The day before the tour starts

day_before

started the day at 3am, heading to Luton departures catching the 3:50 bus from the holiday inn express. Flight left on time and we arrived in Iceland at 7:55 local time. Getting the flybus from Keflavik to the BSI bus station then in a taxi t the Eimskip office where the fun began. Our last tour at the end of 2018 had problems with customs getting the vehicles and ended up waiting 5 hours, this year only took 4 hours and 45 minutes.

After a couple of hours Val and Dawn headed into Reykjavik to see the sights. Taxi ti Harpa, looking at the spectacular building, then on to the main street and tourist information for a couple of bits.

We then started heading towards the hotel, but saw the Perlam and decided to go for a visit, wonderful does not do this justice, there is a Planetarium which shows the northern lights but also across the universe, there is a museum that is far far more than a museum, this is definitely placed within the 21st century with tasteful technology to enhance the experience. There is an amazing icecave experience and exhibit a must when in iceland. Also there are the panaramic views across Reykjavik. All in all a good day shame about the truck taking so long to clear.
