So woke up in NY, fell asleep in London, played in Iceland all day.
We woke up yesterday, got ready, then went into the city to walk around Central Park and The Met. Twas lovely, we found the Alice in Wonderland statue, which is a movie I'm really excited about, by the way. :)
Then we went to SEA in Williamsburg Brooklyn, the birthplace of the hipster (hold up) and where the opening scene in Garden State was filmed. It was awesome, met up with Brittany and had a lovely time with Philip, James' friend, as well.
After taking a rushed taxi to the airport we got to our flight in time. Took the redeye to Iceland, where I woke up to our plane flying into the sunrise over Iceland. James and I listened to Sigur Ros on the way down, and I'm not scared to admit that I did get a little teary eyed at the sheer majesty of the moment.
Then we went into Reykjavik (Cooper it is pronounced "Wreck-havoc" lol) and took another bus to our horse riding stable where we took a two hour horseride through the lava fields.
HOW IS THIS MY LIFE?
Then we got on a plane to London, and after a frustrating at first but lovely later Underground experience, we found ourself at the Grange Strathmore Hotel in Central London, which yes, was booked last minute, and yes was more than we can afford and yes, was the biggest blessing ever. Random circumstance and my smile ended us getting upgraded for free to a sweet three bed suite overlooking the English street. Pictures to come of this. It was luxurious and insane.
I woke up and had the sweetest quiet time wiht Jesus overlooking the street through our open window. Life is so beautiful.
Then we went down to free continental breakfast at the hotel, which WAS INCREDIBLE. All my etiquette skills were puplled out because the breakfast was legit with lovely croissants, fruit, meats, cheese, muesli and cereals, orange juice, toast, jam, and of course the most loveliest cup of English tea (of which I had three cups and now feel a bit sick and jittery). There's a hostel down the street that we will probably move to today. We're sitting in the lobby after just checking out and using some free wifi to plan our day.
I'm thinking read some Austen in Hyde Park. Mmm yes.
Love you friends, miss you dearly. I'll update more later!
