Geyser's are so unique and really fun to see for the first time. It was soooo funny to be one of 60+ people all holding a camera and waiting....staring at this pool of water just waiting for it to BLOW!

I know we have Niagara Falls in all it's glory but this falls was totally amazing. The Godafoss is worth taking a closer look at on the net. Here is what I saw.

Today was a complete tour day. It was perfect as it took in most of the elements that represent Iceland.

We first visited a Greenhouse. This was so amazing since everything was so perfect for those tomato vines. The owners control the air, humidity, oxygen levels. They use the very best water and import bees in from Belgium to pollinate the blossoms. They serve homemade tomato soup to the tour....OMG it was sooo good!

overcast 10 °C

Tired and sore, we were tempted to treat ourselves to a luxurious spa day. It is early in this BIG DOOZIE so instead of spending 150.00 on one thing, which would but us over our 200.00 dollar a day budget, we decided to spend 6.00 and go to a local spa. Plus this is keeping with trying to go local whenever possible so we can lean and appreciate the culture. We're glad we did...it was so much fun!

Hi there --- not much to report in on today. We actually slept in until noon!!! Yep.....We had a late night coming in from Iceland. The backpacks are sooo heavy.
The weather here is much warmer than Iceland and we are more than happy to bury our warmer cloths for more spring like stuff. This_phone.._Wi-Fi_Here.jpgPiccadilly_Circus.jpgMore_Piccidilly.jpg

Off to downtown London to find a perfect Pub!
