    Ok, I find myself with the wife on a suprise trip to Iceland. Other than Puffin and whale, what and where to eat. Staying in the middle of Reykjavik. Going to head out wandering in a few minutes and see what I can find.

    I was there 25 years ago. Make sure you try Skeer, there version of yogurt, Also go up to the mountains and see the hot geysers which blow off every 15 or 20 minutes . also the seat of parliament cut into rocks. The outdoor swimming pools when its 30 degrees outside , Everything is thermal heated from the hot water generated from under ground. Its quite a country. Catch the BEAR at the airport  biggest I have ever seen.  Enjoy your trip

    PS  Not one tree in the country, nothing seems to grow
