I was excited about the trip but I did not yet know why. After all, I hadn’t done any research. I didn’t search for “things to do in Iceland” on Google. Besides, if Game of Thrones was shot there, how bad could it be? We were also on auto-pilot because our trip had activities built in for us. Finally, November came and this trip turned out to be quite the learning experience.
My five-day trip to Iceland was as random as the day my sister from-another-mother, Ameerah, and I planned it. Four months earlier during one of our weekly meet-ups, she and I just blurted “Iceland” over cups of tea. Ameerah, who was on her way home from work when we met up, had her Macbook at the time and opened it up. Using Groupon, we found a flight and hotel package for a November travel. With the price being $599, we went for it. It was a complete case of randomness as we Leos are prone to.
