weekly wanderlust: scandinavia

It's been a while, my friends. I've caught the "instagramming is so much easier than blogging" bug and it doesn't seem possible to come back from. But I'll try. I don't want to force anything that's not meant to be though.

I've been feeling the itch to travel lately. I even planned a mini trip to Seattle this week to quench it a little, but it's always going to be there (apart from the week after an exhausting trip when all I want to do is sit in a Netflix trance weighted down by blankets with just enough arm movement to craft lazily).

The destinations on my mind lately have been of the Scandinavian variety. Ever since I saw a few bloggers this past year visit Iceland, I haven't been able to shake the feeling of I MUST GO. Not just Iceland though--the whole enchalada, people. Ted and I went to Amsterdam for a few days, but that's as far as we got. The whole snowing-in-Portland-for-a-hot-sec also got me hankering for snowier climates. It's just something so foreign to me as an Arizonian! Waking up to snow falling literally turned me into a joyful toddler jumping up and down on the bed. Can you blame me? Snow is magical and exotic to desert folk.

One day I will make a Scandinavian backpacking trip happen. But for now, I will drool over pictures online and plan my wardrobe contents around how cool I want to look in Scandinavia when I visit someday. That's what normal people do, right?

But, come on. Just look at this. And these are just the tip of the iceberg.

(Did that get a pity laugh at least?)
Sweden (I blogged about the Ice Hotel years ago, y'all. I wanna go realll bad.)

Welcome back to this blogging thing! I'm hopefully not trying to force anything that's not to be while I'm on here. Instagram is by far my biggest addiction so it might be all together a bad thing if I cut back on that too.

I LOVED your pun, haha :)

If you don't want to go all the way to Scandanavia, you can also visit Minnesota and get a fair bit of the wintery feel.
