A week in Iceland – Day 3

Have you ever walked behind a waterfall? The first stop of our third day in Iceland brought us to Seljalandsfoss. It drops from 60 meters of height and it is not difficult to find, in fact you can see if from the ring road.

The beginning

The beginning

“What are you going to do after that?” I heard this question several times. While I was finishing school, my undergraduate and master degree, then my internship in Ireland and a 4-year PhD in England. I didn’t even know what I was doing in that moment and I was pretty tired of thinking about the day after tomorrow, when the important thing was to just focus on today. I was chased by the typical Italian mentality according to which you…
