The Way We Were Wednesday : The First Visit
Not exactly ancient history, but back in 2015 we visited Iceland for the first time. 2015 was a complicated year. It started out with me working for a week in Hawaii in early February, then having my spine repaired in May, Going to Chicago for a conference in early August, and then going to Germany later in August, with the stop over in Iceland on the way back. Jay had a conference at Oxford, so he flew out and spoke at the conference. Then I flew to Frankfurt Germany, spent the night, then took the train to Stuttgart. He flew to Stuttgart and we met up there. We spent a couple of nights in Stuttgart, then picked up a car at the Mercedes factory, drove it in Germany, and Austria (and France for two minutes, I missed a turn) dropped it off in Munich and flew home on IcelandAir with a 26-hour stopover in Iceland. We rented a car, stayed in a nice suburban hotel near Reykjavik, did a little driving around, and flew home, thinking that was amazing we need to go back and spend more time. And we did. And we still need to go back and spend more time.
