Iceland : Larva Caving and Horse Riding

LOL, it had been a month already but I still didn't finish with the story in Iceland. So the very next day in Iceland, I start off with this super famous local yogurt, Skyr. It was one of the recommended side during breakfast by The texture is a bit thick compared to other yogurt but still the taste is marvelous. Just before the activities of the day, we all went to this so called flee market which is indeed nothing more than "pasar payang" in Malaysia. The goods isn't that cheap thou. But one thing that I managed to grab was the taste of shark, which was Yuckss. Me don't like it. At all. There was a very strong after-taste. Fishy and indeed not delicious. Still am glad that I managed to have a bite on it. Whale and Shark, tick and tick.

The so popular Icelandic Yogurt, Skyr
Free shark give-out.
After finished wondering around the flee market, we all head off to the landside, abit outskirt of the city towards the mountainous area where we all gonna start our Larva Caving. Yuhuuu super excited. We all changed to this prison-looking attire which was indeed provided by the company.

Prison Break.
Feeling on the top of the Larva
More and more.
The experience was indeed precious, even the feeling is just like entering Gua Kandu back in Gopeng. No good lighting means you see nothing in there. Blurghhh. One thing that is totally different is the coldness. This cave is freaking cold. All the stalectide & stalecmide (wrongly-spell) were made of ice. Memang exacly like the Ice Age movie except it is dark.

One of the best photo in the cave.
Icy ice.
Finished caving, on the very next day we go for horse riding. I must admit that this is the first time experience I ride a horse. Plus this is the first time I ride on a living things, human excluded. I think I just instantaneously fall in love with it : )

The horse stable.
Everyone in the tour was assigned to a horse and for me I got this horse, Gangster is what I was told it normally been called. But for that day, o special occasion as am the rider, I give him a special name, Amanda instead. Cute rite. The whole journey on the horse that approximately took 1 hour 30 minutes was indeed very beautiful. Regardless of the cold wind blowing, the falling snow, the frozen leg and fingers, you can never expect something better that just sit on top of a horse and just let is walk you thru the larva site.

Not only that, the changing weather every 5 minutes was indeed the weirdest experience ever. Snow and sun isn't really a good friend. Not only that, thru this 1 hour plus also I can feel the real coldness of Iceland. One thing I never noticed before. LOL, it's freaking cold.

Cam-whoring with Gangster
Meet my horsie.
The best fish and chips I ever had.
Later that day, we all went to one of the texas food restaurant in the city-side which served a very amazingly fresh and delicious Fish and Chips. I am truly enjoyed it and if only chili sauce is available, the taste gonna be just as perfect as it can ever be.

Then just to finish off the day, I, again walk thru the city center, looking for cheaper souvenir and then go back to our apartment and call it the day.

Falling snow late that evening at city.
