I can hardly stand the wait - going to the land of midnight sun. Going to experience daylight when it is night... going to a different reality for a little while :-)

Going to stand up on the Artic Circle at the top of the world (Grimsey Island). Grímsey is a small island 40 km north of Iceland, situated directly on the arctic circle, at 66°33'N, 018°01'W, with a highest elevation of 105 meters. We plan to get there by plane.








I don't suppose this would qualify for the Mile High Club, would it?

I suppose all you can do is try!

Don't you become a Blue Nose, or something like that, when you reach the Artic Circle? Your trip sounds like it will be a lot of fun. I will be there for a week and I will mostly have coffee and cakes and talk, talk, talk into the wee hours.

Tai - we'll try :-D (huge grin)

Mo'a - Blue nose? Well, it sounds logical - ha ha ha. Hope it isn't really that cold - but I'll take the title :-) I know we shall have tons of coffee and cakes as well, because as you must know, relatives and having "coffee" involves so much more than just coffee! I'll be doing good to just listen though... as my Icelandic is extremely limited. Elskamin is top on my list of spoken words to my Sweetie :-)

Oh, and Mo'a - THEY CAME, THEY CAME!! My new friends arrived and were escorted to the door by a postal employee to be signed for... and they are SPECTACULAR! You are so awesome - they are flawless. Love them - my Bjarni was so pleased :-) Thank you so much!

I LOVE the first picture. All of them really, but the first one was just other wordly.

I think you should just start your own little "club". ;)

Crazy Me said...

I agree with Outdoorsy. You should totally start your own club!!

I am in AWE.
Pardon me. I must attempt to pull my chin from the floor.
