The phrase of the day

So I accidentally slept in and missed the service I was going to. It kinda demotivated me for the day. I managed to leave, but when I came back some dude had stolen my bed so not really sure where I’ll be sleeping today?? Definitely in my room just not sure where in the room yet.

Today I went to the sea because I was feeling pretty bad. Water tends to make me feel better. The shoreline here, even near Reykjavik, was really nice. Along the coast near Harpa, which is the big music theater, there were a bunch of stacked up towers of rocks. This seems to be a thing in Iceland because I also saw these when I was near the glacial lagoon.

Sun Voyager

After the sea and seeing the Sun Voyager, I had the most expensive meal I have ever had. Even compared to my buffet meal in Las Vegas which was pretty expensive. A buffet in Vegas costs about $50-60 bucks not counting tips. This meal was about $100 for a four course meal plus wines. The wine pairings were actually pretty good, especially the dessert wine. I especially liked getting to try Brennivin which is an Icelandic favorite. The meal was really good. I’m not sure if it was worth the $100 but I think that it’s needed to have at least one nice meal while in Iceland. The shark was pretty good and although it tasted mostly like chicken.

Course 3

Course 4

I think I’ll be hunting down that dried cod from the dish at the very least. While very tough to chew through, it actually tasted really good. Tomorrow is my last day in Reykjavik, so I hope to make the most of it. Helsinki is next, and I’m pretty excited. Maybe tomorrow I’ll eat another Icelandic hotdog. The dessert was really good. Skyr is a lot better than I thought it would be. Also NA LCS today is super hyped. Hopefully when I walk back to my room a bed will be open.
