Friends, what a difference an actual night’s sleep makes! It would have been better if I’d used my eye mask because there are about a bajillion hours of daytime here right now, but I was too tired to find it right next to my bed. 🤷🏻♀️
Today was volcano hike day, the main reason for our trip. It was one of the coolest things I have ever seen, and I didn’t even make it the whole way up. The path was pretty steep and at one point, it was rocky and narrow and uneven and I just didn’t feel good about going. Heights do give me the wheezies. So I sat down and had a rest while Chris continued on. When she came back, we realized you could see the crater from where I was after all, so I (sort of) did it!
Then we stopped for a coffee at this cute little harbor town, Grindavik.
Then it was fish and chips for dinner.
We were originally going to end the day with Thingvellir, but we decided at the last minute to try out Sky Lagoon, a geothermal spa. We went to the Blue Lagoon the last trip, and I immediately loved this one more. It had a better vibe and I was more comfortable, and after two days of hiking, it was some welcome relaxation. The only photos we have of us in it, though, are on our camera, so you’ll have to wait for those. But here is one of us outside the entrance!
A great second day all around.
