It was 2°C with scattered clouds. The wind was light.

For years, I’ve wanted to relax in the Blue Lagoon in Iceland, drop my body into the warm, blue, mineral-rich waters and gaze into the mist coming off the warm water into the cold air. I imagined that I’d feel the difference between water and sky by bobbing my head between the two, crossing the unseen horizon languidly throughout the day.

A castle in the sky, surely. But it’s something I’ve always wanted to do. A life well lived is about exploring those castles in the sky, no matter what happens.

Saturday I was able to explore the lagoon for myself. Tourist trap, perhaps, but vision, confirmed.

Sanna, Craig, Amal, Cassie and 24 others said thanks.
