About time maybe. I haven't totally forgotten about the blog. It's been a busy year.

I moved to a new house. Compared to the old 46 sq m loft it's huge. We use the largest room as storage for now but the apartment is still enormous. I'm thinking about moving the blog too because I absolutely hate this new blogger interface. I thought in the beginning it just needed fixing. Does anyone know a good blog interface where it's easy to post pictures and adjust where they end up?

I know you probably all have cherry blossoms by now. I also know I don't have much time to spend here these days. I might find out on Monday I have to move out in 7 days so it doesn't look like it will get better anytime soon. But that will be for a good reason. I'll be back though. Looking forward to the summer.

The kids threw themselves into this natural hot footbath when we went for a walk. We didn't have towels or anything.

We had one afternoon of spring last week in Iceland. Well spent at the playground, walking around the city center ending with a huge smarties biscuit.

I think I forgot to post a before and after of our former "panic room". Now it's a "I wish I was a 4 year old" room. And I also wish we could bring it when we move.

There are a few catches and things that could still go wrong but if things work out we've sold our apartment and might move out already next month. This is going to be 2 slow weeks before we know for sure.

This is the way to a hot spring. Point of no return. In the summer it's crowded with tourists. When it's almost -20° you have to be brave to run down that pathway, take all your clothes off in the open air "changing room" and jump in. The water is lovely 37-40°C. You wear a bathing suit and a warm hat. The steam freezes in your hair and it almost makes it hard to blink because your eyelids start to stick together.
Did you forget to put your clothes and your towel in a plastic bag when you stood there half naked before jumping in? Then you now have icicle clothing and have to run all the way back to the cabin in your swimsuit (not recommended). Getting out of the water is hell and if you take too long and try to dry yourself you will end up with a body armor of ice. Best thing is to have a Helly-Hansen suit ready so you can be dressed in 5 seconds. Lying in the hot spring in the night watching the Northern lights and the stars is quiet amazing.
It's also popular to rent a cabin in Iceland and they usually all come with a hot tub on the veranda with a northern light view.
