... sort of.
To celebrate handing in my dissertation, Laura and I will be flying to Iceland on the 30th of September. We land in Reykjavik, from where we plan to drive / bus around Iceland. Iceland's roads close for the winter, but the main ring road should remain open. Our itinerary is flexible, but hopefully will include: icebergs / glaciers, volcanoes, Dimmuborgir, black-sand deserts, waterfalls, hot springs and Aurora Borealis.
To prepare, I have bought Icelandic music, Beowulf and Grendal - a film shot in Iceland - and put an Ebay bid on a copy of the Icelandic Sagas. I will also preocure warm clothes. Now, I shall work, or I will have no reason to celebrate.
