No, not some philosophical introspective, just a response to the many recent "where am I" posts from several fellow bloggers.
Admittedly not a place that immediately comes to mind for a summer holiday destination, but if like us you enjoy the great outdoors then definitely worth a visit. At 66 degrees north and a week after the summer solstice the days are long, really long, about 2 hours of twilight was as dark as it got.
If you still haven't worked it out here's a really strong clue and yes the water really is that colour and around 32 degrees C (98 -102 F), so you can bathe whatever the weather. It's a geothermal spa formed in old lava pools, unlike a swimming pool the bottom is a bit lumpy, like the admission fee, still Mrs BB really wanted to go and she was right it's an amazing place.
