I am writing this waaaaay before you’re seeing it (ah, the beauty of scheduled posts!) but this morning I started reading a friend’s book that is based in Iceland. There’s nothing pretty about it because it’s boring and financial based, but Iceland itself.. Another one of my long-loved places on Earth. But, from very lazy Googling and poking around, it seems pretty expensive, so it’s going to have to be one of those adult trips (adult as in old, not dirty!) that I save up for. Darn.

I found this blog a while back and while I’m not sure if it’s still running/posting, I think it’s a super cute blog – about Iceland obviously. Well… actually, it’s set up from Iceland’s point of view. “Hello I am Iceland” is apparently how you instantly suck me into following.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

Now, this one I can blame completely on Dean. And I do with no shame. I remember a time when he would just continually send me links to these beautiful images of the French Alps – probably some other Alps too, but I can’t remember exactly. Anyway, he showed me and ever since then when I come across a photo of them I get all “ahhhh” and breathy and dream about exploring, or at least driving, through this awesome place. This photo is one that makes me particularly keen to become a mountain hiker. I think it’s all the green.

Imagine if it was possible to roll down one of these and not gain crazy speeds and end up dead? That’d be so nice.

Okay, so I’ve been meaning to write the first post for this blog for about a month and a half now, and I’ve been putting it off and off and off, mainly because our plans kept changing and evolving. But now it’s mostly set in place, so I can finally blog about it!

First off, I need to tell you all what’s happening. My mother decided a few months ago that since I was finishing high school and she really really wanted a reason to go back to Las Vegas and knew we wouldn’t let her escape without us, that we should go travelling. It began as plans to go to Las Vegas and have her and my stepdad spend two weeks there, and then my brother and sister and I would fly over for the last week.
And then, my mother decided that it would be a better idea if we went travelling to more of America. For a longer period of time, like say, an entire year. And so the plans began.

It was a year around America, no plans. And then a year around America, in an RV and hotels. We wanted to be in Las Vegas for the World Poker Tour, but couldn’t figure out how that would work, because we wanted to be in New York for Christmas, and in Pennsylvania in February for Punxsutawney Phil – so plans weren’t really working out!

And then one day my mother told me plans had changed again, and due to issues with Visas taking too long and costing a lot of money (!) we couldn’t spend the whole year in the US.
So now plans are Asia for three months, USA for three months, Europe for three months, and then the US for three months again before we came home.
Still a year abroad, but in lots more places with lots more to experience.

My mother has christened the trip our “Life Changing Year” and blogs about it on her site Life Changing Year and uses her Twitter to update about it as well.

I’ll be using this blog before we go and of course while we’re away to share all the interesting news and adventures, and I’ll also be vlogging about it on my YouTube channel and tweeting about it here. I’m addicted to social media!
