Fueled by coffee
Wow. It has been extra crazy the past few weeks of work and that was me walking through O’Hare the day after Easter headed to my flight to Fort Myers, Florida for work. In less than two weeks, I’m headed to Las Vegas for barely 48 hours and then on Memorial Day, I’m off to Copenhagen and the Faroe Islands. I feel like if I can just hold it together mentally and financially, I’ll make it to Monday, May 29 and being happily packing my carry-on suitcase and my one personal item and leaving on IcelandAir in the evening. SIGH. I can do it.
I am starting to put together an eat/drink/see itinerary for Copenhagen. The city has an amazing dining scene and I am excited to try as much as I can. I also plan to visit Mikkeller Bar in Copenhagen (bringing my Mikkeller bar visits to three: Reykjavik, SF, Copenhagen). I will definitely be sufficiently carb-loaded for the Torshavn half-marathon by the time it rolls around on the first weekend of my trip.
In Torshavn, I have a celebration dinner reservation booked and I have not planned much after that as far as eating. I’ve booked some tours, I’m working on booking some other sightseeing or trying to decide if I want to do a half-day ocean fishing trip (do I?). I’m also still wavering between renting a car or not. It is booked, but so is my taxi RT from the airport. So, the details will happen little by little. I am also taking notes for a friend (who I know from silks and will be in our group act in June!) because she and her sister are going to Reykjavik and Copenhagen, and maybe Stockholm. Just as I am thinking of popping over to Malmo one of my days in Copenhagen.
I guess I am writing this rambling post to assure myself and anyone who feels lost when they’re travel planning, that even those of us who thrive on travel planning have slow moments or trips that seem disorganized a month prior to departure. I am beyond excited about this trip, no doubt. However, life has gotten in the way and I know it will come together
