Day 1 – Reykjavik

Today was spent recovering from the flights and trying to stay awake to get acclimated to GMT. We explored in and around Reykjavik. Some of today’s highlights included Haarpa Concert Hall, Hafnin (the harbor,) and Sólfarið – Sun Voyager (a beautiful piece on the Sculpture and Shore walk.) And yes we hit “that” museum! After a wonderful, but expensive, meal at Hafnin we retired to the smallest hotel room that I have ever had to rest our weary bodies. Looking forward to seeing what tomorrow brings.

Day 0 – Travel day

Safe and sound here in Reykjavik! 20 hours total travel time from when I left Ripple to when we secured in our rental car. All three of yesterday’s flights were packed like sardines, but Delta delivered us AND our luggage safe and sound within 15 minutes of our expected arrival time.

Almost out of Texas!

Made it to the airport with plenty of time to spare, somehow both of us made the TSA pre-check list! Soon we will be in the air on our way… At this point even the 15-hour upcoming flight time doesn’t hinder the excitement.

Almost there!

Well, Iceland is less than a week away now. ~10 hours of flight time, with a 2.5 hour layover in both Atlanta and New York for a total travel time of 15:05, NOT counting ground transportation! Could be worse, the return flight is 20:42, the things we do for $232 round trip airfare…

I’ll try to post regular updates and photos while I’m travelling depending on what kind of internet access I can find.
