D-day is coming …

The pressure is unbearable — not really actually :) –. Photographic equipment has been checked, baggages are almost ready, (crappy) food has been bought in large quantities. A short night of sleep and we should be on the road tomorrow morning for 2000 kilometers during three and a half days, driving through France, Germany and Denmark. The final point will be Hirtshals, from which we sail to Iceland after a quick stop in Tórshavn, Faroe islands. Which makes a grand total one week of travel until we reach the land of the Sagas : the almighty Iceland!

I have never seen and prepared so much stuff and I have no idea how we will manage to put it all of it into Kioki — our car has a name, and it’s a she! :) — … we might eventually be squeezed like sardines in a can, but we will do it. Definitely!

Ha ha ha! … I can already hear some of you laughing at us, but hey! This might be a 3 months trip. We actually have taken the minimum to live and sleep in the wilderness in an unstable-weathered country, relax a bit on our camp chairs with a cigar and an icelandic beer, and a whole lot of food to avoid spending too much money in these expensive countries. And yes … maybe a whole lot of photographic equipment … but I absolutely NEED it!

Anyway, I have still a couple of things to prepare so I will have to leave you now. See you soon my friends!
