Meet My Daughter & Son-in-law in Iceland

By
Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

July was a crazy month for me. I knew my daughter and her husband Marco were going off the grid to Hornstrandir, Iceland for the month of July. They planned this trip carefully and couldn't wait to embark on their month long journey. As mom, how could I not wonder how their trip was going? It is now August 8th and she made a YouTube video today which she gave me permission to post on ActiveRain.

Hiking in Hornstrandir Iceland July 2022

I think it is more like an educational documentary with lots of artic fox and wildlife. We have been talking regularly since they got back home to Switzerland and everyday, I learn something new. My daughter Carrie Ann and her husband are living life to the fullest! From the time she was born I believed, as she believes, every person on earth should get out and explore the wilderness because it is a ground breaking experience. I laugh now as I recall taking her and her brother to Frankenstein Cliffs in Bartlette, New Hampshire to hike when they were very young. They both thought I was killing them and that I wasn't an ordinary mother. I told them I was making them stronger.

I hope you enjoy her YouTube video as much as I did as it allows you to use your creative mind and spirit to be refreshed in the warmth of your own home offices. As you settle down to unwind let me know if you enjoyed vicariously hiking through Hornstrandir, Iceland without carrying the big backpack and hiking the rugged trails or walking through the very cold Arctic Ocean, Rivers, Streams, and hard mountain climbs. Don't forget, on hikes like this, there are no stores or restaurants. The lighthouse was their refuge. I thought the people and their singing was great and I hope you do too! 

P.S. I hope Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573 and Sharon Tara gets to see this video because Maine & New Hampshire is where my kids and I did most of our hiking and mountain climbing. They were both JMGs, and ventured out on many trips as Trip Leaders. It is where the three of us fell in love with the New England landscapes and became stronger because of our many life challenges. Now, they are showing me how much further anyone can go when they love nature and adventures. All it takes is perseverance, strength, determination, and a belief in yourself including never giving up on your dreams---Patricia Feager

Good morning Patricia,

What a wonderful post and so exciting to see the adventure your daughter and son-law took in Iceland. She did an amazing job on the video! They learned (from mom): All it takes is perseverance, strength, determination, and a belief in yourself including never giving up on your dreams.

Wayne Martin - Thank you for the lovely comment. I'm glad to know you enjoyed the video and her adventure. She is forever young because of fresh enthusiasm and eagerness to try new things. Her soul is buried in beautiful life adventures and she continues to broaden her mind. 

Brian England - I am so glad you watched the video. Perhaps, you'll share it with your parents too? I thought she created and narrated it with perfection and gave us a great overview of what Iceland is like. She continues to invoke awestruck moments with humor, enthusiasm, and weaves in education too. 

Dorie Dillard Austin TX - I loved and appreciated your comments! Family is my everything! She does not disappoint. Thank you for the wonderful comment and watching her video creation. I was really impressed because she shared some still photos with me and we talked endless hours about all the things they did but to see her put together this video, well, it's a production filled with everything, excellent photography, narrative, scenery, wildlife, danger, excitement, singing in a different language, a culture I never saw before, and so much more, like her hand stands and push ups too. She has endless energy. I greatly appreciate what you had to say. Thank you.

Good morning, Patricia... I'm like Endre Barath, Jr. in that I've been in Reykjavik more times than I can count and have never left the airport. The closest I've gotten to Iceland except for my transfers through its airport is my Icelandic boyfriend in high school. One of my German cousins has done ice climbing there many times. I don't get the fascination. Loved the video even though you wouldn't ever catch me hiking like that!

I watched the entire thing - and while I do love hiking, that would not have been my cup of tea - they are braver and stronger than I am! Some of those hillsides were crazy! And your daughter must have arms of steel to be doing push ups with all that gear on her back! Thank you for sharing!! They obviously had an amazing time and I am happy for them.

Nina Hollander, Broker - thanks for letting me know you loved the video. Everyone should follow their own heart and passions too.

Kat Palmiotti - They did have an amazing time. Thanks for watching the video. She made additional videos for me to see and in some of them she was doing one handed push-ups for long periods of time. She is a strong woman.

Thank you very much, Patricia, for sharing this video.

We have visited Iceland one time, years ago, and would love to return.

Roy Kelley - I would love to read a post from you about your trip to Iceland years ago because you were inspired by my daughter's video to share your memories. I think Dolores would appreciate reading your account of what that trip meant to both of you too.

Endre Barath, Jr. - She can be very entertaining. But as an educator she is very smart and serious. Crossing the river in fast motion was funny. Her dance moves are fun to watch too. It's easy to have a good time around her because she is so good natured and always learning something new. But what makes a difference is she retains everything she learns. She loves to teach and she makes learning fun.

George Souto - I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the video and recognized my daughter and son-in-law's "adventurous spirit." The two of them are forever learning and discovering life in the most interesting ways by doing. My daughter does a lot of volunteer work too and is an excellent (and very serious) teacher, especially when it comes to safety.  She believes in doing things right, right the first time and never giving up.

Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400 - I am glad we had that time together by phone to talk about my daughter & son-in-law's trip to Iceland. Coincidentally, before you called I was watching another video of Iceland and reliving her adventure all over again. Your timing was perfect! It was like receiving a double scoop of ice cream. I got to watch another video alone; then talk about it with you. Always remember the sunshine dance and be happy!
