cheap enough place to say in a great location, rooms clean, although shower is sulphury as expected, breakfast adequate and they are happy to have it ready early for early trips etc. Staff sorted trip to blu lagoon, airport bus with no complications. Chines place round corner good for sub 10 quid meal. Hot dogs from stand nearby cheap but small - order 2!

Then in the distance we heard a car horn, we looked at each other and then down to the round about where there was a figure that jumped out of a car and started moving around it, B thought it might be a good idea to go down and maybe use a phone to call the bus, so I stayed up on the ramp just in case, it had turned out that the driver, Matt had not had enough time to brake and collect us so he ...
... for this purpose all around the edges of the lagoon. You can see some just in front of the ear of the dude behind Melissa and on the hairline of the woman on the far left.
