So, our final day in Iceland – time for a quick post or part two of the last post as the title suggests…I know you all speak Icelandic by now!
As you will all know, the volcanic ash cloud brought the mighty European airspace to a close, however this didn’t affect our travel plans, although we have had to put some of our travel on hold for various other reasons.
Anyway, back to the past. We headed off up to the Perlan and snapped some pictures of the magnificent vista at the top.
On the way up
As you can see, that church is more or less the biggest building in Reykjavik.
Outside the Perlan
A sculpture called ‘Dance’
Once inside, we had a poke around and picked up a few postcards. We saw a few items from the museum on display outside in an effort to entice us into the museum.

We also had a little lunch and I left Sha to fill in postcards to her nieces while I took a few more photos. I did mention magnificent vistas didn’t I?
We noticed that while a lot of the buildings were plainly painted, the rooves of many were quite colourful.
A very friendly cat
As we headed back down, we met a very friendly cat who wanted a scratch.
And that was it…oh, except from this lovely photo of Sha from the day before. Very cheeky! We are building up quite a collection of pictures of fire hydrants from around the world!
Next up – our trip to Scotland where we stay in Dunoon for five nights, followed by Glasgow for a few. More on that leg of our journey to come.
