|It's called "the Sun Voyager"|
It actually wasn't that long of a day. A five-hour flight from LAS to JFK, followed by another five-hour-ish flight from JFK to Reykjavik Keflavik. I got no sleep on the airplane because, well, I was on an airplane. So I coffeed up before getting the rental car and immediately drove a little south of the airport to my #1 destination in all of Iceland:
Over-simplified, yes, but as you can see from the dumb-founded look on my face above, that's all the complexity I can handle. With only 20 minutes of sleep that night, I can handle the fact that there's a bridge. But where are the two continents at?
The was only a lunar landscape and this weird pedestal.
It appeared to be marked to track the planet Uranus.
The sleeplessness was starting to take its toll so I decided to head into Reykjavik to find my hotel.
Which I did. The Hotel Skuggi, which translates from Icelandic to English as "the Skuggi Hotel."
My room is "European" sized, very clean and comfortable, but strangely lacking a chest of drawers.
Speaking of bears:
One of the souvenir shops had these giant plush polar bears in front. This most definitely is where I will go to buy my picture postcards.
And, of course, on the walk about town, I saw the Sun Voyager. Is it a ship? Is it a whale carcass? Or is it just a little of both?
