sammblake I recently got interviewed and a question was what was my seven year plan. I realise I don't have a seven year plan let alone a year plan anymore. I had a mild freak out. New York was my plan for so long, it feels like I forgot to make new ones once NY became my reality. Then I realised my main goal should be working towards a great life / work balance, something I've struggled with for many years (all work, barely any play), and I feel like i am finally getting a healthy balance. So here's to a lot more play time, not feeling guilty about it and dreaming about new places to go explore. 4h

sammblake This trip to Iceland we drove completely around the island, weaving up and down the fjords and mountains. Never felt so aware of the earth, how it was made and all the magic in it. In just a 40 hour period alone, we bathed in geothermal pools, we crossed many mountains and on one, the intense wind almost threw us off a cliff, causing our campervan to turn on it's side and somehow we survived and got off the mountain with no injuries. We passed a hundred waterfalls, lava fields, windy plains of black sand, glaciers, saw the volcano erupting on the very distant horizon and seeing a spectacular display of the northern lights. 2d

sammblake The mountain range that slapped us around and made us realise Iceland is a wild beast not to be tamed crossing this mountain range was the scariest experience of my life! 2d

sammblake I'd be very happy living in a camper van with him roaming Iceland for a good long while. 5d
  •   lissykate I really hope you have made an Iceland playlist to accompany the stunning fire/ice landscape along the way (Of Monsters and Men, sigur Ros, Emiliana Torrini, Olof arnalds). It's seriously amazing. Ps if you feel like a bit if luxury a lot of boutique hotels let you park the camper, use their hot tubs/showers/kitchionnette 5d
  •   lissykate Oops... Kitchenette/wifi, for about $20/night. That was our best find along the way around the ring road. And stopping at all the swimming pools too! Seriously amazing. Take me back! 5d
  •   danapugh Our kids keep asking us to go back. 5d
