Tonight, I got take out Thai (I know, it's Iceland)! I was just craving it and it was really close to the hostel. I was joined at dinner by a lovely woman from Boston and then a woman from Greece and one from Switzerland. It was fun taking about travel with these women. Then they were off to watch soccer and I headed to my room. I need to get to bed early to be up at 4 am. Ugh!!
Hi! Welcome to my first non-work-related travel blog ever! I downloaded the Travelpod app for the iPad and will do my best to share some stories and photos over the next seven days while I'm in Iceland.
The cast of characters on this particular journey: Mike Sanger, Xenia Li, Rebecca Sanger and me. Iceland has been Xenia's dream vacation for years so for her birthday this year Mike surprised her with plane tickets here. Then I surprised them ...
Today was, in our opinion, the most important day of our tour as it included talks linking Wagner's The Ring with Iceland. We were really looking forward to these lectures, especially as they were the reason we had booked for this particular tour.
Siggi picked us up at 09:00 and took us to Deildartunguhver, a hot spring that has the highest flow in Europe and which supplies the heating for Reykjavik. The hot water is ...
... of way. Yes I joke about getting lost, but Reykjavik is not very big, and it doesn't take long to get used to the city. There is soo much to see and do! I did 4 half tours in my time there-whale watching, golden circle afternoon, horse back riding, and blue lagoon.- the first day was walking around Reykjavik, went to harpa and hallgrimiskirkja.

TravelPod Member ReviewsFosshotel Lind Reykjavík
I found this hotel on venere.com and was glad i picked it. It is located just inside the city center within walking distance of tons of major restaurants and bars. It is also right around the corner from the main shopping street of Laugavegur. The hotel also a offers a very decent breakfast from 6am till 10am, which is pretty great considering the high prices of downtown Reykjavik. The hotel does offer free parking (if you come to Iceland, you should rent a car. there are TONS of great things to see outside the city, and why pay for a tour when you are more than capable of driving a small rent a car to most attractions) but the lot is very small and they only have one remote to open the gates of the lot. So, to clarify, if you want to leave the lot, you need to get the remote from the front desk, pull out in front of the hotel, run back in to give them back the gate remote, and do the same thing when you arrive back. Not a big deal just a bit of an inconvenience. Other than that the place was great, clean rooms, black out curtains, and the front desk people were helpful, i would stay there again.
