After plenty of rest at the hostel last night, we woke up to a delicious breakfast. Everyone seemed to enjoy the fresh bread and coffee. Jade enjoyed the meat so much, she wrapped up a fistful to take on the journey. We picked up our lunch bags and boarded the bus that was to take us to the Blue Lagoon. The bus driver was very punctual, and at ten o'clock we departed. We drove through an alien landscape of volcanic rock and treeless terrain for about 20 minutes before turning to make our way to the lagoon. The steam from the geothermal springs was visible from a distance.
Upon our arrival, we noticed streams of baby-blue water, and soon arrived at the parking lot. Walking through a tunnel of rock, we made our way to the modern structure that was home to changing rooms, restaurants, shops, a spa, a sauna, a fine dining area and a host of other features.
Swimming in the blue lagoon can be described as swimming in a giant natural bathtub filled with hot ocean water. The silica mud worked wonders in our skin, and everyone treated themselves to one of blue lagoons famous face masks. The mountains provide the perfect backdrop against the blue water of the lagoon. Read about how the water is heated in the attraction description.
After three hours of fun, the bus driver took us back to the hostel, where Klara was waiting to give us an hour-long presentation about Iceland and its people. Everyone had lots of questions and we really enjoyed all of the information Klara shared.
To crown the day, we had dinner together at the restaurant by the pool. We were hungry from all the swimming, and enjoyed the selection of bread, salad, chicken, rice and vegetables.
Tomorrow morning, the hostel staff is preparing our breakfast at 3:50 AM and we will depart for the airport at 4:20 AM. Next time, we will write aus Deutschland!!!
Thank you, Jade and Mollie, for your help with this entry.
