This hotel appears to be a boarding school residence that is used as a tourist hotel in the off school season. There are two buildings, an older and newer wing. We stayed in the newer wing on the top floor. The room is large with two writing desks, two sets of closets and a mini kitchen with microwave, fridge and sink. There were no utensils provided. The included breakfast with the room was plentiful. All the staff were very friendly and willing to help out where needed.

We are slowing down a tad – the distances between our next stops are not as far. Today was a leisurely drive from Sauðárkrókur to Akureyri, Iceland's second largest city (17,000 town folks). To put it in perspective it reminds me of driving into Kamloops BC.
First business of the day was a swim in the 25 metre infinity pool at Hofsó …

Hitting up year round Christmas stores seems to be something we do if there happens to be one available, we hit the Quebec City and Montreal Christmas stores earlier in the year. Akureyri's Christmas store is the best of the bunch to date.
There are a lot of interesting ...
... Hevrir is Myvatn Nature Baths or the Northern Icelandic alternative to the more well-known Blue Lagoon. We had a quick lunch before throwing on our bathing suits and settling in for a relaxing soak in the beautiful sun and warm waters. There are a few differences between the Nature Baths and the Blue Lagoon, both have stunning scenery around but the edge goes to the blue lagoon on that front. In terms of relaxation though you will find the Nature Baths to be far quieter ...
... minimum. One more stop tomorrow in Iceland and then we are off for Greenland. And for crying out loud keep quiet under the bed so that the cabin boy doesn’t find you!! It has been nice having you along. The Captain said it was 55 degrees today but I think he must have been tipping it a bit, because it seemed much colder than that to ...
