    Learning Islandic & dining

    June 6, 2017 in Iceland

    The most important sentence is "allt i lagi", translates to ok, awesome or are you okay if you add a "?". More over we tried lopster soup and some nice fish sticks from the grill complimentary to my nice colleagues from oose! For the German followers: berliner Ehepaar bei uns am Tisch: "hmm, lobstersoup, ich dachte die hätten hier Hummersuppe, aber dann probieren wir eben die aus"

    May I introduce: this is Bodo!

    June 7, 2017 in Iceland

    Bodo will take us to nice places in Island during the next days. Today he showed us the peninsula Reykjanes with hot springs, the place, where the tectonic plates between Eurasia and Nord-America split and fantastic views in a nature that looks like travelling the moon

  • Day15

    Walk around Reykjavik

    June 4, 2017 in Iceland

    What an interesting place. Harbour, city, a lot of German, American and Asien tourists (I even managed a very asian picture pose 😉) and a tattoo convention - all in one day.
    And key learning: hot water from the tap is only for showering - it really smells like rotten eggs! The cold water is fine

  • Day24

    Drive through park

    June 13, 2017 in Iceland

    Today we drove through heidmørk, a park, which prepared us well for the US, you can drive through it 😉and I found my true passion: went swimming over 1 km, never did that before and really enjoyed it - who would have thought that?

  • Day16

    Cycling across town

    June 5, 2017 in Iceland

    Took a bicycle ride around town. Saw a lighthouse, the old airport, a beach (apparently 12 degrees is bathing weather for locals) and super nice streetart. Got shot at with a golfball as well, but survived - living on the edge 😉 oh, and stumbled in on a first division soccer game in the neighborhood

    Day 8, Reykjavic

    September 7, 2017 in Iceland

    Evening all, so a nice long dock in Reykjavik today, docking at 7am this morning and not leaving until 10pm this evening. Due to all the excitement last night with the Northern Lights and the fact that we were very late to bed, we missed this mornings dock and breakfast in the restaurant as our peepers didn't open until 9am. We wandered upstairs to the buffet breakfast and indulged. We didn't hang about as we wanted to get in to the town for a look around and get a tour to the golden circle. We went in to the town and to the tourist information and booked ourselves a trip to depart at 12.30. We were in a private minibus and there were 12 of us, a nice bunch. The driver was excellent and first stop was to the country park to see where the tectonic plates have divided the US and Europe. We then moved on to the Geysers, natural hot sulphur springs which shoot 100 degree boiling water up to 30 meters into the sky all naturally. They were amazing to see and truly fascinating. We had an hour there before being driven to the next stop the Gullfoss Falls. These were magnificent Waterfalls and get their name because when in the sun a rainbow appears and the word Gullfos means Golden. We were lucky enough to see the rainbow, in fact we saw 2. Moving on we visited Icelands second largest glacier, followed by a smaller waterfall on the Clearwater river which had a salmon ladder before being driven back to the ship via one of Icelands active volcanos. It was a phenomenal trip and a very long day. We were back on board, quick dinner in the buffet and we are now out on deck watching us set sail for St Johns, Newfoundland, Canada. We're all togged up looking to see if we can catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights again, the decks are very full tonight but nothing as yet. Communications will be limited until we hit New York a week on Sunday but I will endeavour to update the blog daily if the internet behaves.

    ** Scrap the last comment, the Northern Lights have come out to play. Captains turned all the lights out on the decks and it's packed and a cracking display.

    1. Liga Island (Pepsideild)

    June 6, 2017 in Iceland

    KR Reykjavik gegen UMF Grindavik 0:1
    Das Stadion liegt fünf Minuten zu Fuß von unserer Wohnung und fasst in etwa so viele Zuschauer wie der DGF Platz. Niveau passt in etwa auch;-)
