Iceland : Hot Dip In The Blue Lagoon

Basically this is our very last activity before heading back to Keflavik Airport and waited for our very next flight back to London at dawn tomorrow. One of our activity, The Northen Light Hunting wasn't go as plan. Maybe it just not our luck thou. Basically the occasion here in Blue Lagoon is just dipping and swimming. The place is spectacular and absolutely one of the thing in the world. Perhaps two. I think there is another place that have this kind of baby blue water in Turkey, Pamukkale if am not mistaken.

First step.
Baby blue.
Being here was indeed a new experience to me. Not just go dipping into the baby blue water, but the environment itself was absolutely stunning. The lagoon itself is surrounded by a small man-made mountain using larva stones and this place itself is stranded in the middle of larva field. Unless you have car, being here by bus was actually the best option. If you thinking of walking, forget it, the weather is just too cold for that.

Another thing is that, one thing that is totally new for me is the human exposure. Thank god the changing room isn't the mixing of men and women but still even all of us is men, the scenery is totally different. People in the changing room was so open, and by open I mean really really open. They didn't care about their shuttlecock and showing them to other people isn't a big deal. Without any restriction, from a small kids to an old granpa, they are just let the shuttlecock fly freely in an open area.

One thing that I didn't understand is that they can chit chatting with their friends, mates and even strangers without anything covering the shuttlecock. Even they have towel with them, they preferred to put them on their shoulder instead of covering their shuttlecock. Wow. They walk for over 100m in nude, passing like 40 people and still they are OK with that. Omai mai, totally a new blow to my head.

Steaming hot water.
Reflection of sunlight.
But one thing that I noticed is that they didn't care to show it and other people didn't care to look for it either. Everybody is showing theirs to one another. Multi-shaped, different length and colour but still over the same sex organ. They are not judgmental. And recalling this, its is like the day later in "Padang Masyar" where everyone in nude and nobody cares.

Partner in crime.
And me.
The weather that day was just lovely. It changes every 5-10 minutes, sometimes got cloud cover, sometimes got sun, and even snow for few minutes. The memory was indeed spectacular. This is a must reach place to whoever go to Iceland.

Pinch mouth due to coldness.
More coming
At the entrance before head off.
And this is the outside lagoon.
Overall, trip to Iceland was totally worth every single penny I spent. Most of my "being an oversea student's ambitions" was achieved here. From the snow to the build a snow man, and many single bit and pieces of memory that was not been able to create elsewhere like the full frontal will surely be remembered till forever.
