Something which will stay with me forever

Something which will stay with me forever

Many thanks for all your help in planning this short break; we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Iceland, despite the weather. It was almost nonstop rain and the Northern Lights Tour on both Sat & Sun nights, were cancelled due to the weather. A real shame, because although we knew there was no guarantee of seeing the Lights, we hoped that if not successful the first night, we could try on Sunday. I found the hotel very handy for the centre of the city, but very basic and in need of some re-decoration. We enjoyed our walking tour of Reykjavik, but found it very strange to go sightseeing in the dark, which meant the photographs we took may not be very good. I haven't put them on the computer yet, but will do and see what they are like. The Settlement Museum was wonderful, really informative and being interactive was great. It was very wet and windy on the day we went on the Grand Circle Tour, but it was still very enjoyable, made even more so I think, by there being only 4 of us in the minibus and having a guide who was so enthusiastic and attentive, she was a gem. Again to be out walking across to the seat of the world's oldest parliament before the sun had risen, is something which will stay with me forever. Your suggestion of combining a trip to the Blue Lagoon with the return to the airport, was brilliant, even though I am not a swimmer, I was able to walk and then sit, in the Lagoon before walking across to the waterfall to get the full benefit of that warm water massage on by shoulders. I even slept on the flight home. The food was excellent, we had very, very fresh fish, which tasted so different from that we can buy here and sampled the famous land and goose, not to mention the sweets. Everyone we met or spoke to was very friendly, only too willing to share information about their beautiful country and delights. They were all so knowledgeable, whatever we wanted to know, and it seemed that they knew the answer. I would like to go back, take photographs in daylight or on a dry day and just maybe, try again to see the Northern Lights. Again many thanks. Barbara
