And after France, we went to Iceland! We flew into Keflavik, drove to Reykjavik, and stayed for two days, mostly wandering around Reykjavik. It was a brisk 55* F (a welcome change from the 80s F of Paris, and definitely better than the 90-100 F friends were getting at home!)

I'm 95% sure that's the Arctic Ocean. (It's not like they labelled it for us.)

Coca-Cola has this thing in other countries right now where they
put "share a Coca-Cola with" and names. Also, Coke in other countries
is made with real sugar, not HFCS. YUM.

Delicious sandwich for lunch. It was Thai-style, with chicken,
peanut sauce, cilantro, and mango.

Clyde and some krona, the currency of Iceland. (They accept Euro and
dollars in most places though.)

Pretty lava sculpture near the water.

Bike-shaped gate to keep cars out of this street.

I got myself a new little friend: a puffin! He joined Clyde in my bag
on the way home.
So that was our trip! We had a great time, but it's always good to be home.

  1. Neat! Iceland is not one of those places I would think about going to but it's definitely a unique stop on your way home. I love the lava sculpture.

    Looks like you guys had a great time!
