So I'm going to Iceland!

Truth.

You know I done bought myself a passport for Valentine's Day (gee whiz I'm so good to me), and I had my heart set on the northern European region as my first destination. So I poked around on the Internet a bit (and by that I mean I neurotically stalked flight prices, scoured travel blogs, obsessively pinned photos to my travel board, made a Google doc called "Travel is my boyfriend", etc.) and....my heart said Iceland!


I think the following pics should aptly sum up why these travel plans are making my heart do the Dougie in my chest:













...did I make the right choice, or did I make the right choice?

You can bet I'll be rambling about this here and there for the next couple months. And if you've been to Iceland, do tell! I want to hear all your juicy secrets. Or unjuicy secrets. Whatevs. Basically I've been riding one big adrenaline rush for the last few hours since I clicked "Purchase." Combined with the bowl of Trix I voraciously ate earlier, it's probably the best high there is.

I don't know if you read "A Blog About Love", but they just did a trip to Iceland.

Have you seen "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty"? If not, you must. Today. You may thank me later.
Also, congrats on your first international excursion!

I used to be in the ward of this family in NYC that just went to Iceland last year - it sounded awesome. Here's the links to their Iceland posts:

What a grand adventure- and of course you chose right! And 100 points for "doing the Dougie in my chest" - cause that's the best thing I may have ever read on a blog.

Melanie said...

Yay, good for you! I second seeing The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. I also like the travel blog Alex in Wanderland; she went to Iceland a year or so ago.

Good for you!

I hope that you get to see & do EVERYTHING in those pictures and more on your trip! :)

AHHHHH I am SO jealous! Iceland is totally my dream travel place. I love that you want to do things, and you do them. So cool. You'll have the greatest time! Also, have you seen the Secret Life of Walter Mitty? It will give you the travel bug even more :)

Iceland is one of my DREAMS! I am so excited you get to go! (By the way, I just found your blog and I am in love with your writing.) Go watch the video "Holocene" by Bon Iver. It is filmed in Iceland and it is one of the most beautiful videos I have ever seen. Just be sure to mute it for a second or two at 1:02 ;) ENJOY! And good luck planning!!!

That's one of the places in Europe I've always wanted to go (along with the Faroe Islands), but have never gotten around to going for whatever reasons. I wish I was going too!
