Iceland Diary- Part 2 – Waking Up In Arkanes…

After we arrived under the cover of darkness and hurried into the warmth of our cabin, we finished our proseccos and dutifully passed out – it had been a long day, with our journey taking in total about 15 hours after delays and waiting around. As an early bird, I woke up to hear the storm had eased, and to our utmost surprise, the sun was (albeit weakly) shining. Creeping out of bed, I looked out our front door…

Which was nothing compared to when I opened it…

We decided to don our thermals, and wonder down to the sea front which was about 600 yards from our cottage…

We finally somehow got the hot tub working, cracked open another prosecco – this was of course, J’s big 3-0 and who were we to argue with the birthday girl?

After the water cooled, it was time to head in, throw on a pizza and while the night away – tomorrow would see us snorkelling and a long drive to Pvengillar National Park… But that is a tale for another post 😉

Have you been to Iceland?

    Oh my word, those VIEWS! Your little cabin looks like it is in the most incredible setting, I don’t think I’d ever want to leave! Stunning scenery, a bottle of fizz (or two) and a hot tub sounds like a recipe for the perfect weekend away if you ask me! Iceland has been on my bucket list for so long now and your posts have made my wanderlust soooo much more intense! Looking forward to the National Park post already!
