Icelandic Drama: part 1

I’ve just turned 50 – woohoo! To celebrate arriving at such a grand old age, my family and I went to Iceland (the country, not the frozen food emporium – that would make for a very different post). Given that I’ve spent the past few years reading every Icelandic crime novel I can get my mitts on, and gazing daily, at Icelandic webcams, I was more than a little excited.

We spent a week there, the first few days Air B&Bing in Reykjavik, and then we hoped to head north for a few days depending on the weather. Luckily, we did manage to do that, although driving in the snowy north was pretty scary, and probably added a bit more ‘snow’ to the colour of my hair.

Anyway, here are some of my pics from our stay in the south.

The fabulous Harpa Opera house

I’ll post about our trip to Akureyri, and our travels in the north next time……
