A First Impression of Iceland
There is a feeling of anticipation, excitement and the realisation of a dream as you fly over the Atlantic Ocean towards Iceland. There is an inner awakening that this has been a lifelong love affair you have desired to discover but never knew why. Iceland it seems was always in your heart that unknown urge like a long lost love calling you home.
Half way across the Atlantic you peer at the steely blue ocean and notice a change in the purity of light. You are crossing through the thin blue veil that guards Iceland’s secrets. You feel restless and with a longing you have not felt for such a long time. Yes soon you will see her and all her beauty.
Touchdown is gentle and as if you have just been cradled into the arms of Iceland’s nature. As you step out into the freshness you feel alive and invigorated and as if you are finally home. There is a sense of déjà vu as you begin your journey of discovery. There is a familiarity in the landscape, yet you have never been here before except in the journey of your dreams.
There is gentleness around you and a feeling of love. You do not feel out of place and the welcome is beyond what you imagined. This could be home and where the heart is content. Beyond the horizon is a country waiting to be discovered. Now you are here let the love affair begin.
