Lizzie and I have just returned from a few days in Iceland. Wow, what a great place.

We saw the Northern Lights every night and if you get a chance to do this, GO, as it is one of the most amazing things that you will ever see. Our photos are rubbish so if you want to see the lights look up the magic inter web.

We also went whale watching but must have got on the wrong boat as our boat turned into a seagull watching trip as there weren't any whales or dolphins in sight. The seagulls were pretty boring as they just sat there. They could have mated or something but it was probably too cold.

We had a great afternoon at the thermal pools, wind chill -12, 40C in the water, just magical. The pools also had 2 x 50 metre pools so I took the chance to put in a few Ks,  my northern most swim ever. Not quite the Arctic Circle but pretty close.

Had my swim medical today. Fit as a buck rat. I was asked to donate my body to science but I would rather wait until I am dead.

Led Zep are huge in Iceland. I come from the land of ice and snow................

Setting off. 7am. Only 13 and a half hours to go!
