    ... to me was that there were several corporate groups there having their company outings followed by meetings after everyone is relaxed and comfy! Hey - - - that sounds great to this meeting planner!!

    The Blue Lagoon pool is surrounded by lava rock and the pool bottom is made of a blue'ish white residue that was left over by the volcanoes. The photo in this post doesn't begin to do it justice. The temperature is ...

    ... space saying aliens were going to land at the top of the glacier. Tour operators took them up there - for a fee, of course - but, alas, there were no sightings of extraterrestrials. As we headed into the mountains, suddenly the rain turned to snow. Everything was white, but it didn't seem to slow the traffic down. I had never seen snow so thick!

    ... 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 ...

    ... the Westman Islands) and the biggest of them, Heimaey, is populated by over 4,000 people. Unbelievable that anyone would want to live there! The others, of which there are about eleven, are uninhabited. We find out from the on site booking office at Thorlakshofn that a tourist ferry, the Herjolfur, goes around the island a number of times a day (depending on weather conditions) but we have missed the final sailing for the day. We take the ...
