First day mixed weather and wearing all our layers and complete rain gear. Surprised to see swans and so many of them! Also strangely surprised to see so many tourists, many Chinese. Delicious basil and tomato soup for lunch only a tenner each! Blown away by the prices ~ scratchy Iceland sweaters are £20O+ and not sure you would be seen dead in one outside of the country!!
Budget means accommodation tonight with shared bathrooms and no breakfast or soundproofing! Too outraged by prices to pay for alcohol so it's a beer each and a slug of brandy for us this holiday. Even a wee can cost £1.50! Thank goodness the scenery is good. Colin finding driving on roads strangely mesmerizing and hard to stay on track !
