Fuck Christmas, I got the Blues

This year I'm spending Christmas away from everyone I love.

Of course this is not the highest point of my life, but to be fair... I am going to be in Iceland seeing waterfalls, volcanoes, glaciers, whales, fjords, geysers and IF I'm lucky enough I might even catch a aurora borealis in a polaroid for posterity. All this while listening to a lot of Bjork and Sigur Ros.

Also, I will be riding a snow mobile, learning about the ancient myths of one of my favorite civilizations (wait.. vikings where a civilization, right?) drinking cheap vodka in expensive places and finally relaxing in either the sauna or the jacuzzi or even in front of a king size plasma TV in one of the most beautiful hotels I've ever seen.

I will do all these things with a cute geeky girl that has more piercings and tattoos than me (and it's getting increasingly difficult to find one... eh..).

But you know it and I know it... she's not you. Is dat een leuke ding?

Estou a pensar em ir à Islandia também, se puderes dar uma luzes de como estão as coisas a nivel de passagens, estadias, etc agradecia :)

A viagem ficou-me por 400 euros aproximadamente (partida de amsterdam) e a estadia fica por cerca de 500 (Apartment K por 5 noites)

Aconselho-te a veres precos e disponibilidades em e

O ISK esta ao preco da chuva (1 Iceland krona = 0.00405936335 Euros)

Inveja. A Islândia é sem dúvida um dos sítios onde quero ir um dia e acho que nem me importava de viver/trabalhar por lá uns tempos (se bem que da forma que a economia anda agora isso seria difícil).

A inveja e uma coisa muito feia pa! :-P

De qualquer das maneiras eu tiro fotos e depois logo escrevo um relato do que se faz por la.
