Needless to say we were pretty happy that  the  airport transfer bus turned around and came back to get us and a lovely gentlemen came running to help us with our luggage. Continue reading

Hannah: First Day in Reykjavik

So one of my goals is to possibly spell Reykjavik right on the first try. It looks right in that sentence, but I’m not sure. I’ve spelled it Reykavik, Rejavik, Reyjavik, but Google always knows what I mean, so we’re all good.
