We will always remember the feeling that flushed over us when the sound of this song hit our ears for the first time. It was like we were flying. It's pretty amazing when a song hit you so hard that everything else around you disappears.
And then you listen to it again, again and again. And every time you turn that song on, it doesn't matter where you, what you are doing, or what time it is, because it takes you someplace else.
It was a few years ago that we first discovered Sigur Ros. That band really opened our eyes for Iceland (you have to look at the music videos, they are pure magic). So one recent afternoon we decided to book a flight to the volcanic island in the far north of the atlantic ocean.
We now long to once again get lost with a car and have nothing except the wilderness, our camera and ourselves. We've been longing for adventures for quite some time now (haha that is almost everything we write about here, so it's about time that we actually go on some) Adventures that includes just the wilderness and the freedom that comes with it when you have nothing except yourself and the nature. To listen to the sound of silence and let mother nature itself blow you away time after another. Mmmm, can't wait to show you Iceland from our perspective, shooted through our lens within a few weeks.
PS. We heard that they recorded parts of GOT there, so if any of you could tell us where John Snow is hiding that would be great...)
We snapped these pictures above in Sydney in late May when the autumn sun still warmed our cheeks. It was just a few days before we flew back right into the blooming spring in Sweden.
We took our first steps in Australia in early January when the icy winter surrounded Stockholm. To escape the cold like that and jump into the summer was the best thing we have done.. we love that way of living. We belong to those who wish that the whole year only consisted spring and summer rather then the darkness and cold. We can't help ourselves wishing that the summer was eternal now when the cold air is sweeping over Stockholm again.
◈ Dress - Spell & the Gypsy Collective / Hat - Lack of Color◈ After Gotland, we spent no more then one and a half day in Stockholm before we took the train to the country side once again. Now we're in the forest at our mum's house in the old school in the middle of nowhere. Our own craw castle (do you want to see more pictures of how it looks like?), spending the days catching up with job, eating raw food (yep, our mum made us do it), playing games, drinking heaps of tea and crossing our fingers that the summer will stay just a bit longer.
Life is always more lucid when we’re moving. And for those of us with restless hearts you find yourself happier and more free if you keep yourself moving. We haven’t been at "home" for almost eight months now and we can’t help ourselves planning on more adventures, festivals and roadtrips. It to much to see all over the world.
First out is Iceland within a few weeks. Can't wait to set out on a two-weeks adventure of hiking, discover and to see the world and it's beauty with wide eyes.. After that maybe Norway, Denmark or even Sweden. It's so easy to forget the beauty in your own country.
