Today was a nua-ing day for us, having spent the previous night in the cold trying to chase the northern light without much success.
We had a late but wonderful breakfast at the hotel and after booking bus tours with Gray Line Iceland for northern lights tonight and the Golden Circle for tomorrow, it was almost 11.30am by the time we left the hotel.
The hotel was an easy 30mins (even though websites say 15mins) bus ride away from city centre (ISK 350 ~ S$3.60/pax), and we arrived at the Reykjavik city centre close to 12 noon.

We were super excited this morning as we would be spending the day in our attempt to reach Tiger’s Nest at an altitude of 3120m! The minute we stepped out of our room, we saw snow!!! First snow in the valley of Paro for the year! We wondered if this was an omen? Today, we used up 6 heat packs in total – 2 each for the 3 of us 😛

While waiting for hubby at the lobby, I had a chat with an old lady from California, where we exchanged tips on keeping warm… haha! She advised that we should “heat up our skins” by the fireplace just prior to sleeping, so that our bodies could warm the bed, and that we should heat up our clothes by the fireplace prior to wearing.
We had a light breakfast of long beans, baked beans, barley porridge, muesli and delicious made-to-order cheese omelette (skipped the toast and cornflakes).
