The next day we transferred back to Reykjavik and back to the original hotel next to the airport. That afternoon we visited the Saga Museum, one of the six water tanks (empty) which was in the “Pearl” which was the hot water storage unit. It told of the history of Iceland, the coming of Christianity to Iceland and the introduction of democracy through their Parliament which was formed in 930 AD. At the “Pearl”, we met a lovely couple from Denmark and had dinner with them that night at a very good restaurant called “Rub23” to which we were drawn by the delicious smells emanating from the restaurant’s kitchen.
On our last day we bought a tour that would take us to the Blue Lagoon on the way to the airport. While we enjoyed the Blue Lagoon, the hot springs near Akureyri were better.
Our plane trip home was uneventful and we arrived him very happy campers.
