My happy place are my shoes. Right now it is this pair of sneakers which are my choice companions for most of my walks. I love to walk, and it doesn‘t matter if it is a city I explore on vacation, or if I go on my daily walks at home. There is always so much to explore and discover and see. Walking connects me with the world around me and brings everything into perspective. Usually I come home bright eyed, happy and full of energy and ideas. Even on the days I started out with aches or a bad mood. After the walk everything is better. This prompt was a great reminder to finally pay hommage to my shoes and give them a little backdrop of the things we explored together.

Beautiful Island... Good times never if end if they are remembered. Beach rules, wake up smiling, flips flops are the mandatory, feel the breeze, take long walks, soak up the sun, make a splash, hang up to towel, leave the sand at the beach, relax and unwind, watch of sunrise, ride the waves, kick back, build sandcastle, cold beer with good company, laughs, fall in love, enjoy each moment, look at the stars, be grateful, the life is two days.
I have only visited Iceland once back in 2019 and honestly it was enough to know how much I would love this country. We visited Reykjavík and saw all the sights from the Hallgrimskirkja Church to the Blue Lagoon. I would definitely love to go back one day and explore the whole island. So this map represents how much beauty this country holds and the places I would love to visit one day.
Our lockdown restrictions prohibit us from walking much further than 1km from our homes but luckily within 1km of our home is a village square with a 9th century Byzantine Church so we walk there. I added some Greek place names to give a vague sense of the location and how it feels to walk through the winding streets and tumbled up houses of Geroskipou.
