From Iceland to the O Town

This small girl is now back to a bustling capital. In which she found it so strange after spending almost two weeks in Iceland and all she had seen was nature.


I wrote that caption on my Instagram photo last night. Yes, yesterday finally

I left Iceland. I was quite sad. Honestly speaking, I felt very very sad.

My very first world problem after I stayed for a long time in a country and stayed with someone is…when it is time to say goodbye. That feeling when I get used to the country, the foods, the language I heard everyday, the locals, & their lifestyle.
And of course, my friend and her family. It is harder because I don’t know when will I meet them again.
Ok, i am getting a bit melancholy. It is the 2nd country after Turkey that I feel so sad of leaving. Icelanders are…awesome!

When I first stepped on my feet at Oslo Central Station yesterday, I was like…OMG! So many people!

I have been living my life in a (small) city whose population is higher than the whole Iceland population. I already known that I cannot live in the Indonesian capital. In short, I am a spoiled city girl.

…and then I still felt strange to be back in a bustling city.

As you might know, the population in Iceland is less than 400.000 people. More than a half live in Reykjavik and I still find that Reykjavik is the calmest capital I have ever been to. I found it calm (quite empty in some parts), and not so many ppl (except in the downtown, which mostly were tourists.) and I did enjoy it. I could walk around without worrying that someone might bump into me while walking. Or cars horning at me.
And fresh air! Ooohhh you will love breathing in Iceland.

So, that’s all I wanna say. I think I might consider looking for a job in a rural area, maybe?
