Day five of our trip to Iceland was by far one of my favorites, we got to go to the Blue Lagoon. When we arrived the five guys in our class were ready for the swimming pool etiquette that I mentioned earlier. We all quickly disrobed and headed to the shower only to find that, since it’s mainly a tourist attraction, protocol didn’t apply here, everyone was still in their trunks. We laughed off the easy mistake and headed out to the warm lagoon waters shortly there after.
The lagoon’s waters took something of a learning curve to get the hang of. I was originally expecting a large pool of water divided into a few sections of varying heat. But what the reality of it was that the heat moved from place to place, and if you really wanted to stay in the very warm pocket of water you just found then you’d have to keep on the move. We had a lot of fun jumping in and out of the bath like water to go check out the sauna’s or swimming up to the water-side bar. Eventually we left the lagoon’s waters and headed back to the hotel for a quick nap before going to catch a few shows at the last official night of Airwaves.
At our final night of the festival we spent the evening walking from show to show, catching about 15 minutes of every set until we arrived at Húrra to check out Ghostdigital. Our group had a table in the back, so I didn’t get to see too much of the show, but we made trips, in groups, to dance to the techno like beats that the band was putting out.
