I’ve wanted to go ever since a friend who reads a lot of Iceland crime thrillers wanted to do a layover on our way to Ireland three years ago (has it been three years????). That didn’t work out but it stuck with me. The more I read about it, the more pictures I saw, the more I wanted to go.
Many other trips are still on the list but Iceland kept calling, kept bumping itself up to the top of the list, every time I thought a different trip would win out Iceland would bully itself up to the front of the line again. I would see something on the tv or read see a magazine cover and again I would be reminded of Iceland. With such persistence it seems that Iceland is the one. I wanted to go last year but left it too late, this year it’s booked, I’m going. The others will have to wait.
With my life being settled but not exactly as I would like, a trip to a far away place to see some amazing scenery should clear my head. Perhaps in Iceland I will start to form a plan of my next steps, figure out which way to go and how long the journey will be. Transition takes time and patience but once you find the path at least you know you’re on your way.
It’s what I love about travel, it always seems to open up possibilities beyond the trip.
Also I get to go to the Blue Lagoon and several other hot springs as well along the tour. I love a hot spring and I can’t wait to go and soak in the Blue Lagoon and forget about everything back home, if only for a little while.
