Q is for quiet

Q is for quiet
In Iceland, there was an incredible amount of it. QUIET. The photo was taken in the West Fjords. There it is breathtakingly beautiful and stunningly quiet. You drive by rental car along a fjord, after that comes a fjord, followed by a fjord and then ... a fjord. Only sometimes you pass a lonely house or another car. When I look at the picture I would like to jump in and feel the peace there again. Far away from stress.

Wow....I can hear the silence. Reverent and peaceful, beautiful and breathtaking. How awesome that you could visit this place, Chrissy, such great memories you have to look back upon. This is a very fine Q, my talented Pod Sister! :)

Wonderful picture, Chrissy. I know exactly what you mean about quiet. A few years ago I took a trip to New Zealand and visited Doubtful Sound on South Island, no human settlement there as it's not accessible to the general public. We took a boat into the fjord network, at one point the captain turned off the engines and asked everyone to stand still on deck. I've never experienced such peace and tranquility in the presence of other people. Unforgettable. I live in Tokyo, which must be one of the noisiest places on earth, a lot of the noise is unneccessary and intrusive. Iceland is on my list of places to visit.

Then you should go out of season. I was there in April and that was fine. In June or July there are more tourists :-). I would love to visit New Zealand one day. It must be similar to Iceland.

A superb image that takes me back to distant places. And yes, there is nothing more impressive than to hear total silence - something all too rare in our busy world.
