It is Friday and it is time to go home already. We pack up and I check out. I told the desk clerk about our adventure in the hotel spa , his reaction was that of disgust and waved the 10. euro fee. Thank goodness! We drop the bags and head off to see Hronn for a visit then do a little last minute sh...

Today we went on a tour with Reykjavik Excursions called "Gullfoss, Geysir & Þingvellir" It was from 10:30-4:30 and we went to Thingvellir National Park, Geysir (to watch the geyser...) and Gullfoss waterfall. It was a good trip with lots of great sights and photo ops and no rude bus people other th...

Today (Yesterday) was nice.

That's a great opening line... but it was nice. It didn't start off that way though. I woke up around 5am and just messed around on the internet for a while until mom woke up. We went for breakfast, which was good, then she went for a run in the hail and sleet and came bac...

Our day started with a great breakfast, our package includes a full  breakfast not a continental one. We paced ourselves and were not hungry again until dinner. We did love the sign asking the really hungry tourists not to make a pack lunch from the buffet. As I sat and ate, the rain was hitting the...

So one of my goals is to possibly spell Reykjavik right on the first try. It looks right in that sentence, but I'm not sure. I've spelled it Reykavik, Rejavik, Reyjavik, but Google always knows what I mean, so we're all good.

The flight over was reasonably good. Aside from a massive fibromyalgia flar...

Hannah and I are off to Iceland today.  Icelandair was  having a amazing seat sale and I could not resist jumping at the opportunity to  head over to the country of my grandfather's birth for a third time. When I asked Hannah what she wanted to do on her first visit to Iceland her list came fas...

Our trip to Portugal would not be complete without me giving advice.  I can't help myself.

Visa and Mastercard

We discovered that these are not widely accepted. It cost a Portuguese merchant 10% of each sale so many chose not to accept it. So bring cash or be able to use your debit card. Small restaur...
