... Arnarsson set sail for Iceland (which was already known about from other Vikings who had set sail there). From his boat he threw his wooden seat pillars (a mark of his being a chieftain) and decided that he would settle wherever they hit land. After three years of searching along the coast by his servants, the pillars were finally found at the site of present day Reykjavik. The name means "smoky bay" and was so called because of the ...

... drive from Reykjavik and the drive was an eye opener of sorts. The road passes through what can only be described as a lunar landscape. Other than a few buildings dotted around, there is nothing but black rocks, ash and sand. Amazing! Oh yes, and it is freezing cold.

We hit up the little grocery near the hotel for cheese, crackers, carrots and more M&Ms -- tomorrows' ...

... be imposed by Pixie.... After travelling through a very cool 6 km long tunnel under an arm of the Atlantic, we arrived in Reykjavik. How strange to be in an actual city, even if it's only the size of Saskatoon! Two out of three Icelanders live here. It's a very compact city so we sadly returned our SAD rental car. Even though it was the most beat-up car we've ever rented, it served us well. On our list of must-do's in ...
