Aside from the actual joy of going on a trip, I always revel in the planning aspect, such as determining what to visit and collecting useful garments. I always visualize a mood, and in this case it revolved around my romantic idea of a boating adventure. Donald and I have never been on a cruise before, in fact we are perhaps the anti-cruise type, mostly preferring to do everything by foot or on our own. However, it has always been my dream to sail within many Fjords and to reach Iceland by crossing the Norwegian sea. This map shows where we'll be.
I mentioned my successul vintage shopping trip in the previous post, where I found everything I had hoped for. I had been searching for a special hat to compliment a few daytime outfits, and found the perfect one that fits so comfortably. Additionally, I wanted a very detailed evening dress for special occasions, the kind that makes you look like a sparkling gem. The dress is heavy, but feels so luxurious!
Of course Erlend wanted to be included in the photographs. She decided to plop down on my swimsuit and then proceeded to play with my sunglasses. I will miss her immensely, but luckily still have a week left to enjoy her antics!
