One of the craziest destination is #Iceland . Kenapa? Karena meskipun masyarakatnya baik, makanan (mahal) enak, kota nyaman sembada, bahkan udara yang sangat bersih dan sejuk, namun saat kita membuka map kita baru sadar...... kita di antah berantah utara sana. Hanya demi mengejar Aurora Borealis. Anyway, ready for the New Blog Post: Iceland 🇮🇸?
The historical seat of Icelandic power and parliament, Þingvellir, is a stone's throw from this pool. As chieftains spoke words of consequence and authority, deciding the fate of a great people and land, it lay nearby. Imagine their words, weighed down with heavy significance, sinking to it's bottom. Every decision that shaped a young nation sharing a cold home with mud and stone, in the depths of a tranquil pond.
1 Samuel 17:34-37 (ESV)
“But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep sheep for his father. And when there came a lion, or a bear, and took a lamb from the flock, I went after him and struck him and delivered it out of his mouth. And if he arose against me, I caught him by his beard and struck him and killed him. Your servant has struck down both lions and bears, and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be like one of them, for he has defied the armies of the living God.” And David said, “The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” And Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you!”
My favorite part about Iceland was definitely the scenery but, not gonna lie, the ice cream was a close second. Icelandic people take their ice cream seriously (like, there’s even an icon for it on the road signs) and I’m allll about that kinda life. 🍦🙌🏼
I almost wasted this Monday... but then I saw an amazing quote, and decided to get up and slay Monday.
"She was focused on personal growth, business growth, & booty growth." 🍑
Basically words to live by.
are roads travelled upon,
or are they journeyed?
do they merely serve as connections between places you were and the places you're seeking?
do stripes painted over pavement move like arrows, pointing toward the next destination?
or does tarmac striking through landscape serve as a destination, too?
