Ha! I knew recapping Iceland would take all the way until September. And I still can't believe it was 4 months ago. Wow.
Day 9: Since the winds were so bad the night before, we headed back out to the beach and finally got some shots of the 3 trolls and basalt columns. Several reasons to go back to Iceland - see puffins. We were there too early in the season, but Vik is supposedly a good place to see them.
We made the drive back to Reykavik and stocked up on things to bring back to the states (CANDY, or scandies, and mustard to recreate Icelandic hot dogs at home). Vern booked us a night at this super neat and very historical Airbnb. That night we met up with one of Vern's friends from Denmark and barhopped, going back to the bar from the week before hoping the same awesome bartenders would be there. They weren't. That night became a blur after a certain point. Lots of drinks. Lots of American songs. Lots of Germans. Vern and I both agree that night should have ended much earlier than it did. But c'est la vie, right?
Day 10: Last day :( Vern and I barely get ourselves together to get some b'fast over at Kex Hostel and head over to the airport for my flight home. She got to stay an extra night and hang out with the awesome bartenders. They were sipping on G&T's while I was eating a lame salad at the Boston airport. NEXT TIME! Cause there will be a next time.
Summary post on Iceland/2015/life coming soon.
