Icelandic Magic

For someone who spent most of her life in land-scarce, urban Singapore, a place like Iceland feels almost unreal. To be able to lay eyes on mountains as breathtaking as the ones we casually drove by on our road trip, and witness the efforts of thousands of years of unrelenting water activity take shape in the form of awe-inspiring fjords and waterfalls was an immense privilege that I was thankful to have. No photo or video can do justice to the true magic of the moments you spend on glaciers, hills or craters, taking in the vastness of the Icelandic terrain.

It was then that I learnt to silence the hundred and one thoughts that I usually have swirling around in my head, and focus my attention on the multitude of sensations and emotions that surfaced in the moment. Those feelings of wonder, gratitude and exhilaration are permanently etched in the deepest corners of my mind, serving as reminders that we are but specks in the greater scheme of things, and that the world is so much bigger than we know.
