Icelandic Moss tea

Icelandic Moss tea

Icelandic Moss tea. It’s earthy, aromas that remind me of Vancouver’s forest, mossy, mushrooms, dried leaves, the damp earth. I love it, and also cannot wait to be back in our forests for a hike again.

Breakfast by the sea ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m in such a happy place right now… Homemade pancakes, all sorts of smoked and pickled fish, and homemade spelt bread.

Trying something new. A cod fish paste out of a tube. Not bad actually, much like a pรขtรฉ.

Every morning I wake feeling more and more dazed and light headed. Today I’m not even sure the coffee will help ease it. Not enough sleep is adding up. In the west its a lot sunnier, thus brighter, and since sunset is at 11:30+ pm, there’s not much of a semi dusk here anymore. @_@

After meeting a local at the info centre who had similar love for design and architecture, I asked her what she would recommend I must see or do in the port of the north, Akureyi, while avoiding the hoards of cruise ship tourists. I chose this, best ice cream in Iceland, and then checked out the new cafe/bistro up in the botanical gardens. Will post photos of the beautiful building when I get to d/l images off my dslr ๐Ÿ™‚ Here: a strawberry and vanilla soft serve dipped in caramel chocolate. I quite liked the ice cream, super light, only a hint of sweetness. The coating was just the right amount of sweetness to balance in.

This morning started off with fresh home made spiced loaf by the guesthouse owner. It was a light fare without any proteins, which was unexpected for all the guest. Each one that sat down asked, where are the meat and cheese? Fatigue has kicked in for us all I think, day 4.  Haha, I felt the same pain. Oh well. You win some then lose some.
