Ice Ice Baby

Well, we are in Iceland and it is freezing cold. It has been -3 degrees Celsius most days and so we have all been dressed with so many layers to try and stay warm with our inappropriate Australian clothing. This country is surprisingly more incredible than I imagined. The people are lovely (except the cranky bakery girl), the landscape is unbelievable, and there are so many beautiful things to see. The tap water is the best we have all ever tasted and the hot water has a smell of sulfur as the water is coming from the geothermal pools.

Today we did the Golden Circle tour, which took us to a number of incredible natural sights around Iceland. We saw the ├×ingvellir National Park, Gullfoss waterfall, the Geysers Strokkur and Geysir and a number of other sights including my highlight, Icelandic Horses. It was great to get out of the city and at times felt like we were trekking through Antarctica.

Tomorrow we are off to The Blue Lagoon, and ready to rest our weary bodies in the geothermal spas.

We have been using a number of different cameras, but can only share the digital ones until we get the different film developed.
