    This day actually started at 1:30am Iceland time (9:30pm EST). The flight was only 4 1/2 hours arriving a bit after 6am in dark, cold Iceland. No food on this flight but, it was comfortable none the less. After we got our luggage, some Krona (money) and our bus transfer, we got on the bus for the one hour ride to downtown Reykjavik.

    ... with the artists getting permission from the owners make their mark on the buildings. Just as the daylight peaked out late in the morning, darkness creeped into the sky around 4:30pm. The church featured a free concert at 6pm so we decided what better way to spend an hour than in a warm, comfy church. Not exactly what we expected, but still lovely listening to the organ ...

    ... didn't sleep well again as my body seems confused, am I still jet lagged? We were flying home at 16:30 so decided to treat ourselves to the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa just before as it's on the way to the airport. It is one of the most visited attractions in Iceland, a massive heated bathtub/pool (heated naturally by volcanoes) right in the rift of the European and American tectonic plates. It is located in a lava field so as you drive in the ...
