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.
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?
