Less Than Two Weeks Until Iceland!

May 5, 2013

This is a very late week­ly post, but bet­ter late than nev­er! I count Mon­day as first day of the week so, in the­o­ry, I didn’t miss a post. At least that’s what I like to believe.

Our trip to Ice­land is now only less than two weeks away! Of course I had to come down with indi­ges­tion which has been going on for a week now. Bum­mer! That com­bined with PMS/perimenopause makes for a very unhap­py Fir­da. But that hasn’t stopped me from going on our dai­ly walk to pre­pare our­selves for the hikes we’re plan­ning to take in Ice­land. If any­thing, the walks keep my spir­it up and keep me excit­ed about the trip. 

I real­ly hope that I’ll get over this soon because I would hate to still be suf­fer­ing from this crap dur­ing our trip, espe­cial­ly since I would like to be able to enjoy Ice­landic cuisine thor­ough­ly. Right now, I’m prac­ti­cal­ly doing a gluten- and dairy-free diet to keep my stom­ach hap­py, which isn’t fun at all if you know how much I love cakes, cook­ies, and ice cream. On the plus side, it is a sure-fire way to shed some pounds. Every thing has a sil­ver lin­ing and all that.

I real­ly should decide on which cam­eras to bring soon. I’ve got my cam­era back­pack cleared and ready for load­ing for a while now but so far it’s still pret­ty much emp­ty. Though pro­cras­ti­na­tion is a major con­trib­u­tor to this. What can I say. Pro­cras­ti­nat­ing is what I do best.

Any­way, about the pho­tos on top of this post, I took them on the World Pin­hole Pho­tog­ra­phy Day this past Sun­day with my trusty Pana­son­ic Lumix GF1 and a Pin­wide pin­hole while tak­ing a long walk around Port Dover, Ontar­io. It was a love­ly, over­cast day. We took a walk on the beach and around the town before hav­ing a per­ch din­ner at one of the local restau­rants. Luck­i­ly, the rain didn’t start falling until we decid­ed to leave. You can find the larg­er ver­sion of the pho­tos I took that day in this Flickr pho­to­set.

Well, it’s past bed­time for me. Until next post, hope­ful­ly in less than a week from now!
