... as some fresh lamb pepperoni sticks to go along with the rest of our food. We setup our feast @ a nearby picnic table and enjoyed the Mountain views all around. The lamb pepperoni was absolutely delicious! We had Carol grab another package in the Visitor Centre to enjoy later in the day.
With time passing us by rather quickly yet again, we left Skaftafell National Park near 3:00pm with another hour to go before we ...
... or puffin, so we're hoping to just try that somewhere and not have to have a whole meal of it...we even saw horse steak. gross.) But everything we've had so far has been very tasty and fresh, so thank goodness for that.
We also found this cool building down on the water called the Harpa Concert hall, which we got to walk around in. It's really pretty and has some sweet architecture. After italian food we came back to the hotel, dropped off ...
... whale, puffin and shag. I tried a tiny bit of each but didn't think it was very good. They said they had horse steak the other night and it was very good. (I'm not trying horse again since having it in Slovenia. Blecgh.) There were some gypsy-ish looking people at the table next to us drinking a lot of wine that decided to be our friends. Tony got to do most the talking to them, though Jen got roped in too.
Made it out of the restaurant without the crazy ...
... It felt so novel, and extremely refreshing.
Upon landing I realized we had slightly under packed when it comes to warm clothing. I had brought a few sweaters, which I got more use out of than I had intended. We both ended up having to buy toques in Reykjavik. It was cold. And you'd think as Canadians we could have toughed it out.
We got to our hotel without any issue. The bus ride through the stark Icelandic landscape was way ...
Today we woke up in no rush as the only thing on our morning agenda was an eleven o'clock in-water massage. We went to the lagoon and soaked for a half hour and then were brought intro the massage area of the 39 degree C water lagoon. After being helped onto floating mats we were covered by a bath towel that was warmed in lagoon water.

TravelPod Member ReviewsBlue Lagoon Clinic Grindavik
You couldn't ask for a better location, set amidst the mossy lava fields with the surreal powder blue thermal water of the blue lagoon all around but for the luxury price tag, I expected a little more luxury rather than clinic.
Although the view from the rooms are unparalleled, inside there were no toiletries provided, no mini bar, no wifi. Very basic and disappointing although the blankets were lovely.
The private lagoon is something special, though again, the clinic side of the operation makes it feel a little more treatment than luxury. For such a premium price, I expected more.
