Iceland – starter

Arrived  in Reykjavik 2 days ago after a 3 hour flight from London. The following day went to the Blue Lagoon, located near the Airport. A multi hectare pool up to 1.2 mtres deep and at a constant 37 degrees from the natural thermal vent power station next door, not a gram of CO2. crowdatbluelagoon
