Remember when you were a kid, and your birthday party/Christmas/Disney vacation would never, ever, ever come? The thing you anticipated and wanted so badly – but always seemed out of reach?
That is how this trip has felt like to me. There has been so much to do in preparation, and I felt like it would never ever really happen.
So, today, as I write this from our apartment in Reykjavik, Iceland – I am struck with the fact that – not only has that much anticipated event started, but I am living it right now!
We arrived in Iceland at 6:45 AM local time (11:45 PDT), and with little to no sleep – we laid really low. We did walk to a market and got a few groceries, but otherwise, we’ve been pretty sacked out. Tomorrow, the exploration really begins!
