... a little bakery or a cafe and have some breakfast (or a midnight snack thanks to jet lag). Unfortunately we didn't count on a couple of things; first we arrived in Iceland on Sunday morning and aparently nothing is open before 11a on Sundays and second, most of these "towns" consisted of a collection of farm houses off a gravel road. We finally hit a town with a stoplight and decided to opt for a grocery store where we got ...

... we are not sure why but we will find out as we go. We then decide to check into our our accommodation for the night, Hotel Anna, which is a very small (seven rooms) but well reputed hotel. We arrive at reception and the lass looks a bit bemused when we tell her our name and has to call the owner.

... we pack up and head to the pool. Only a 5 minute walk from the house, we found an AMAZING pool with waterslides, hot tubs, saunas, toys and so much more...with a view of the most amazing landscape I have ever seen.

Tonight we are resting up for a big day tomorrow...zodiac boat tour of the islands, followed by a bus tour of the main island. And...likely then back to the pool!

Enjoy the photos - this place ...

Although my LP guide indicated that admission was free, the price to get through the gate was just under U.S. $6. Well worth it, regardless. On the road and surrounded by lava fields and mountains again, ...

... we tried to go next to a glacier at Solheimajokull, but after 3 km on a bad gravel and pothole road we turned back. Without a high rise suspension we thought we would damage the undercarriage of our car, the only part of the vehicular that cannot be insured. We even had sand and rock insurance just in case we got into a sand and rock wind storm that could ruin the whole outside of the car. Apparently such a storm occurred the week before ...
