10 months already! I can’t believe I am closing in on my one year expatversary. This has been a rollercoaster year so far and who knows what these next two months have in store for me!
Backing up to this past month it was a busy one over here for me. An amazing vacation in Croatia, beautiful hikes in Iceland, back to work after summer holiday and enjoying the sunshine that has finally made an appearance in Iceland! Here are my favorite memories from my 10th month abroad.
10 days spent enjoying the beautiful Croatia
Our Croatia trip was amazing, this country is beyond beautiful! A recap of our trip is coming soon!
Dozens of tiny alleyways in Croatia wandered through
I think half of my pictures are of little streets in Croatia. I find them so charming and just love spending a lazy afternoon exploring them.
Four books read over my summer holiday
Many of those books where read with a view like this, perfect way to spend the day! If you are looking for some end of summer reading I highly recommend checking out Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn for a more suspenseful book, and The Vacationers by Emma Straub for the perfect beach read.
Too many delicious cocktails to count enjoyed in Croatia
That is what your suppose to do on vacation though right?!
First Reykjavik Gay Pride Parade
I have heard so much about this parade and was so happy to finally get to see it for myself. The atmosphere is just amazing and this float by Páll Óskar was by far my favorite.
One day full of amazing Icelandic landscapes
Gjáin and Landmannalaugar are two of the most beautiful places I have seen in Iceland. If you ever are in Iceland I highly recommend adding these two places to your to do list!
Multiple trips to the swimming pools
When the sun shines in Iceland you don’t spend anytime inside! My favorite way to spend a sunny day is at one of the local pools. In my opinion the best pool to spend a sunny day is Vesturbæjarlaug, luck me that this pool is also two blocks from my house.
Second soccer (or football) game gone to in Iceland
I am not the biggest soccer fan but it was a beautiful summer night, the sky was amazing!
117 days until I leave to visit home!
H and I bought our tickets to fly back to Oregon for Christmas this past week and I am beyond excited! It will be over a year since I have been home and I can’t wait to see my family and Azora!
An awesome month yet again, and after a rough few weeks adjusting back to work life has settled back into routine and time is just flying by. This weekend H and I are running in a half marathon together, it is culture day in Reykjavik with free concerts and activities all day and to end the weekend we are going to Justin Timberlake’s concert Sunday night. A fun weekend indeed! Have a great weekend everyone!
