We made it! 6 hours is a short international flight but still we creaked and cracked a bit getting off the plane in Reykjavic. We were immediately faced with our first challenge...the agency we had reserved a rental car from was not listed anywhere in the arrivals area of the airport!

We stopped at Kirkjubaejarklausrer for a cup of strong coffee. This was a cute little village. The ...
