Flag of Iceland  ,
Saturday, June 20, 2009

Okay, they've got something backwards here.  The first stop when I got of the plane at Keflavik Airport was... a security checkpoint!  HUH???  What the hell?  I mean a full pre-boarding check...take off shoes...laptop out...walk through the x-ray...  Don't these guys understand that the terrorists have already blown up the plane by now?  There was a little sign explaining the reason why we had to endure this which was essentially that it's only for passengers arriving from non-EU countries because their safety precautions aren't in line with EU guidelines.  Now I appreciate that they tried to console me with their explanation and it sounds reasonable except that I've flown to EU countries from non-EU countries and have never had to go through a security upon arrival.  So in the end I am offended that they think I am that stupid and terrified.  And, really, are the terrorists targeting Iceland? 

That aside, the descent was beautiful.  I took some pictures out of the window to show what Iceland looks like at 11:30 p.m.!!!  It's definitely going to take some adjusting to all this light!  But I'm looking forward to the many natural wonders and wildlife I'll see.
