a chance of thunderstorms



Well, I'm back from my trip. It was more than I could ever have imagined. But until I put some photos up (my film is being processed as we speak/as I type), I'll give you a quick version of the highlight reel.

Iceland: Laying in a hot river atop the mountains, eating far too many pylsurs (an Icelandic loaded hotdog), eating far too many skyr desserts (another Icelandic specialty - okay, so we indulged), collecting a film canister of ash from the spewing volcano that no one can pronounce, the Blue Lagoon (enough said), waterfalls and close to 21 hours of daylight.

Berlin: Eating a 'Berliner' sausage and drinking a mojito at a street festival, brushing up on some very interesting history, renting bikes that would both have flat tires by the end of the day, sitting at the edge of the water in Tiergarten, schnitzel and analyzing the German language (perhaps I did learn something at university?). I definitely got that warm and fuzzy "I could live here" feeling in Berlin.
London: A picnic in Hyde Park and Topshop. It's all we had time for! Four great purchases, which I liked even more when I got home (isn't that best?). Got pair of bloomer-ish shorts in the exact print that Lara is wearing in the 3rd picture. Inspired to try wearing them like her.

The last photo is another from the shoot I did with Meg. Just fits right in with all the other models, doesn't she? Pictures soon!
