Well, this post will be the last one of my trip! Iceland has been amazing. I wouldn’t trade these experiences and memories for anything. I am glad I decided to travel alone. I think it is something everyone should do at least once. It allows you to certainly get out of your comfort zone and there is nothing quite like going to a foreign place where NO ONE knows you! 🙂
The other night I decided to take a walk by the ocean. The wind was blowing and the sun was shining brightly over the water and mountains. I was wishing I had brought my postcards so I could have written them at the ocean!
Yesterday I went on a day trip to the Blue Lagoon! This is one place I am certain every tourist goes to on their trip to Iceland. With its milky blue water and warm temperature, the lagoon was a perfect place to unwind and float in. Along the sides of lagoon were boxes filled with silica mud where visitors could treat their faces to a lagoon specialty! I put on about 3 masks while I was there…it smelled so good. I also met my first Canadian traveller while in the sauna. It was nice to meet someone that was as equally friendly as myself. One thing I have found here is that people are COLD. I always smile at people on the streets or store owners, but rarely is it reciprocated. The Blue Lagoon was a great place to spend an afternoon however, my hair now feels like straw because of the salt water! Hopefully it will be restored back to its normal self!
As you read in my previous post, I was seriously debating buying an Icelandic wool sweater. Well, I found one that I LOVE. I am hoping it was worth the money, but it fits very well and the wool isn’t scratchy like most of the other wool sweaters.
Tomorrow evening I fly back home to Canada! Hopefully I will actually make a plane friend this time around! This was a trip to remember for sure. Despite some loneliness I am so glad that I embarked on this adventure. The next places I am travelling to ALONE are Austria, German and the Czech Republic in August! Thanks for reading and I hope you learned a little something about Iceland 😀
