Just two pictures of Harpa in Reykjavik that I didn’t want to publish before having them framed and exhibited.
If you go back a few months on my blog, you’ll see that I went to Iceland in July. I have published a few pictures, but not my favorite ones. I knew already that I was going to have them exhibited and didn’t want to spoil the surprise (for those who would be able to see it).
The exhibition (which I called Ég tala ekki íslensku*) has started this morning in my favorite café in Boulogne-sur-Mer (North of France), the Kawa Coffee House. I am really happy that it is taking place there, as I consider that place as my second home.
The photographs can be seen until the end of January. There might be another exhibition somewhere else but I still need confirmation, so hurry up if you’d like to discover a part of my work.
*I don’t speak Icelandic
I recently published pictures of Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik and I thought tonight was a good time for some landscape pictures.
This is the site where Geysir is and from the top of the mount at the back of the first picture, we had an amazing view on a valley with streams and colourful grounds.
I wish the sky had been blue for better pictures. I’m really not good with grey skies.
I love architecture and I love photography. I recently went to Iceland and discovered Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik, such a nice place to visit.
It is amazing how the windows resemble a beehive. Some of them are tainted, and it brings great lights and colours inside the building.
I remember one year ago approximately, I wrote an article about me going to Dublin as an Erasmus student. Well, here I am, 12 months later, on the edge of leaving Dublin. I wish I could find the words to describe my experience here, but I am afraid I couldn’t write an article good enough to gather the memories of the past few months. Of course, I can say it was amazing. I could also tell you that I have met wonderful people, seen nice places and most of all, drank a lot of beer and wine. But unfortunately, it would not express the many different feelings overwhelming me. So Dublin, here’s a goodbye. I will be back (if flights are still cheap).
Of course, when a chapter ends, a new one starts. I have recently received a reply concerning my application as a French Language Assistant in England for next year, and it was positive. Few days later, I found out that I would probably be in the north of England, in one of these regions (until I am contacted by the school, I cannot be precise) : Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Rutland, Nottinghamshire. I am of course excited about spending a whole new year in England, meeting new people, seeing new places and finally learning about teaching English pupils.
See you soon!
Soon is maybe not the right word. I wanted to talk about a new project I have, and I know that when I talk about my projects on the Internet, I always try to give the best of myself to realize them. Among a few trips on the continent next year (England, Ireland again, Spain, Italy and Germany; let’s hope I will respect my promises), I am planning a one-month trip to Iceland for the summer (of 2015). Checking the prices of the flights, I could easily go for 300-400€ (for a return) during summer. My plan there would be to work in a farm (via the woofing organisation) and try to visit the Icelandic lands as much as I can in a month.
I tell myself that I have a whole year before it will happen but I get really excited just by thinking of it.
If I manage to travel as much as I have said in the article, I promise you nice pictures and some poetry.
Thanks to all of you who followed my adventures in Dublin, I promise you more! (Paris in a few days)
