We are back in Reykjavik after a wonderfully relaxed and snowy trip up north. Bjarni used to spend most summers as a child in Sauðárkrókur with his grand parents, and it has become my favorite destination in Iceland with stunning nature, lots of horses and the always loving grand parents Alda & Egill.
We made it to Reykjavik two days ago, where it smells refreshingly of ocean. Ahh, I like it! It's cold; the sun rises around 11.30 and sets at 15.30. So far we have been eating Icelandic hotdogs, which I have been craving for in quite a while, buying the last christmas presents and napping. Today we are heading up north to Saudakrokur to spend Christmas with the grand parents. We will be offline until returning to Reykjavik, so this is the time to wish you all a very merry Christmas!
I'm not really the most frequent blogger at the moment, which I appologize. School has been a little crazy lately, but yesterday I finished the last lecture before Christmas (the professor brought snacks, soft drinks and a bottle of VODKA to celebrate! Haven't experienced that before.. ) So now I have slowed down a bit (there are still a couple of papers I should work on), and I enjoooy having a little more time to do christmas related activities: Today I'm baking and I finished a sewing project with a couple of christmas girls I started earlier in the month. Temperatures has dropped to below zero and turned puddles into ice. It snowed over the weekend. It's perfect for the season and the Christmas mood around here. We are heading off to Iceland on Monday, and are very excited to spent two relaxed weeks in good company up north.
