I have to say that I was excited about having Iceland as a pit stop, I have read so many great things about this country. It has a tremendous record on women rights, it all began with their 1975 lady strike, women both at work and at home went on strike and the menfolk quickly got the message. They were one of the first to elect a female president and as of present day politics, they have far more women leaders than we do here in the United States. Moreover, it is a fascinating country to explore with all of its volcanoes, mountains and coastline.
I was a little disappointed with both of my layovers because I didn’t get to see anything other than the outside of an airport and these all look alike. The first time, my layover was from 4:30 to 6:30 in the morning, I couldn’t even see anything outside and the second time, I was running through the terminal, late from the first flight, trying to board the second flight. So all I have to present to you from my time in Iceland are these pictures from my window seat. At least the sky was pretty spectacular in terms of cloud formations competing with the sun, I thought it was pretty grand from my viewpoint.
