We leave for Iceland on Friday morning.  It seems like a long time ago when the idea of travelling came up.  Now, there are suitcases, packs, and camping gear strewn around the apartment.  Hostels have been booked, tickets purchased, and plans have been slightly dusted in volcanic ash.

It’s a strange trip to pack for as we are camping and hiking around the island, as well as spending time in Reykjavik.  It seems difficult to pack light as there’s so much to bring.  My fear is in the forgotten, that item I’ll be able to picture so well, left back home on the dining room table.  A camera perhaps?  Or, maybe a sleeping bag?

Tonight though, we’ll lay it all out, consult our Google doc of stuff to bring, and hope there are no more trips to REI.

My mantra on the last day before a trip is: I can buy it there. Otherwise that anxiety of the forgotten thing takes over my brain, making it more likely that I will forget!

Have a wonderful time! It sounds like a fantastic trip.
