    Nice, comfortable place to stay. It is not fancy, but a good balance between budget and extragavance. Itwas a great location near the city center. The room had a private bathroom with shower. The bathroom was small as expected, butwas very cleanand updated. The wifi was included and worked well. The one thing that made this an exceptionallyniceplace was the very friendly service. The owner, Gunner, was very responsive to all emails, and even offered early check in without us requesting it. I would defiitely recommend this location.

    We arrivd in Rekjavik at 6:35am local time. The owner of the place we were staying said we could come and settle in as early as we want. We eventually found the place - it was near the center of Rekjavik. I expected Rekjavik to be a quaint, pretty small town. But it was pretty modern, with some very modern buildings, interspersed with little parks …

    ... and Camlika showed us around our cute cottage. The house instructions included the rare warning: "No swimming in the lake - hypothermia." Exhausted, we set about making the bedrooms suitable for sleep by using our favorite travel trick - covering the windows with black trash bags using painters tape (painters tape doesn't damage the walls). We have discovered that many northern counties, especially Scandinavian ones, value sunlight to such a degree that window ...

    ... got some stuff picked up and then arranged a city tour with one of a fleet of new electric tuk-tuks. Great young chap, very proud of his country, we ran all over town and he told me the story of Iceland from settlement in the 9th century, to Danish rule, farming, fishing, and how they gained independence I really loved. In 1944, while Denmark was occupied by Germany, Iceland simply declared their independence, Denmark had no ...

    ... see and learn about who these natural hot springs were created. After spending about two and a half hours in the blue lagoon we then left to go back to the hostel so the students who arrived today morning could relax for a while. Later on we were also told that we were missing two students which had not yet arrived in reykjavik due to flight delays, so our climate leader had to ...

    Flying with the Northern Lights

    We were in the air over the Hudson Bay and we seemed like we were higher than the setting crescent moon next to Venus. The green sheet of the northern lights was in the sky! What a special night. Just an incredible event. Can't wait for tonight. Besides that the flight was uneventful. Except that the generator they use to start the plane engines failed TWICE before we left. When it failed the first time the lights and the air conditioning stopped. It ...
