    ... really cold and hard to hold more, then a minute. The tour only lasted thirty to forty minutes but was good and enjoyable. Most of us were glad we decided to wait.

    On the road again and headed back to Skalakot. Its dinnertime and we decide to stop at a Bistro for dinner. I had the chicken pasta, which was great, and Tammy ordered the meat soup. Since this Iceland, I have learned that anytime they don’t tell you what kind of meat you are getting, it is ...

    Another great dinner and drinks for us. At this point, we find out that the hairy massage guy has offered our pretty young female guides a free half hour massage. We later learned from Mummi that the massage guy had approached him a while back asking that he refer his guests for massages. Mummi told him that if he gave the guides a free massage, they would probably talk it up to us. Well, these are young girls and one in particular, Karolina, ...

    ... I am so tired and wet; I think “hell, let him throw me. If he does, I’ll give him a good kick and let him drag me the rest of the way. He knows where he is going and I am sure someone will wake me up when we get there!”

    We pull into Thorsmork and unsaddle our horses at the paddock. The horses are then allowed to roam Thorsmork as they please. This is a lodge we stay at for the next couple of days called the Volcano Huts with a few cabins, ...

    ... I listened to large rocks bounce off and roll under my car. I joined a small group and we strapped on some crampons to the bottom of our shoes and grabbed some ice picks before we slowly made our way up the glacier for a 3 hour walk. Along the way we looked at the different aspects of the glacier such as crevasses, dirt cones, and sink holes. The scenery from the tour was quite remarkable and I couldn't believe I was actually walking on a ...
