Blue Lagoon (First video blog)!
Today we did so many things! We spent a lot of time just chilling at the Blue Lagoon. It was lovely and relaxing and helped clear my stuffy nose, even if only for a little bit.
Then we drove a long long way to see the Hraunfossar and Barnafoss waterfalls, lots of geothermal activity, and a huge crater (Grabrock). We finally ended our day at Hotel Hvammstangi where we made a very um... simple dinner in the room, because all two restaurants closed at 9pm and we got in too late. The little hotel was humble and sweet. Aware that it was our anniversary they left us a glass of wine a piece and a box of chocolates. It was a small town and a nice quiet stopover.
Silica mud mask at the Lagoon...
I'm pretty sure I kept the mask on for all of 5 seconds. The wind and the wet mud made my face feel so cold. No me gusta!
I was pretty stoked about putting on the silica mask! Everyone who slathered it on seemed oh so very happy therefore it must be excellent. Hmmm, I didn't think....
Laura's Blue Lagoon FAQs
I'll have to see about how I feel about these video blogs after doing a few of them. a) I realize that I don't really like my mannerisms and b) everyone hates the sound of their voice and I'm not excluded from that. SO if you can get beyond my voice then have a look!
My biggest tip here is to explore! There lots of interesting little inlets and caves that you wouldn't find without some exploring!

Hraunfossar and Barnafoss Waterfalls
Even though the wind was whipping and the temperatures were freezing we couldn't resist taking some time to hike around these falls. It was slightly snowing and nobody was around. It felt like we had this water-filled dreamland to ourselves.
