London, England

London, England, Big Ben

Thinking of London and the terror attacks over the weekend. My wife and I have visited several times, the first being on our honeymoon. For the occasion, I wanted to go someplace I’ve never been with no language barrier and London was the destination. Little did I realize, I would love the place. Imagine…buildings older than my country. I’m not only referring to government and historical buildings like the Tower of London or Parliament. When visiting Arundel, a small town south of London, I had lunch in an inn that was 400 years old. Wow.

The Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon is a very popular tourist attraction in Iceland. From their website – “The Blue Lagoon was formed in 1976 during operation at the nearby geothermal power plant. In the years that followed, people began to bathe in the unique water and apply the silica mud to their skin.”
At the time we arrived (my wife, daughter and myself) it was 55 degrees outside. Freezing. I was literally shaking. I jumped into the “indoor section” of the lagoon just to warm up. When Deb and Ashley appeared, I followed them to the exterior lagoon, shivering along the way. We all very quickly got in. It was wonderfully warm.
We floated around for a period, soaking in the warmth as the mist surrounded us. Some areas of the lagoon were warmer than others. That’s where we stood.
Eventually we made our way to the “facial mask” area and applied the stuff. Obviously, I put too much on. We soaked in the geothermal water for an hour. We exited the pool, first standing in a waterfall to wash us.  We dressed, exited the building, hopped in the car and headed to our destination – the Hotel Ork in Hveragedi.

Years ago, my son is underwater in the not-so-deep end of the pool.
We were on vacation in Wildwood, NJ. So much fun.
