moving to London

Sometimes, to get closer you have to go further away. That’s what I did four years ago : I left Iceland and everything that was dear to me because I wanted to be introduced to unfamiliar elements. I was leading a beautiful life at home - musical evenings, good books, good films, getting plastered with my friendsùbut sometimes you feel like you’re only using 20 percent of yourself and just once before you die you want to use 100 per cent.

I wanted danger, I wanted threats. It’s like Bruce Willis in Die Hard : when the ceiling’s collapsed, the walls are on fire and 53 terrorists are after you, something comes out that wouldn’t normally. You do things you would never have done on a normal Tuesday.
