The Milky White Geothermal Occurrence

This place is awesome! I love the "Blue Lagoon" area of Iceland. Before I went, I could only think of that old movie with Brooke Shields. I never saw it, but I remember being in school and some dumb kid told me it was soooo cooool because it was full of boobies. I never knew what that meant, for sure, but shades of it hung out in the back of my mind when I visited this one.


Can you imagine dipping your toes into that and getting inside for a nice warm soak? It's wild! It's hard to describe how wild it really is.


There is a whole complex behind there with lockers, showers, a restaurant, and this sort of thing. The design inside is all Scandinavian and modern. They have private rooms you can rent that are swim-up. I met a nice couple from Colorado and they invited me into theirs. It was filled with food and all kind of things -- it reminded me of a James Bond evil lair. Next time I go, I'm gonna get one of my own! I checked on the prices, and they were relatively cheap, even back before the economy collapsed there.
