[reading: Sheri S. Tepper, "A Plague of Angels"]
The instructions to allow extra time at the airport turned out to be nonsense; we were met at the door by a member of staff who told us we wouldn't be allowed to check in until 2 hours before the flight. I'm not sure I understand the reason for reducing the allowed size for cabin baggage eitherI have to suspect it's a conspiracy of luggage manufacturers to force everyone to buy new bags.
Anyway, the first stop off the plane was the Blue Lagoon, which can been seen from a fair distance, gently steaming in the volcanic landscape. (I can also tell I've played too much Oblivion recentlyI keep looking at small ponds and tarns and thinking they'd be good places to find nirnroot)
After our soak, it was onward to Reykjavík.
