October 31st, 2010.
We left London on October 30th too late to be able to reach Iceland that same day, as the flight would take 8 hours including a refueling stop. So, we stopped overnight in the Northernmost tip of Scotland, in the remote town of Wick, population 8,000.
There we had a small celebration for Keith’s birthday, where he received his cute present.
October 31st was Halloween, and the date we wee initially supposed to return to New York. I am not a big Halloween fan, but somehow, having spent the past two months in the small plane and slept in over 50 hotel rooms made me miss Halloween, mostly because I was thinking how my friends in New York are getting costumed and ready for the big Halloween parties. So, all I could do is unleash my creativity and decorate the plane!
And that’s how we embarked on our “scary” flight to Iceland.
