Reykjavik is on my bucket list. I have never had so much fun and enjoyment as I did today. Playing in the snow with child-like enthusiasm was without a double the highlight of my trip. After all,how often does one let go of all concerns, and be in the throws of genuine happiness and peace??
Icelandic people live here because they love the land and the lifestyle. Iceland in my opinion is one of the most beautiful places on earth. I feel as if I have left the world as I know it and have entered an entirely different space A world of peace, happiness and contentment unlike any I have ever experienced in my lifetime.
As I wander up Laugavegur I am transported to a time when Vikings ruled this land and I am just a visitor to a settlement from long ago. I visit the settlement museum and see first hand the discovery of a land of opportunity, and self-sufficiency.
I stop to eat at the fish market and savor the Icelandic fresh fish, and savor every bite. I am enamoured by the flavors of the land and the warmth of the people who welcome me. I can only hope I am as good a visitor as they are a host.
I am immersed in their love of land and hospitality. I will never forget the beauty, and serenity.
safe journey, Debbie
