No epic adventure, more of a "if we don't escape our lives, we may lose our minds" kinda thing. I have been working extra shifts and Pete got a second job to pay off our debts, to pay for our encroaching  trip to Iceland.  The long work days, never seeing one another or our two pups was wearing on us. We wanted to wake without an alarm, be covered in sand, gorge ourselves on fresh seafood and fail at surfing. There were more cloudy days than sunny, but we didn't mind. It gave us an opportunity to do what we never get to do anymore, nothing.
