Last night was eventful. Woken by the sound of excited chatter at 1am, we headed to look for the Northern Lights. Our luck was in! Some saw more than others but most were able to catch a glimpse of this amazing spectacle.
After a night of disturbed sleep we woke up tired, but looking forward to a visit to the Blue Lagoon. Faces smothered in the miracle healing mud mask, we enjoyed almost 2 hours of bathing in the opaque turquoise geothermal pools. It was an amazing way to spend our last morning here in Iceland.
Next on the agenda was a visit to the Viking museum where we had lunch. Surprisingly, soup was not on the menu, which left some of us with soup withdrawal symptoms. A full size replica of a Viking ship made a beautiful canopy for us to eat underneath. Yet another opportunity to dress up as vikings made for a great afternoon.
Our time in Iceland has been amazing and we have seen incredible things; thank you Iceland!
