20 Days and Counting

3 Mar

Three weeks from now, I will be in the Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Natura snoring blissfully, weary from overnight travel and the time zone change.

In the past few months, I’ve been preparing for what I’ve been calling my “adventure of a lifetime,” and this is what I think I have achieved:

  • No to Glacier-Splatting: Physical fitness increased for the hike.
  • Yes to Electricity: Converters purchased for the electrical essentials.
  • Maybe to “I’ve been lost here before”: Icelandic pronunciation has improved, and asking for directions might actually include the name of a road instead of fish bait.

Now come the lists:

  • What do I need?  What do I want?  What can I live without?
  • What do I see?  Where do I go?  What do I do?
  • Did I cancel mail delivery?  Did I give the fish their week-long food tablet?  Did I turn down the heat?

I’m open to suggestions!

    Well… you forgot to pack me. *grin*

    What you really really need to bring is your sense of adventure and a decision to have a fabulous time. 🙂 Which is exactly what I expect you to have. 🙂 I am very very excited for you. 🙂
