We decided to go souvenir shopping even though we knew we were going to get completely soaked thanks to the rain. Some of our favorites were Brennin (alcohol), Rhubarb (alcohol), Icelandic Sea Salt, Glass Coasters, Jams (my fav being Rhubarb with vanilla), and of course Lava Rocks. The biggest disappointment is the fact that you can find plenty of photographs online of the Northern Lights in Iceland however you can't buy a good photograph in Iceland. We went to at least 5 different stores and each store carried the same photographs by the same photographer. In addition to this they were over priced for a mediocre print.
We checked in for our flight, dropped off our bags, and called home for a quick chat. We made our way through security and immigrations. We boarded our flight (which is more like a cattle call due to everyone being let on at once), enjoyed a movie and a bottle of water and were home before we knew it.
We really loved seeing Iceland even though it was just for the weekend. Both Greg and I are dying to go back in the warmer months to see the vast difference in appearance. A trip to Iceland is highly recommended from us!
