I had no travel plans for my long Easter vacation (I had a lot of leftover vacation time from last year so was going to be off work for several weeks actually) and intended to do home projects and take walks in the forest and so on... but at the very last minute I got a phone call two nights ago, late at night, with the proposal, "I had a crazy idea. Why don't you come to Iceland tomorrow?"
I had been longing to go to Iceland, plagued by an intermittent and sometimes very strong homesickness and a constant longing for/missing of my closest friends, but had no concrete plans in sight to go. Then suddenly an almost weeklong-trip fell into my lap, full of endless temptations never to leave again. Sigh.
Here I am. Happy as can be.
