Busy times have passed and now I am ready with "What to Bring with Me List" to be used in the last day while packing my luggage. The though part of moving is that there are lots of things to be considered while moving out even for a stay with 6 months of duration. The reason for this stay is to have a short-term project to be carried out in collaboration with a professor in the "University of Ontario Institute of Technology" at Oshawa, Toronto. Actually I have some stress due to uncertainty of the unknown regarding to a new place to live, while having happiness of the opportunity to find out new culture, country, places to be photographed and of course leaving Denmark for a long time duration since I couldn't have had close friends in two years time here in Denmark despite my friendly personality.
Here is the route, planned to be followed with the mood I have for each:
Tomorrow the destination is going to be Reykjavik, Iceland. I, all the time, like to use the opportunity of the flight transits by staying at the transit city for some nights, which enables enjoying the city (in this case 3 nights) while decreasing the effects of Jet Lag. One stone two birds
. Iceland seems to be a perfect place to visit for us, the photographers due to its having variety of natural phenomena occurring there (Northern Lights, Geysers, Waterfalls, Blue Lagoon, etc.). Hope I can have nice shots, while enjoying the relaxing geothermal spa, the Blue Lagoon, which I need a lot indeed.
Then, I will arrive to my final destination, Toronto, Canada and then bus trip to Oshawa in which I am going to have my stay for six months. Luckily I found my accommodation in a dormitory located in the university which makes me relaxed since I need to work hard for the first three months in order to have some free time later to enjoy Canada. I heart that Canadian people are friendly, which exactly what I need after COLD Denmark. However I have the mood of "being in case" with the afraid of encountering the same of what I have had in Denmark as bad attitudes towards me, discrimination, being afraid of, etc. I don't think I will be exposed such things there in Canada but still the experiences gained in Denmark keeps me having the idea "No Expectation".
After six months I am going to return back to Denmark to finalize my PhD study. Busy times then to write the thesis and to get prepared to defense the thesis to thesis committee consist of experts, professors etc. which they will change my life like hell for a couple hours. Hope not
Cross your fingers for me for the new and hopefully an enjoyable life, and safe trip
