Iceland part 3: from above!
21 April 11
The first few photos in this post are from the viewing platform at the top of The Hallgrímskirkja, the enormous church you can see from nearly anywhere in Reykjavik. We used it as a beacon whenever we got lost and the GPS was not co-operating with my attempts at Icelandic spelling.
The rest of the photos are from our helicopter trip! My mum, the adventure seeker, spent four days wearing me down before I agreed to go with her and the whole hour in the air practically hanging out of the window taking photos. I spent the first 10 minutes absolutely terrified and the next 50 trying not to puke. It was really cool to see stuff from above (more photos to come!), but the intense motion sickness was just too much for me. Thank god we didn't go for the 2.5 hour tour, I would have died.
btw, we went with this company, who were really great and only lightly made fun of me for being a total pussy (when they saw that we both had dSLRs, they offered to take the doors off for us for better pics and I squeaked 'NO, IT'S REALLY OK, KEEP THE DOORS ON!!!').
