Iceland: Tuesday 24th March

Sometime in the 1980s, I read The Hardy Boys: Arctic Patrol Mystery, and was fascinated by the fact that in Iceland, people were listed by their first name in phone books.

I had wanted to visit Iceland since then and last year I took Icelandic classes for 10 weeks to find out more about the language.

On Tuesday 24th March I travelled to Iceland.

When I stepped onto the plane, I noticed the seat covers had Icelandic phrases on them and that made me smile:


Here are some clouds I saw:


I travelled by flybus to my hotel (Hótel Hafnarfjörður) and then wandered to a supermarket, where I bought some baked apple skyr (similar to yogurt) and some kleinur (twisted doughnuts) to eat.

I stayed in the town of Hafnarfjörður, which is the third most populous town in Iceland (after Reykjavík and Kópavogur). It is situated in lava fields and has a large population of elves and other hidden people.

It was all fantastic! :)

The hotel building looks awesome! I really need to get to Iceland sometime, just googling for images of Hafnarfjörður makes it look stunning.

I definitely recommend visiting Iceland!
