Me and my husband braved the outrageous petrol prices and went for a (very short) drive today. We try to use the car as little as possible, both for economical as well as environmental reasons. Having a teenager with a new driving licence messes that plan up a bit, he really wants to drive everywhere when he is home, but he is at boarding school during the week so the petrol “damage” isn’t very bad.
The average petrol price per liter in Iceland today is 245.50 króna, which is just about 2 dollars or 1.5 euros. That means that the gallon costs just about 982 or just under 8 dollars or 6 euros.
But I still feel the most important reason for reducing the use of the car as much as possible, is the environmental effects. Besides, walking is good for you.
Here are some photos from my (short) drive today:
This is an old photo. I have a nasty cold so I’m not going out, although I would like to. The sky today is exactly the same color as this though, gray and not very inspiring. There is much more snow though.
I’m all done with the body of the brown sweater and I’ve started knitting the front bands. I have also started embroidering a the green and white hat. There will be photo when I’m a little better.
Until then check out my updated free pattern page, and my resource page. I’m updating them both these day’s and new free patterns will be added soon.
This is an old photo (my camera in being cleaned) but the winter is still going strong. The snow melts a bit, comes again and sometimes the roads is closed by fierce storms. I like the snow, it’s beautiful and it keeps the air crisp and fresh. I could do without the storms though, but they pass quickly and I just stay inside while they shake the house.
