An Epic Journey to Iceland
This is at the airport This is the Santa Claus or Christmas year round attraction.
Our Quick trip to Akureyi.
This was an unplanned little venture to Iceland. Our younger daughter sent us an email while we were in Spain and thought we might like to just pop over to see her and our granddaughter in Akureyi for a few days. We thought oh why not we are retired no ties or commitments at present. So we did it we made reservations to fly out on the Sunday the 11th and it was cancelled several times that day and we even went to the airport for a nine o’clock departure and it was cancelled so we had to stay in a hotel . Karen and Emilio insisted we stay back in the Alicante house, so we did and so glad we did. We finally got out on the Monday night but had to stay over in Keflavik and then all day in Reykjavik domestic airport waiting for the best time to take off. We finally made it to Akureyi at 6.30pm greeted by our lovely daughter and granddaughter. Isis came running down the arrivals path to greet us.
We had a great time and saw many things. We were mostly there to visit Karen and Isis and Emilio came a few days later.
I am including here some wonderful photos of our experience.
Akureyi is a lovely little city with so much to offer for young and old. there are sports and activities all year long. Isis is in figure skating and football. The hot springs are everywhere so we went into the hot tubs several times. All the swimming pools in Iceland are out doors well atleast the ones in the north part of the island. Look forward to our next visit.
The theatre for drama and teaching.
I tried to get a better picture of the stop lights. the red lights are all in the shape of a heart.
The trolls in Iceland
northern lights we saw them from the balcony of karen’s house.
The hot pools and cold pools open air
yes there was snow but not as much and it wasn’t as cold as many places in Canada. 8 degrees above zero some days.Just a map to show you where we were from Reykjavik .
It was a lovely visit glad to be back in Spain where it is much warmer .Miss the family though.
