During a few years I was obsessed with Iceland and Björk. Then I started obsessing about something else – University, those confusing years…- and forgot about it. But now that we are going to have a direct flight Bremen – Reykjavik, the obsession is back.
We love long Summer days. The air smells better, that mix of barbacue and fresh grass, people are happier, they look prettier and a simple cold drink in a terrace can make you feel alive and exultant. While the most traditional Summer destinations are placed in the warmest climates, we have been thinking about spending a few days in a milder latitude. What about a different Summer in Norway? Maybe in 2016… The Lofoten islands have been on our bucket lists for a while, but visiting the Stave churches or exploring the Fjords sound just as appealing. Oslo is one of the European capitals that we still have to discover. With a few beaches and islands near enough to arrange some pretty interesting day trips, it looks like Oslo has it all. However, Finnmark, home of the Sami, could be quite an exotic destination. Have you ever visited Norway? Would you recommend it for a different Summer?
We have to confess that Morocco was not very high on our bucket list. P. visited Casablanca a few years ago and came back with mixed feelings. I’ve never been to Morocco and never gave it a thought, to be honest. But recently, we’ve started reading about new hotel openings, camps in the dessert, crowded markets and lonely walks in the Atlas Mountains… and now we have the urge to visit and get to know Morocco. What about you? Is Morocco on your bucket list? If so, stay tuned for Thursday because we will share with you something that might interest you ;)
We’ve never been to New York. There, we’ve said it. Everytime we plan to go there… well, something happens and we change our plans. But we can’t stop thinking about this city. We think about how romantic it would be in Autumn, how charming spending Christmas there might be, how intriguing a Summer in the empty city could feel.. and we’d love to get to know New York in Spring. Someday…
So Valentine’s, huh? We sure love chocolates, flowers and lovely jewellery but if we have to choose a present we choose travelling. A short getaway, a long weekend… that is always our favourite surprise. We have prepared three Wanderlust posts to give you some ideas for next Valentine’s. Avoid pink, little hearts and sticky candy. Pack your bags and go! First destination: Porto.
