In a twist of fate, instead of going to see WWMJDINPAMPLONA, I am suddenly booked to go to iceland.

How did this happen?

I was planning a trip to Paris with my friend EJ forever. we kept going back and forth about it. finally he called me from London one morning and said, "If we don't do this, we will regret it for the rest of our lives."

and the fire under my ass was lit.

In my search for cheap flights, I came across iceland air, which logically routes all it's flights through iceland. I don't know, they must have some subliminal advertising in their interactive fight booking site, cuz suddenly I found myself turning my stop over into a 2 day icelandic experiment! I knew I had done the right thing when discussing Rekjavik with Carlos.

"Ah - this is a very peculiar place - very....Scandinavian!"

My sister said she heard a story once about some people who may have been icelandic but she wasn't sure. Anyway, she thought they were from around that part of the world. So these people, they weren't very good at communicating with each other, they were very quiet and withdrawn. So every month they had a monthly get together where they would use dance as a means of communication.

Suddenly bells started going off...Norweigan folk dancing? Anyone?
