Our final destination is the Blue lagoon. The spa is located in a lava field in Grindavik on the Reykjanes Peninsula, southwestern Iceland. The warm waters are rich in minerals like silica and sulfur and bathing in the Blue Lagoon help those with skin problems. The lagoon is man-made and the water is fed from the nearby geothermal power station.
The entrance fess comes with different package, standard, premium and luxury. During October our charges was 50 euro for standard package which comes with only a towel and locker for storage of our clothing. The warm water was about 38 degree warm so once we had changed into our swim suit, we jump straight into the pool to keep warm. Amazed to see there are lot of visitors enjoying their therapy of hot spa.
The staff put some mineral substance onto a container box where visitors can use it as mask for their faces. We enjoyed ourselves with the mask and soaking in the warm water. During dusk when the sunset appeared behind the mountains created an amazing landscape backdrop for the blue lagoon. Visitors can either soak in the water drinking a glass of wine or having a massage with experience staff provided by the Blue Lagoon.
Would recommend for all my friends to go for it, as it is out of this world experience, as the weather is so cold but once in the warm water, all the coldness disappeared from our bodies. Floating on the warm blue water and looking up at the blue sky, it seen floating in endless blue water.
After soaking for 2 hours we went into town to get our dinner as we were going to enjoy ourselves on our last day by eating out for once. Finished our dinner, we took a walk in the town and some of the shops open late in the night so bought some gifts for our families.
Our flight back to England was 10.00 a.m. and we had appointment to meet our car sale representative at 9.00 a.m. at the airport. Next morning when we reached the airport at 8.30 a.m. and hope to see our sale representative to settle our bill for the damage and problem of the car. Unfortunately, we waited till 9.30 a.m. the sale representative didn’t bother to turn up and been told to leave the keys in the car and they will pick it up later.
It made us so angry and sad that the sale representative was so irresponsible as we wanted to solve and settle our problems with them. We don’t want any problem of dealing with them later. Alas! we had no choice but to take our flight back home.
