Skip was reading the travel section of the paper a couple of weeks ago and saw an airfare/cruise/land tour of Iceland that looked interesting. It was also a very good deal. It took us about 3 seconds to decide it was something we'd like to do and contacted the travel agency to book it. We've been waiting a week to hear if we're confirmed as Iceland celebrated two national holidays this past weekend.
Yesterday we finally heard that we are confirmed! Yay! I do have an ulterior motive. Skip and I will tour together, then next time an Icelandic knitting tour comes up, I'll feel less guilty going with a girlfriend rather than Skip.
I continue to work on The Pastoral.
