The Most Amazing Reunion in Reykjavik, Iceland

10 09 2016

During my trip to Reykjavik, Iceland, I was posting photos on facebook and updating my status when I noticed that one of my facebook friends seemed to be visiting the city at the same time and she wasn’t just any facebook friends but a close friend from elementary school in Boston.  The school was actually in Chestnut Hill, which is both Brookline and Newton, outside of Boston, and we were two new girls in a class of ten girls in the sixth grade when we met.  Now, what is the likelihood that we would both be spending time in Reykjavik in the same week on vacation?! I mean I travel a lot and my friend, Lida, who’s been in the travel industry likes to travel but we’re not talking about New York or Paris.  We were in Reykjavik!

We managed to hook up.  Thank you, facebook.

We were to meet here but Lida had gone to another branch of the same coffee shop!! But we met up at the end.

We were to meet here, the Starbucks of Iceland, but Lida had gone to another branch of the same coffee shop!! But we met up at the end.

Yay!! Saw each other for the first time in about 40 years. How about that.
