Pabbi & his Mia • This pair are just adorable. Nothing turns a big hairy Viking into a pile of mush like this little girl. 💕🙌🏼⠀ •⠀ She slept over at her aunties last night and we missed her. We got home at midnight and Ingimar said “I miss her, should we just go pick her up”?! ⠀ •⠀ She had him round her little finger since the moment she entered this world. I dread to think of the spoiling which will come!! 👶🏻💕🧔🏼 #LayoutlinesIceland

The ‘ok’ Glacier 🌋 ⠀ •⠀ There is a glacier here in Iceland called Okjökull and it recently became the worlds first glacier to loose its official ‘glacier’ status due to global warming, how sad is that?! 🌍 ⠀ •⠀ Watch the movie ‘Not OK’ for the full story > out August 17th 🎥⠀ •⠀ Now do you believe in global warming? 💬 #LayoutlinesIceland

After my ‘all clear’...I had a little incident yesterday. I’ll update more shortly • for now, take me back to road trips and the freedom of wanderlust. 🇮🇸 #LayoutlinesIceland

@icelandfamilylife

🤰🏻🙌🏼👶🏻 Recovery • 13 months, lucky 13. It’s been 13 months since Mia’s birth and, after a long journey, today I got the ALL CLEAR from my consultant. 🎉⠀ •⠀ That sounds crazy, and it was. I NEVER thought for a second that I’d have such a long recovery, especially after a good and natural birth. It never crossed my mind. 🤷🏻‍♀️⠀ •⠀ I had a great pregnancy, went full-term and had a good birth. Unfortunately I had an episiotomy which came with complications meaning I never healed it from it. ✂️ ⠀ •⠀ 4 months ago, Mia was 9 months old, I had an operation to ‘re-do’ it and I am sooooo glad I got the chance to heal fully. 🙌🏼⠀ •⠀ Getting the operation wasn’t easy. It took a lot of persuading doctors and dealing with hospital policies, but it was finally done and I’ve not looked back. 💬🏨🧔🏼🤦🏻‍♀️⠀ •⠀ Though this is in fact a minor issue medically, it meant months and months of discomfort and pain for me. I fought through discomfort to breastfeed Mia, I sat uncomfortably on hard floors at playgrounds and went about our weekly routine with pain but love and pride. 👶🏻👩🏻⠀ •⠀ So if you (or someone you know) has gone through this, please get the help and medical care you need. It’s often an easy fix but it makes all the difference, I promise. 💫🙌🏼💕⠀ •⠀ I am ME again!! I am pain free and feel amazing. I had a fabulous consultant and great support from my family. I couldn’t have done it without the Vikings help and that of my amazing friends who came to visit and helped with Mia whilst I recovered. Thank you 💕 #MiaNicolson

💬 Do you agree? “If we were meant to stay in one place, we’d have roots instead of feet” 🌿 I love travel. I love living abroad but I also love my home comforts. 🏠💕⠀ •⠀ Life as an ‘expat’ comes with its highs and lows. Yes, missing a good cuppa tea is one thing but that’s kind ‘first world problems’. Language barriers, beliefs and general lifestyle differences can make you feel a long way from home. 🤷🏻‍♀️💫⠀ •⠀ Do you live abroad, what are your highs and lows? #LayoutlinesIceland

Mini me • this little girl has had a hard week, and so in turn have we. It’s so difficult when your baby is sick and you can’t do much to help them. 🤷🏻‍♀️💕⠀ •⠀ Cuddle simply are the best medicine and I don’t mind one bit. We’ve been co-sleeping (which I avoided like mad for the first year of her life) but it’s soo comforting for her and honestly, anything that helps her, helps us. 💫🧔🏼👩🏻👶🏻💜⠀ •⠀ Teething is progressing and the more teeth, the more she doesn’t look like our little baby anymore. She’s slowing growing and becoming our little girl. It’s so cool (insert a way better word) to see her develop before our very eyes. 🙌🏼💕💕💕⠀ •⠀ This little girl is full of life, giggle and being playful and fun. I can’t wait to get out and about with her again soon. 👶🏻💕 #MiaNicolson

Icelandic Summer • it’s a heatwave across Europe again (haha, yes here too, my car says it’s 25’c right now) so I’m heading to the beach to enjoy the hot tub. Bliss⠀ •⠀ What are your weekend plans? #LayoutlinesIceland ☀️🇮🇸🤞🏼

Teething with a T • we were meant to be heading route one and having a proper Icelandic adventure this week but sadly Mia is teething big time so we decided last minute to postpone, and I’m soo glad we did. ☀️⠀ •⠀ It’s not all bad though, the sun is out in the city and we’ve been enjoying some big loooong walks (armed with drugs and frozen snacks). Why do we need teeth anyways?! 🤦🏻‍♀️⠀ •⠀ Road trip coming soon, I hope 🤞🏼 #LayoutlinesIceland 🇮🇸

ROADTRIP • what says ‘Iceland road trip’ more than standing in the middle of the road, wearing a bright yellow jacket, with a glacier in the background?! 🇮🇸 • We’re heading up north next week so my Sunday evening is filled with packing for the family adventures 🧔🏼👩🏻👶🏻 #LayoutlinesIceland

‘Hairy houses’ • I love these little buildings, you find them scattered across the countryside here in Iceland. They were mainly used by sheep farmers. 🐏 • Interesting story, the Viking tells me that these huts were also used by farmers overnight. Some have timber floors and the sheep would be kept beneath, in a kind of basement. Heat rises and so this would help to heat the hut for the farmer. • That sure would be a mess to clean up the next morning!! 🇮🇸 #LayoutlinesIceland

