A short hiatus

Every summer, my husband and I take a trip somewhere special to celebrate our wedding anniversary. And every summer we lament the fact that we could have saved a lot of money by going during the school year.

This year, we decided to go to Iceland. I know what you’re thinking. Iceland? But it’s not a freezing cold wasteland of ice. In fact, the winters in New York City are harsher than the winters in Reykjavik, which is to say–not bad at all.¬†And by this time of year, we’ll have about 16 hours of daylight there so we can really pack it in. Iceland is a spectacularly beautiful country with all of our favorite things to explore: waterfalls, mountains, glaciers, volcanoes, and (best of all) natural hot springs and geysers. We found an excellent package deal for May, and since its a short trip, we decided to go for it!

The video above does a really nice job explaining all the reasons why we’re so excited about Iceland, minus the corny music. Watch the first 30 seconds even on mute and you’ll get the idea.

I’m not scheduling out any posts or social media stuff while I’m away. I don’t want to have to worry about moderating comments or promoting content. I just want to take in the beauty of Iceland and leave everything internet-related behind for a few days.

Pictures to come when we return.
