Location:- Evening Cruising down Eyjafjordur, Iceland

(As we are currently “enjoying” an icy blast direct from Iceland , I thought this location appropriate)

Moody Monday….. Somewhere in Iceland

Somewhere-in-Iceland

A moody morning somewhere in Eyjafjordur, Iceland.  An un-promising start but in fact the mood lifted producing a wonderful Icelandic day.  That’s the weather for you…. full of surprises.

Whatever your mood this Monday….

Just Thinking…….

Hello Reykjavik

Just thinking…..  it was early morning, the sun just rising, the air so crisp and fresh, the sea calm, as we arrived in Reykjavik for an Icelandic Adventure.  It was exciting.

Even if one does try to be positive, I am not sure that Travelling will ever be quite the same for many years to come.

But at least that memory, along with many others, still seem as fresh and as stimulating as the days on which they were created….. and for all those memories and adventures, I am very grateful

Please Remember ….

Wordless Wednesday…….. Another Favourite Place

Godafoss, Iceland

Location:-    Godafoss Falls, Iceland. 

When chasing memories, one place keeps surfacing to the very top of my list of all my favourite places……

The Godafoss Falls.  The Waterfall of the Gods, so named since 1000ad when a Nordic Chief threw an icon of a Nordic Pagan God into the waters of the falls…. well that is one of the legends, sounds OK to me, and as I wasn’t around at the time, I will believe it 🙂

Whatever you believe…….

Once upon a Time we made Plans…….

ICE-1_00956_00028-(3)

Evening as we left Isafjordur in Iceland.  It had been another grand day of discovery for us on our first tour of Iceland.   Like many folk used to travelling, we have over the past few months been wondering if we ever will get to go wandering again.   Despite the best efforts of our favourite cruise line, who assure us that there will be more happy days to come, tales of new ships, changed itineraries ready to drop into place….’sometime’ …. it all seems a little like fantasy to dream.

Hard to be positive, but without that ability to travel, near or far, without meeting new people, new cultures, new adventures, we will miss those opportunities to learn, to be stimulated.  Who knows what and when things will get back to some kind of normal, let alone days like the ‘Old Days’ 

Only glad we were able to make so many memories…

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
