I’m posting this comment through the reader. Hope it finds you, ๐Ÿ™‚ x

    1. Thanks for reading Sebnem and commenting. I love comments!!! But sorry the new format is being difficult. Hmmm… i like the look of this one. And paid for it because of the look. Argh! But i did not realize it was being a pain. Let me reach out to WP and ask about this. How to fix the issue, if possible. May take a while. There is much to do after my trip and still unpacking the move to our new home. Feel settled but unsettled. ๐Ÿ˜˜โค๏ธ ๐Ÿค—

    1. Thank you. It was soooo good. I would return for an encore. Or two. Perhaps three. My cup is runneth over from the experience. Words elude me how to express my heart at the moment. My mind has been on a whirlwind tour of Icelandโ€™s southern coast and Reykjavik. There is so much i missed. And want to experience what i did enjoy, over and over. Spectacular! Magical! Mystical! ๐Ÿด๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒ‹๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ

    1. That is good to know Andrew… my blog feels like a second heart and mind… and often otherโ€™s blogs… a home away from home.
