Day 9: Blue Lagoon

It has been nine days of intense traveling. Droved over 1500km since the round-the-island trip began, we finally went back to where we started – Reykjavík . We drove around the town, visiting touristy places like Tjornin (the lake), Hallgrimskirkaja (the church) and along the coastline.

We had one of the best lunch in Iceland in the city center in a restaurant called Geysir. They serve very nice seafood soup (with lobster, fish, scallop, etc.) and some pan-fried fish. The capital is a green, neat, well organized city with a beautiful landscape.

Leaving the capital, we traveled to the very last stop in Iceland – Blue Lagoon. The place is famous for its mineral-rich hot springs. Jumping into the 37oC water, the only thing you would want to do is to lie there and let the water bubble your skin. Silica (a kind of mineral) is well-supplied for you to put on your face as a mask. Though I don’t feel a significant difference in terms of the smoothness of my skin, the experience was interesting. Compliments to the management of the lagoon as the design of the facilities were very user-friendly, e.g. supply for plastic bags for wet items, hair dryer. (Sorry, photography is prohibited in Blue Lagoon for obvious reasons.)

Now I’m staying at Northern Light Inn, a family-operated business, tired out. After a good night sleep, we’ll be leaving Iceland tomorrow early in the morning heading back to London.

I got interested in Iceland when a saw a documentary about the use of Hydrogen as alternate fuel in the country. I always considered Iceland to be a cold place with no innovation and technology. But i was terribly wrong and Iceland is on the cutting edge of alternate fuels. Bravo Iceland.
