Looking Back on My Trip to Iceland

Last June I was lucky enough to travel to Iceland and embark on one wild adventure. My boyfriend’s family brought me along on their family vacation (again, I’m unbelievably lucky) and I got to see and do some very cool things.

The series features three ex-roommates, Mia, Ava, and Charlie, who start a fake band in order to sustain their bond after they’ve graduated and moved out of their Brooklyn apartment. Their band-practice room becomes a place of refuge, where they can escape together and share the tales of their daily struggles and triumphs.
