Icelandic Horses and Friday Fours

I am back! Back home from Germany. Since I am feeling quite jet-lagged and have not had a good look at the photos I took I thought, I would at least join Hilary for some Follow Friday Four Fill In Fun with a short post in order to get back into the swing of things. And, of course, show you two of my photos. These are my friend and one of her Icelandic horses, Solfaxi. She rides him, too. But that day we went for a ride in her sulky. It took me a little to get used to the weird movement, but in the end it was great fun. Helped, of course, by the weather clearing up a lot for a little while.

  1. Seeing new (and old) places and people is my favorite thing about traveling.
  2.  Pickled ginger (a staple with sushi) tastes like soap water (imho).
  3. When in doubt, ask a friend or family. Or google it, but do not take what ever you find on the internet as THE truth, but investigate further with actual people
  4. Is there the secret of life? I think there is not one secret for all, but everybody, who has found it, has there own. It is so different as every person is different.

    • Thanks, Tamara, it is good to be back, although playing catch-up is not one of my favorites…
      Actually I do like cilantro, a lot, and I also like ginger, just the pickled sushi variety of ginger – nope, not that.

  1. As much as I love sushi, I’m definitely not a huge fan of pickled ginger. Middle daughter could eat it everyday if she had the chance. She loves that stuff.
    Beautiful pic of the horse. Bet it was an interesting ride on that sulky. It looks like fun. 🙂

  2. I agree with you on all counts! I love to travel, that horse is amazing!

    I have the same reaction to cilantro, which is used so commonly in these parts, tastes like dishwater! I’ve read that there is a percentage of the population that has this reaction.

    What? We can’t believe everything we read on the Internet? I’m so disillusioned now. 😉 Seriously, it amazes me how many folks actually do take it as factual.

    I suspect that there are indeed many secrets to life and maybe along the way most of us discover one or two. 🙂

    • Always nice to find like minded people 🙂 Although, I do like cilantro, but not ginger. And you are right, there are quite few people who don’t like cilantro or even have an allergic reaction to it. Thank God, not me.

  3. Completely agree with you about the web and also about traveling! Love your photos especially the first one – that horse is beautiful : ) have a lovely weekend and a good rest x

    • It sure is, Hilary, Faxi is a cutie, but, being an Icelandic Horse, way to short for me. Pulling the sulky was o.k.
      I am so sorry, I planted this thought about ginger into your head. Sooo, just eat it, chew it, and then remember how much you love it!! 🙂

  4. beautiful horse! what fun that must have been! I have great memories of my grandfather taking me on buggy rides with his giant all black Canadian horses pulling. they were so gorgeous.

    so true about the internet. but it’s amazing how many people believe everything they read on it!
