We totally slept in today!! Actually…I totally slept in today, which means that Darren also got to sleep in! Funny how that works! Quick breakfast trying to use up extra food and then off to the mall…I know that I am not cool enough to really buy anything here, but it seemed like checking out... Continue Reading →

This morning I managed to sleep in until 8:45! That’s like a record for me. I tried to let Darren sleep, rather unsuccessfully, as I got excited about the things I wanted to do today!! I decided that we should each get a “Reykjavik Welcome Card” that would give us admission to all of the... Continue Reading →

It was rainy and gross when we woke up this morning…not much of a change lately and I miss the blue sky and sunshine! When it began to rain in the middle of the night I brought in our shoes that were out under the fly, so they wouldn’t get wet…and in with the shoes... Continue Reading →

It was hard to believe, when I woke up this morning, that it was still August out! It definitely feels like late fall here, and by the work the farmers seem to be doing in the fields, I am sure that winter is on its way! I plan on having some heat in Edmonton next... Continue Reading →

It has been a dreary day since we woke up this morning. Thankfully it wasn’t windy or rainy for breakfast this morning. It was nice to cook and eat outside enjoying the river view from our campsite. We headed off South to a town called Stadur, where our non-English-Speaking-campsite monitor indicated we could stop at... Continue Reading →

We had a relaxing morning because we didn’t really have a plan of where to head off to today. We “slept in” (ie I made it to 8:15 before I woke up!) and then walked up to a bakery we’d seen yesterday. We tried these caramel cinnamon bun things along with hot chocolate for breakfast...

We woke up this morning to rain on the tent, which never makes me happy!! Thankfully, it didn’t last long and almost as we were done packing up the tent, it had finished! Yeah!! We made breakfast in the cooking tent at the campsite, which was a welcome bonus. We headed off to see some... Continue Reading →

We had a nice, quiet, sunny breakfast on the hill where we camped that overlooked the bay this morning. Contrary to the middle of the night where I was sure our tent was going to blow away, it was actually a calm morning! (In the middle of the night, I actually had to get out... Continue Reading →

I unzipped the tent this morning to a beautifully sunny glacier! It was so fun to just lie there and look at the mountain as I was still curled up in my sleeping bag! Made me happy. This was after a very, very windy night – Darren took his shoe lace to tie two parts... Continue Reading →

This morning was beautifully sunny when we woke up! It was totally awesome to see completely blue sky! And, fortunately, the blue and sun stayed with us all day! It made me happy, that’s for sure. After a quick breakfast of oatmeal and/or granola, we headed off towards Vik…en route we stopped at many waterfalls,... Continue Reading →
