I spent the last two weeks without ever meeting a night. Sunlight reigned over darkness.
I experienced sunsets, or possibly dawns, without being able to tell them apart, You would tell me that sunset is towards the West, dawn comes from the East but that wasn’t true. Both came from the North.
Yes, you guessed right, I was in Iceland. I am writing these few lines, as I am back home, noticing that in two weeks I never had to take my wallet out. Whatever I had to pay could be settled with my Apple watch or with my smartphone, including paying a few cents to open up a lavatory door.
In the middle of no-where I parked the car in a vast empty lot. There was a sign asking to use the QRcode to pay for the parking, simply saying that the fee would help in keeping the place fully functional. It was just a click and I complied willingly.
Now I am back to Italy, and feeling to have stepped back into the past. On newspaper the big news is that starting today, July 1st, all service providers will have to accept credit/debit cards payment. I am pretty sure it will be an uphill battle.
It felt so good in Iceland settling everything via the cyberspace, taking a look every day of how much I spent and how I spent the money.
