{November 9, 2016}   Day 3…Iceland… The Blue Lagoon!

What do you do in Iceland? Lots of stuff, but today… The Blue Lagoon!

Our reservation for The Blue Lagoon was for 1pm, we got up leisurely and moved from the air bnb to hotel, I’ll tell you about the hotel later, yum!

We went to breakfast at a fun place called The Laundromat, good breakfast, fun atmosphere and decoration. And the sun peaked through! Even a rainbow on the walk back, stunning. What an amazing and beautiful city. 

We got our stuff together and waited for the bus. The bus that took us to the bus station for another bus, go figure. We drove about 45 minutes to our destination.

The Blue Lagoon (Icelandic: Bláa lónið) geothermal spa is one of the most visited attractions in Iceland. The spa is located in a lava field in Grindavík on the Reykjanes Peninsula, southwestern Iceland.
We got checked in,  received our towels and wristbands.  The wristbands were cool, all charges would go to it, instead of having to carry money or a wallet and when you hold it over the sensor it locks and unlocks a locker in the dressing room. 

We met outside changing rooms, hung up or towels and stepped into the warm water. After a bit we waded over to the bar and applied silica masks and later algae masks, smoothing the skin and supposedly make your skin look 10 years younger.

We spent a few hours enjoying the lagoon, the sauna and waterfall. Then took showers and went to dinner in a wide open room with windows looking out onto the lagoon. We dined on reindeer, celery root and poached pears.

Then it was time to head back to town, drinks and pots of tea until it was time to head to our room and plan our  next adventure! 

Keep you posted!
