Oh my god we’re back again

132 words on

Four weeks of holidays are over. We had a great trip and saw countless sights, occasionally in questionable weather. The number of countries I’ve been to has increased by two and the number of U.S. states I’ve been to rose by 10-12, depending on whether just driving through counts. People were nice and pretty much all our plans worked out. Amazing.

The executive summary would be as follows:

Iceland Canada U.S.A.
Flag Flag of Iceland Flag of Canada Flag of the U.S.A.
Currency 157 ISK = 1 € 1,38 CAD = 1 € 1,36 USD = 1 €
Toilet sign Snyrtingar Washroom Restroom
Water smell sulphur chlorine chlorine

I started to develop a faible for brutalist architecture and now I’m tempted to retro-blog the experience, if only to make sure I remember it better.

My iPod’s photo app claims we were here:

Well, since you teased us with your holiday before you left… then didn’t blog a single word while you were away… I think you owe it to us to retro-blog your trip! :-) Happy you had a nice vacation.

Yeah, I considered blogging as we went along but there was just so much to see and do that I would have considered that stressful.
