Chillbrook Has Landed..

In Iceland!  Quite an adventure awaits exploring this amazing island of fire and ice and I can’t wait to get going.  Picking up a hire car at Keflavik airport this afternoon, I couldn’t resist taking just a couple of detours on my way to checking into my apartment, organising some groceries and unwinding after a very tiring day (and night).

I didn’t sleep at all last night.  I had a really good sleep Saturday afternoon and set off for Bristol airport at silly O’clock to make my flight at 7.30 this morning.  A three-hour drive, two-hour check-in, security, getting hooked up with the assisted passenger people, having myself and my wheelchair scanned labelled and loaded aboard the aircraft, it all took time..

A wonderful flight ensued, with clear skies over the west of Scotland it was easy to make out the islands of Arran and Mull.  For now, I will leave you with just a couple of shots taken on the drive from the airport in Keflavik to the capital, Reykjavik, where I will be based for the next ten days.  Well done to Lynn for guessing my destination.. :-)

With the light changing in this second shot by the second, I became seriously excited about the coming days.  I just hope I can do this Island justice..
