This beautiful country... I swear. It feels like I've waited an eternity to get here.
Traveling to Iceland has been a dream. Since childhood, before ever leaving the US, it was my top destination. Perhaps that's why there was never a feeling of urgency. I knew I would find myself on this island one day. And now, I'm going to walk across her, sleep on her rugged surface, drink from her fresh water, get slapped in the face by her unforgiving weather! Alone. With a smile. This brings me peace.
I'm bracing myself for a struggle. I'm preparing for the worst. Yet somehow I'm still completely certain that this is exactly where I'm supposed to be.
