We flew into Iceland late on Sunday evening and Monday morning I was the first up … as we had no food in the apartment yet my breakfast was some Icelandic chocolate and tea!

We took a lovely little walk around Reykjavik that first morning … there was a really bad storm heading to Iceland that evening and we were advised to stay inside from the afternoon onwards …

Tuesday we headed out to the National Park to go visit the Geysir and Gulfoss waterfall … it was interesting to see how different the road looked compared to last year … last year is above and the current year is below …

I miss my fluffy boys like crazy … this is the longest I’ve been away from them … three weeks its been today! … but thankfully we have a great pet sitter who takes great care of them and sends me regular updates … she sent this photo this morning …

We have a few more things to do on our list over the next few days before we fly back … but for now I think I will leave it here …

Till next time …
