Iceland part II
As I mentioned in my last Iceland post, we were in Reykjavik the first day and for a few hours the last day. I was so tired the first day that I had to go to bed early so I didn't get to see much. I was able to snap some photos the last day though.
I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the vegetarian options in the restaurants we went to! The first day I had vegan toast, not something you would find in my hometown exactly. Then in the evening I can't even remember what I ate because I was so tired. The second day I had a "bygotto" (risotto but with barley instead of rice). Even in the lobster restaurant they had a vegetarian option. I was pretty impressed. It's not often that I eat this good food whilst traveling. And in Sweden I'm used to having goat cheese and mushrooms in most dishes (ok, that might be an exaggeration but I hate goat cheese with a passion).
I also mentioned that we saw Northern lights. Twice. The photo below was taken the second time. The first time, we were outside for two minutes and I was thinking that we were probably NEVER going to see one. But suddenly, to my surprise, we saw the unmistakable green formation up in the sky (we literally had been outside two minutes). So lucky. I had of course forgotten my battery in our room so I ran in to get it. I was struggling with my tripod so those images came out a bit shaky. But it was so cool to see it for real. I was better prepared the second time but my tripod still didn't want to cooperate.
