Day one in Iceland – headed straight away to The Blue Lagoon which I a place I always wanted to visit and I’d booked a night to stay in ‘The Clinic’ at The Blue Lagoon for some much needed R n R. Turns out, this was a brilliant plan as the flight was quite early and I got no sleep whatsoever the night before. I must have spent all of 5 minutes in The Clinic before jumping right into The Blue Lagoon. I say ‘jump’ – more like ‘waded in’, it’s actually quite shallow…
Anyway, I can’t think of a better way to have started my trip to Iceland. I knew the other days were going to be packed with different activities so it was nice to ease into it all and I’m forgetting to mention to best part – The Blue Lagoon itself. It’s fairly cold in Iceland (as you can imagine) and The Blue Lagoon is soooooooooo warm (it’s basically heated by an underground lava field) and it’s got natural deposits of silica – which is apparently great for your skin and is in a lot of skincare products. I had such a great time there and I’m surprised I didn’t end up looking as wrinkled as a raisin after spending so much time in The Blue Lagoon.
PS – tried looking out for the Northern Lights here but alas, I got nothing!
