Catch up with the story so far by reading about Day 01, Day 02, Day 03 & Day 04 here.
I try to appreciate every moment. I try to remember every detail. And try as I might, these sweet adventures still come to an end and I always feel like I could have been there more. Could have noticed more. That's how I felt on our last morning in Iceland. We woke up in the Skógafoss parking lot and knew right away it was the last morning.
We drove the last few hours back to the airport (making sure to stop again at Seljalandsfoss for one more beauty shot, at my request).
We stopped for lunch in Hveragerði, a town that is almost entirely run on geothermal power, where we boiled eggs in a hot spring in the town park.
Finally, we bypassed Reykjavík and spent some much needed hours at the Blue Lagoon (Iceland's most famous attraction) soaking in milky blue geothermal pool in the middle of a devastated lava field.
When our time ran out, we had to make the short but heart-breaking drive back to the airport to part with our beloved 4x4 and catch our flight.
