Iceland is magical

Today was my last driving day, copilot tomorrow for our last day with the car.

Big day driving today, just about waved off by the nice lady at Stykkisholmur we headed down the west of Iceland.

First stop Deildartunguhver, the largest hot spring in Europe before heading to more waterfalls



Zigzagging up the cost we could see Reykjavik but headed inland to Thingvellir National Park, where you can clearly see the continental drift. There was several waterfalls, streams with trout and towering rock faces.

Tonight were on the farm, I mean really on a working farm I can hear the tractor drive past as I write this. We are in a little set of rooms with the mountain & glacier in the background, views in all directions, great ice cream & looking forward to breakfast which will be overlooking the cows.

Monks, Elephants & Waterfalls

Whose alarm goes off at 5.15am when there on holidays.....mine! A nice early start because we got to participate in the Alms giving ceremony. We knelt on mats & put sticky rice in the bowls of novice monks well worth getting out of bed for.

So what else do you do when your up early....go for a ride of course. I swore ild never do it again but somehow I found myself on the back of an elephant & enjoyed the experience far more the second time. Was nice just walking by the jungle & river.

How else do you spend your afternoon other than a trip to paradise. We bumped along a road that seemed to have more holes than not & traffic yeah let's not go there lets just say it's interesting. We walked a little & there it was
Kuang Si waterfall isn't it beautiful! So blue compared to the brown of the Mekong. Had a little dip was so nice & cool.
