In four days time I will be on a plane winging my way to Europe. Sure there will be 36 hours and 40 minutes spent in an airplane seat trying to sleep and sitting around in airports to get there but that’s all part of the adventure.
It feels like this holiday is getting very real all of a sudden. When I booked it back in September (who does that??) it was more of a concept rather than a reality. Now that’s changed. The friend that I’m going to be with in Iceland flew out of Australia yesterday and will arrive in Iceland after a few days seeing friends elsewhere in the world. On the weekend I bought some long johns to wear under jeans to keep warm. I’ve washed all my clothes and this week will be spent wearing all old underwear and clothing I don’t want to take. I’m feeling very glamorous as a result.
Now the nerves are setting in. There are the nerves that come with travelling to the other side of the world and not being sure of what to expect. Thankfully most of the time I’m quite a chilled out traveller. I go with the flow fairly easily and don’t actually make too many set-in-stone plans other than accommodation and flights.
Part of me is wishing I had a drone to get some aerial footage on this trip. Sadly I don’t. There will be much footage taken regardless and it will be glorious. That’s the plan anyway!
Life is an adventure after all. Go and enjoy it!
