Last day in Iceland and it was Blue Lagoon day!
The bus transport picked me up at 8:30 am. They picked you up at your hotel by a little bus and take you to the bus station to get on a bigger bus. While I was waiting for everyone to load up, there was Sue and Steven who were with me in the West Fjords and on the Golden Circle tour.
The Blue Lagoon is a geothermal pool that was formed by the nearby power plant. The water is very blue and silica mud comes from the water. The silica mud rejuvenates your skin. Everyone can put the mud on there face to gain the effects. It was funny to see people walking around the pool with mud masks on, but why not. A 4 oz bottle of the stuff sells for around $80.
We upgraded our package and got a reservation at the Lava restaurant (along with a towel, robe, flip flops and a free drink). The food was amazing! I had heard that the chef won a master chef competition. The weather changed a lot while I was at the Lagoon. Had sun, rain, hail and wind, but it was warm in the pool. What a great way to spend my last day in Iceland!
When I got back in town, I saw the other couple I was in the West Fjords with. They went on the Golden Circle tour today and had the same guide I did earlier in the week.
Dinner was at a Place called the Public House. Great food! Music was from the 80's which was fun. Afterward I walked around a bit to see more of Reykjavik. While on my walk, I went past the Hard Rock and it looked open so I walked in. I wasn't sure if they were open or not, but no one stopped me when I walked in so I started looking a shirts. When I went to check out, I was told they were not open and there was a private party going on. Oh well, made me chuckle that they let me walk around, look at shirts, but didn't let me buy anything.
Overall it was a great experience! Iceland is a beautiful country with very friendly people. It was easy to get around and the food was fantastic!
