We have a sort of crazy situation before we actually get to Iceland since we booked via frequent flyer miles – but we’re on our way.
We’re currently at the tail end of a 22 hour layover in Detroit. We arrived at 2pm yesterday, so we rented a car and drove to Ann Arbor for the night. I haven’t been back since I graduated, so it was nice to reminisce. We drove past our apartment and walked around campus and walked around downtown, etc.
The weather was fantastic, so we had a great dinner outside.
Jon was in the mood to drink, so we made it to a couple of different places to accomplish that …
We woke up this morning and stopped for breakfast on the way to the airport. We’re now sitting and waiting to fly to LaGuardia.
We’ll have about 8 hours before we fly out of JFK to Iceland, so I suppose we’ll find something to do in NYC for a few hours since we have to leave one airport for another, anyway.
I am super excited about Iceland, of course, but have had a fantastic time in MI. I’m glad things worked out this way.
We’ve rented a car and will be driving around the Ring Road that travels around the island, but that’s our only plan for Iceland at this point.
A friend (who has been there) suggested that we bring some food, just in case – so I packed a small bag. I’m not sure what to expect food-wise, but there’s some idea that I might not be super thrilled with my choices since I don’t like lamb or some seafood (i.e., I don’t like lobster). Either way, I’m excited to see what we find and hope I don’t have to rely on (boring) granola bars and almond butter.
I didn’t pack any running clothes, but I did pack my Garmin in case I decide to walk for miles on end, I guess. I haven’t been running much lately, anyway, and don’t see myself pushing it.
In other news … life has pretty much been the same. I’ve been doing the strength training thing a couple of times a week. Been skipping runs for reasons mostly unknown to me, but somewhat due to a perceived lack of time and shift in priority. I co-hosted an engagement party at my house on Sunday and had 55+ people show. It was awesome. I chopped off several inches of my hair.
Still not totally sure how I feel about it since some of the layers are pretty aggressively short.
Time to go!
