    Snowed in.....

    The good and the bad.

    Good.......15 inches of snow overnight, yay! Nice fluffy, crisp white snow everywhere.

    Bad......stuck in Reykjavik Airport as flights delayed.

    Good......Been up since 4am, but joined in with some very drunk people on their way home and made some amazing snow angels.

    Bad....How on earth can they afford to get drunk here?....£15 for one gin and tonic!!

    Good......all roads open and places still functions perfectly. Looks stunning.

    Bad...We're coming home

    Retired, so no rush. Coming home in the middle of a bathroom refurbished so I'm hoping we've got a working loo!

    ​Bad.... You're retired and I'm not. The way things are in the UK, you will probably need to be a millionaire by the time my shot comes around

    Meanwhile I'm still sat in a plane going nowhere, waiting to be de-iced. My OH reckons I've needed de-icing for years

    what we all really want to know is, how much is your in flight sandwich?
    That's not a kinky euphemism, 'tis serious issue these days X)

    Loved Iceland, people were great and we had a lovely Thai meal. Missed the northern lights but just means we'll have to try again.
    Arrived to black roads, an hour later as we spent a vast sum of money on a drink we were surrounded by a white out. Deep snow & every taxi we got in drove faster than I would on tarmac but somehow stopped at junctions. My right foot ached for trying to hit a brake pedal.
    Evem looks beautiful in the summer photos we saw.

    No food as yet, but in the airport 2 black coffees and 2 rounds of toast with bacon = £14.50.
    Aside from the cost we've had a great trip, we saw the Northern Lights this time and there is a great tour where you go into an ice cave excavated within a glacier. The journey up to it was brilliant on its own.

    I can feel I'm being de-iced, hopefully the earth will move soon!

    Stay away from yellow snow.

    Your destination airport is closed due to wind, fog, leaves & protestors so you're diverted to the Falklands as it's the nearest available runway then onto a replacement bus service

    Don't you mean yellow snow is very tasty. A rare delicacy. If you see some be sure to try it?
