It’s one of these posts I am struggling to write, I’ve been postponing it for a few weeks now.
Some of you know this, but I went to Iceland last year, it was an opportunity I had and I just said yes.
Saying yes to adventures is something I did quite a lot last year. I used to say no for different kind of reasons, reasons I now despise and regret.
You can not be your own obstacle in life, people already do that for you; you have to sometimes go against the flow and say yes. Be bold. Be adventurous. You will definitely be grateful later on. I know I was!
Iceland was the best trip I took last year, the shortest, however definitely the best one. It might be because I realized something important there, something I needed to know about myself and life. Or just because Iceland is one hell of a magical place.
I won’t go into details about my trip, the main reason being I’m having a hard time talking about it to people, except some; and also because it feels like it’s too personal. Hence I can’t talk about it to everyone. Just go there with an open mind and be prepared to have your heart blown-away! I couldn’t stop being in awe of the magical atmosphere there’s there.
Just know this : I was deeply moved and inspired there. Iceland is magical, beautiful, mystic and unique. I actually plan to go back there for a longer period of time, and I could totally see myself working there. Out in the wild. I am lucky to live in a beautiful city, to feel comfortable in it. I have my bookshops, my cafés, my routine, my parks and spots all across town to feel resourced and happy. What I miss the most is silence. Stillness and serenity. I did not understood I missed that until I arrived in Iceland.
It’s a cliché, but it changed and moved me deeper that I could ever imagine; it made me even more grateful to be alive, to be able to travel and see breath-taking landscapes, to be able to be amazed and in awe of Nature.
