Iceland, Part 1

Back in February we visited Iceland, so what to do on a hot day? Revisit the cool of a stunning, icy landscape to cool down in this hot summer.

Day 1 and a buffet breakfast to greet us, full of nutritious options, green smoothies and Icelandic water. Healthy, polite sign too.

Day 2

An early start in the dark the next day to visit The Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa. We had booked an 8am slot, so there was only a twinkle of light as we arrived.

The water was a balmy temperature with vapours of steaming swirling about with a blizzard above my head. Made me feel alive!

Back to Reykjavík in the afternoon and a stroll around the bustling capital and the most populous city in Iceland.

Hallgrimskirkja, the Lutheran Church, dominates the city.

Lego like houses, a view from the top of the church tower.

A bit of wildlife on the city pond.

Very tame Redwing!

Cycling is popular when the weather permits.

and so are arty socks and stockings…

Quite right too, another polite notice.

To be continued…

    Very impressed by this blog. I’ve always thought that Iceland is somewhere I’d like to visit, and I’m absolutely certain of it now – if only to get a pair of knee-his covered in puffins…..Lovely place.

      It was Sheila. I was impressed by the politeness of the people. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend that you go, its remote, wild landscape is as close to the Arctic as I’ll ever go I think.
