Day Eight – Heading Home!

Well, folks, it was an incredible eight days in Iceland. I couldn’t believe how much we did in such a short time and how quickly we acclimated to the culture there, and especially with the midnight sun! We woke up at 7am, showered and then went out the door for the last time at 7:30. Drove to Keflavik, which took about 45 minutes. And it was there that I said goodbye to our faithful companion, the Suzuki Swift, number plate DS N71. She’s a good car!

Got to the airport, checked in and made it through security. They led us through not one, but two duty free shops (I guess they really wanted us to buy something!). We had breakfast at the airport (my treat) and then it was time to head to the gate! Apparently our plane is named after the volcano that grounded flights all across Europe in 2010. Bad omen?

Ah well. In for a Krona, in for a hundred Kronur! And with that, we say goodbye to the beautiful country of Ísland!

It’s been a wonderful trip. We are now in our respective homes, and I expect to make one last blog – a post-mortem of our vacation summarizing what we did, what we saw and hopefully I’ll have some good tips that’ll aid you should you ever go to Iceland! But for now, I need to rest!