@icelandfamilylife

The Viking • I often get asked if we met in Iceland. We actually met in Edinburgh, on a night out. I was on a hen night and he was over with some mates on a football trip. 🇮🇸⠀ •⠀ We’ve been married for 2 years next week!! 💕⠀ •⠀ Head over to @ketoreykjavik to follow him (and help encourage him to post more) 🙌🏼 #LayoutlinesIceland

Iceland / ‘Home’ • for those of you who’re new followers - hi (or rather hæ hæ) 👋🏼 welcome along. ⠀ •⠀ If you’ve just followed after a quick browse, it might look like we live on a tropical island or in the sunshine at least ☀️☃️ but in actual fact, we live in Reykjavík, Iceland 🇮🇸 and this is a little more realistic to what it looks like. ⠀ •⠀ We (me, the Viking & baby Mia) have just returned from our adventures - 2 whole months of travel 💃🏻 (Scotland, the Dominican Republic & Crete). ☀️ Amazing right?! Yes!! We celebrated our honeymoon (almost 2 years after getting married - life got in the way but boy did we deserve that treat 🙌🏼 ) & Mia’s 1st Birthday with family and friends. 👶🏻💕👏🏼🎂⠀ •⠀ If you are new then welcome along. I’ll be sharing more of iceland soon as we’re off on some road trips 🚗 down south next week and up north the following week.🇮🇸⠀ •⠀ Make sure to turn on the notifications so you don’t miss a post and watch the stories to see what we’re up to.🙏🏼⠀ •⠀ If you’re in Iceland, say hi 👋🏼 ⠀ •⠀ In the meantime, I’m downloading and editing pictures and vlog footage from the last few adventures ✈️ so stay tuned👩🏻‍💻!! ⠀ •⠀ And for a little intro / background...I’m Sonia and I’m from Scotland 👩🏻 I met my Viking, Ingimar 🧔🏼 on a night out in Edinburgh where I infamously told him “no one lives in Iceland” so naturally now I do. We married almost 2 years ago and have a little 1 years old Valkyrie, Mia 👶🏻 #MiaNicolson 💕⠀ •⠀ I’m an architect, online educator, YouTuber & most importantly, Mummy 💁🏻‍♀️ (see Layoutlines.com for more info) ⠀ •⠀ 📷 check out #LayoutlinesIceland for more of beautiful Iceland 🇮🇸

First Day of Summer • so it’s reached a high of 13’c here in Reykjavík this morning. 13’c!! I think the Viking melted. But seriously, I have to admit, I kinda miss the snow now it’s all gone. Anyone else?⠀ •⠀ This past week my insta feed has been full of sunny pictures of Scotland 🙌🏼 yes, you read that correctly. They’ve had 24’c and we’re here with maybe 8’c.⠀ •⠀ The first day of summer is traditionally grey in Iceland but let’s see... some vitamin D would be lovely. What do you have planned for this summer? ⠀ ⠀ #LayoutlinesIceland

Oukaimeden Snow ! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A place where you can find peace even if it's cold.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A place where people are really friendly and so kind.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A place where blue and white match exactly to calm you down.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The idea of skiing in africa is quite interesting and truthfully exciting!!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I stayed in Marrakesh that night because I was told that if I left early I would get there right on time for the ski lifts to open and be able to ski the entire day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On top of it the hotel had booked me a fully dedicated driver for the day; it was pretty good.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As we drove towards the mountain, it became more and more real that we were going to ski in Africa! As soon as we reached the ski resort, the view is just stunning.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The rental equipment is low quality and expensive but still enjoyable.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One should make sure that they pick the best of what they have at the rental shop... Sometimes it gets a bit frustrating but nonetheless fun!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The snow is a bit hard to ski on but it was such an incredible day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!! A MUST DO ACTIVITY!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #snowlandscape #layoutlinesIceland #mountains #swisslandscape #Valsesia #montagna #gotfan #snow #mountainlover #invalsesia #mountaintop #nature #naturelover #snowy #panorama #landscape #snowylandscape #white #bnw #beautyofsuomi #onlyinfinland #landscapephoto #visitsaariselk #cloudyskies #sestriere #vialattea #vialatteaski #piemonte #piedmont #italia

The Viking Dad (or Pabbi in Icelandic) • he’s been incredible this past week whilst I slowly get back on my feet. But he didn’t find parenthood easy at first. I think it’s harder for Dad’s. We Mums have 9 months to get into the roll but for the Dads, out pops a baby and suddenly their world is very different. This week he’s been doing it all from playgroups and music group to feeds, nappy changes, nap time and is even out on the buggy gang walk right now - he’s a natural!! #LayoutlinesIceland

Blönduós • 4 years ago, on a typically stormy Icelandic day, my Viking took me up to this cliff (yup, a cliff edge) and said ... “I think I love you” 💙 he’s quite the romantic!! . It’s post-op day 3 and he’s doing a great job looking after Mia and I. . Check out my stories for some of the treats he’s been making me as I recover in bed from my op. #LayoutlinesIceland

Wee Icelandic Kirkja • Interesting fact: the Icelandic word for church is kirk (and it’s the same in Scots).

Today we celebrated Konudagur / Woman’s Day here in Iceland. It’s a day where woman traditionally get the day off and are pampered by their husband.

Every city has them. In some form. Buildings like this, sitting boldly in the developing area of Grandi. This makes a cities patchwork to me. The old beside the new, the solid by the transparent, the crumbling home of many loving memories beside the shining glass towers, unoccupied and overpriced. #ReykjavikSketcher
