Halló from Iceland! ⠀⠀
This small Nordic island has been one of the top tourist destinations for the past several years and its easy to see why! No matter whether you are an adventurer looking to explore the dramatic landscapes full of volcanoes, geysers and waterfalls; a party animal looking to enjoy a cocktail under the midnight sun in Reykjavik; or you're simply looking to spend some me time in a beautiful place, Iceland has something for everyone. ⠀⠀
Follow along with us this week as we explore these things and more.
Fan of Harry Potter? Then you should be a fan of Livraria Lello. JK Rowing used to frequent this beautiful bookshop (often cited as one of the most beautiful bookshops in the world) when she taught English in Porto.
From this shop she drew inspiration for parts of Hogwarts and if you look at the lamps on the second level, possibly even the symbol of the Deathly Hollows (not confirmed just my suspicion).

We made it safe & sound back to PA from FL right at midnight this morning, which is excellent timing considering we had 3 toddlers and 2 dogs along.
Like I said yesterday, our weekend plans didn't go as planned, but we did get to pop through town (Hawthorne) on the way to the winery (Gainesville).
Every time I visit my parents, I have to stop and take a photo here ☝ in downtown Hawthorne bc come on, isn't this mural so neat?
If you're looking for a cool photo-op in town, this mural is located on what is now Hawthorne's City Hall. 😉
I couldn't imagine that I will feel pure joy and excitement of discovery again. I thought I am too old, saw too much, experienced too many different things.
Last two weeks were magical. I had so many different 'first times', went to places I was dreaming to visit for years, tasted things I don't even know how to name it... And slab city... culmination of the trip and tears of happiness to feel that energy around and next to me.
Life is so beautiful. You can see how happy I am! I remembered again how good is to leave comfort zone and follow some rabbits to wonderland (or Armenians to California).
Being basic AF on a moody morning at this Norwegian classic 💁🏼♀️🇳🇴
Which shot do you like better? The classic view of this fishing village or the second shot of the boat cruising through the fjord?
