Óvegur: Un-road

Hello all! I finally got around to making a place to write and share about my gap year. I couldn't decide what to name it, until I was reading this blog and came across this lovely word, Ovegur.
Humans often use the words in their languages to describe things. The word “vegur” is one of those words. (It means “road”.)
But sometimes they use words to describe things that are not really things.
“Ó-vegur” is one of those words. It means “un-road.”
I think my gap year and life in general haven't followed one path in particular, or a path at all, so it seemed an apt word. (I also love the Icelandic language...)
