We are on our way home.
It's been a good trip with lots of fun and interesting things to see...but two weeks away from home is quite a while, so we are ready to return.
Nonetheless on the way to the airport, we stopped at the Blue Lagoon. This is a fantastic place that is billed as a "must see" in Iceland. Actually, it's a "must do."
The lagoon is a huge man-made pond that is filled with natural warm mineral-rich water. The depth of the water is 3-4 feet deep throughout. And fortunately it is only 15 minutes from the airport. What a great way to unwind before a five hour flight.
We arrived at 10 a.m. and spent about 45 minutes in the water. You can give yourself a free mudpack, get a massaging shower under a waterfall, or just sit on an underwater bench and mellow out in the warm mineral water.
A coffee and a snack while we waited for the bus to the airport...it was perfect.
Arrival at the airport at 12:30 meant a long wait for the flight, but we were relaxed and ready to just sit down and recount the many, many memories from Copenhagen to St. Petersburg; from Hamburg to Berlin to Reykjavik.
It's been a great time.
