I am scribbling furiously away on my manuscript about my travels in Greenland, Iceland, and the Faroe Islands. Okay, maybe “scribbling” is old-school, circa junior high when I still wrote my short stories and never-finished novels in spiral notebooks.
I am typing furiously away….
In all this feverish writing, as the landscapes and people, tastes and smells, sensations and feelings rush back into my cozy home office, I am inspired to tackle a side project. Namely, adding one of my favorite corners of the world to my country guides. In the coming months, I plan to add my own travel guides to all the places I traversed, including some tips for others like me living and traveling with fibromyalgia or another chronic medical condition.
To kick off this mad writing rush, I present my Country Guide to Iceland. City and region guides for Iceland will be added little by little as I write them.
On a side note, today I walked to and from my doctor appointment, a total round trip of 2 hours through melting snow and ice. I am determined to continue walking – the single most important therapy for my fibromyalgia – throughout the winter months.
We’re having a bizarre winter. Mild until this month, my birthday arrived with instant winter and sub-zero temperatures. Until yesterday, when my walk to work presented a crazy mix of 4 seasons in the space of 45 minutes – rain, sleet, hail, and snow. Today, as if I wasn’t dizzy enough, the weather wizard tossed out a pleasant March day of dirty melting snow and warm sunshine.
What will tomorrow’s walk bring? In Wisconsin, you just never know.
