XICE171119: Explore Iceland - November 19, 2017

Hi!

I am going on this trip and I wanted to see who i'd be traveling with! I'm going solo so I thought it would be a good idea to discuss it a bit.

My Mom and I are also coming on this trip. We are coming from Southern California although we are originally from India. We did most of our packing today. This is our first time to Iceland.

Awesome! Sorry I took so long to reply.

I'm James by the way. Living in Atlanta, Georgia right now. My first time to Iceland as well.

Is anyone staying longer than the tour? I'm doing one extra night at the end. I'm debating whether I want to book the blue lagoon for the day I arrive or when the tour is over.. or at all. I've heard it's a bit overrated but still seems like something you should do once. My flight gets in at 4:30am so i'll have some time to kill.

Is there anything you guys are concerned about? I'm going to attempt to only pack a carry-on so I'm a little concerned about having enough layers. Also debating whether I want to bring a second pair of shoes or just my hiking boots.

I'm Derek. Living in Florida.
I am staying one extra night as well. I'm trying to find a good excursion for that extra Saturday, but haven't booked anything yet (tho time is running out). I think I'm going to do the Blue Lagoon that Sunday before I leave. I've heard its overrated as well, but might as well experience it while i'm there. Idk if I'll get another change to experience any of the other geothermal baths.
I also arrive early (6:00am) and I think I'm going to just explore the city that day. I've read there are some walking tours to do.
I have the same concerns about what to pack and if I'll be warm enough. I lived in Juneau, AK for a year and it seems to have similar weather and it was never deathly cold, but it may get pretty cold venturing out into the wilderness.

Nice, maybe we can meet up in the morning when we get there. Have you booked a place to stay for that extra night? I've been putting it off thinking I would want to end up where the group is but I'm kind of out of time now. Doing the Blue lagoon Sunday before you leave sounds like a good idea. It is closer to the airport.

I actually booked the extra night at the hotel we are staying at the first and last night (Fosshotel Reykjavik). I was just hoping I could keep the same room so I could leave my stuff and go do something on Saturday without having to worry about it.

I'm going to explore the city once the sun rises, if anyone would like to meet up and join.

I'll join you. Need to make good use of that six hour window of sunlight.

Ha! Exactly! I'll send you a PM with my #, so we can sync up that morning. I expect I'll arrive at the hotel shortly before sunrise, although since our rooms likely won't be ready, we'll probably all be hanging out in the lobby and easily find-able :)

Sounds good. Haha I was thinking the same thing. Maybe they will speed things up when everyone starts napping in the lobby.

Hi All,

I'm Alex from the UK, travelling solo and first time to Iceland as well. Looking forward to meeting you guys on the 19th!

Hi guys,

Not sure if anyone is still using this forum...

Anyone want to meet up before the 6pm meet at the hotel?
