The island Viðey is the largest one of the Kollafjördur Bay, near Reykjavik. So far, this island is still my favorite spot. Not just in Reykjavik but in Iceland in general. I went to the island on my first day, being kind of depressed in the morning after arriving in Iceland. This island lightened up my mood a lot. It is close to my accommodation and I took the bike to the ferry. I spent my whole day there, wandering around. Once I left the area of the peace tower and the Viðey house, nobody was there expect me. Partly I sat there for over an hour just drawing and watching the nature.
Only about 9 weeks left for my semester abroad in Iceland and I am already back in Germany. I really enjoy my time here, but on the other hand I look forward to be back again. I noticed that I simply do not like the idea of staying somewhere just for a short time. Often I have the thought “Not worth it. You are only here for a few weeks still.”. Living just temporary somewhere, kind of like living from your suitcase, apparently does not suit me. I like having my own home base, all my stuff. Additionally, I really miss living on my own. Do not get me wrong, it is not like it do not like it here. I enjoy my time a lot, draw a lot, and get to see all kind of beautiful and interesting things. I actually plan already on coming back with my mother and my sister.
