Day 1131 Reykjavík to Keflavík Airport and on to Edinburgh 🇮🇸✈️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 all before 9am!

It’s just as well we don’t mind getting up early these days…. Another 5am alarm! Of course that meant we almost had the road to ourselves on our way to Keflavik airport.

That’s our hotel. We were a good 30-40 minute walk from the centre of Reykjavík but it was a straight walk in.

This next building is Happy Campers Iceland! didn’t notice it until the last minute.

We had chicken Caesar salad for brekkie, as you do. A mere £10 a head!

It was the best Chicken Caesar salad takeaway I’ve ever had but then I did say to Craig, I’ve also never had a £10 takeaway salad before 😂

As we took off we turned to the left and I got a great photo out over Keflavik airport!

Bye bye Iceland. You’ve been a real tonic.

Once again everything went really smoothly.

Ok so let’s be really clear here…. I have been able to look on the bright side of everything on this trip.

Are there any medals for this?!? If so I feel like I deserve a bloody big one.

I am remarkably calm, taking everything in my stride. No sign of stress or anxiety at all. I am extremely comfortable travelling and I guess that is because it’s all I really want to do.

I am finally at peace.

My head isn’t fighting me every step of the way.

Think anyone will pay me to do this for them?!? Go check out places before they do?!? Just to make sure they are ok?!? 🤦🏻‍♀️😆😂

I used to be scared of flying. Not this trip. I am aware of finding things to ground me. (No pun intended but it kinda works) 🥴😬😆

Just before we took off I found myself watching the wind sock billow about in the wind…. A voice inside my head said “just flow with the wind sock” 😂😂😂 I am so grateful that I scooped up my inner guru before we left home the other day… and left that tearful, inner banshee far behind.

I guess you can say I really needed a break… as short as it’s been. It’s been so packed full of amazing things to do that I’ve been super excited all of the time. Like Craig in his chocolate shop yesterday 🤦🏻‍♀️😂

Most importantly I have not been a jerk. We’ve not argued once…. We’ve come close but that was all Craig and not me! (He’s just emerged from his headphones on the flight to read that over my shoulder 😆 almost like he knew I was stretching the truth!)

This is our current view. Look at that blue sky!

We had another perfect flight. We descended quite quickly and manage to get the most amazing views over Skye, Loch Ness and the Forth Bridges.

If you zoom in very closely on this one, you’ll see the Old Man of Storr on Skye!!

Loch Ness!

And the photos of the bridges is very poor due to the high level cloud around!

They are there…. Honestly!!

It was glorious when we landed in Edinburgh.

We were home by 2pm which was a great run and I’ve been in shorts and vest top every since. Slathered in suntan lotion too. i believe it will be raining tomorrow… hope not!! It was really strange coming home to sunshine and heat as that doesn’t happen often in Scotland! 😆

Abbie the camper van cost me £693 for an MOT, service and front ball joint because of “they big wheels”…. Hmmm again….. I wonder if I can afford to take the big ones off and go back down to the normal size?!?

That’s a decision for another day.

The washing is already done and hanging out and right now it’s about sunbathing, ☀️☀️☀️

Stay safe everyone 🇮🇸✈️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
