Why are we here?

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.


  1. I've always wanted to go too. It looks wonderful.

  2. Green, so, so green with envy
    Enjoy bb
    Have fun

  3. I was about to say Iceland too - and def. a place for a summer vacation. Great island.
