As we entered a new year one of my New Years resolutions was to try to be more active on my blog. But for some reason the inspiration seem to have left me. It’s not because I don’t have anything to share, we have done a few things which I would like to show you, but every time I sit down by my computer and try to write something my head goes empty and I can’t seem to put together a single sentence. So instead of writing I just sit there staring at the empty screen until I feel like pulling my hair. After a while I close the computer thinking that maybe I just need to do something else and then later on my inspiration will be back. But instead of ten coming back to my computer I do my very best to avoid it as much as I possibly can. So the screen stays empty and the blog stays quiet. As the days pass by I start feeling bad about avoiding the blog so I once again sit down and try to come up with something to write and once again the whole thing ends with me pulling my hair. It’s a bad circle and today I decided to stop it and just write what ever comes up in my head and this was the result.
I do hope that you won’t give up on me, I do have a lot to tell you and I’m trying my best to find a way to write it all down. So stay tuned and hopefully soon you will get to hear all about my latest adventures such as my first trip to a glacier and what it’s like to loose a tire on your way up a glacier 😉
Yesterday was a very special day; it was the 6 month anniversary of my move to Iceland. It’s hard to believe that’s it all ready been 6 whole months since I stepped off the air plane with all my bags and a million butterflies in my stomach. Even if this wasn’t my first time in Iceland it felt so completely different from my previous visits, and not only because I was alone and didn’t have Doddi by my side, but also because I knew that this wasn’t just a visit. I wouldn’t be going home again in a couple of weeks or so, in fact I was home. This was my new home now and it felt so unreal somehow. I had been looking forward to this for so long, but then the plane finally landed and I felt a bit scared along with all the excitement. Even if this wasn’t the first time I moved away from my home or moved to a new country, it still felt completely different. For the first time I had no plan, no job or school waiting for me. But I did have a really amazing guy waiting for me and that was all that mattered to me! Doddi and I had been away from each other for so long at that point that all I could think about was that soon I would get to see his smiling face again and feel his arms close around me, and I could hardly wait.
Three years ago today I gave my heart to the most amazing guy I’ve ever met. He’s the one I would follow to the end of the world! Nothing about our life together has been easy, but nothing that can be thrown at us could ever break the bound that has kept us tied together for so many years now. Ever since that day three years ago I’ve known that we’re meant for each other and with him by my side there is nothing I can’t do! He’s the reason I’m in the biggest adventure of my life and just knowing he’s there by my side through the journey makes it so much easier to enjoy it and not worry where it will all lead me in the end! Every day with him is like an adventure, an adventure I hope never ends!
Ég elska þig af öllu mínu hjarta, nú og að eilífu♥
To follow up on my previous post, here’s a video from New Years Eve. Video is taken somewhere in the Reykjavík area, if I understand it right 😉 Think it gives you a pretty good idea what it’s like here when the clock strikes midnight. It’s absolutely amazing!!! 🙂 And of course it’s a lot better in real life 😉
Christmas is over and life is back to normal. After spending a week in Sweden celebrating a great Christmas with my family, we came back to Iceland a few days before New Year’s Eve so that we could celebrate the New Year with Doddis family in Akureyri. This was the first time we would be in Iceland during New Year’s and I was really looking forward to it after hearing lots of stories about how Icelanders go crazy with fireworks. But after going with Doddi to buy some fireworks I got a huge chock, it would cost a small fortune to buy the same amount of fireworks as I’m used to from back home. Fireworks are so expensive here so the thought of people buying a lot of them didn’t really add up to me. So of course I got a little bit suspicious and thinking that maybe the stories weren’t true, maybe they had all exaggerated a bit. Oh how wrong I was… There had been no exaggeration what so ever, they really did go all in! The weird part about it was that there was so many of them that started before dark and all through the evening you could hear them all over town. When we got close to midnight the fireworks started for real and it was so amazing that I don’t even have words to describe it! I was standing out on the street and all around me they were shooting up and exploding in all the colors of the rainbow, and all I could think was; it doesn’t get much better than this! Iceland is the place to be on New Year’s Eve!!!
