While driving to the airport, we made a pitstop at the famed Blue Lagoon. The drive to the Blue Lagoon hot springs is breathtaking- enormous scatterings of lava beautifully spread out on the landscape.

For all you fellow germ-phobes out there, the water in the lagoon renews itself every 40 hours, so don't sweat it. We didn’t have time for the spa services but just being in the water is a relaxing experience in itself and there’s mud stations around the lagoon where you can slather yourself in the soothing silica mud (the lagoon is naturally powered by geothermal energy, resulting in warm seawater that contains a variety of healing minerals, silica and algae).
Nerd-fact: the Asian and American tectonic plates meet at the Blue Lagoon, which means when you’re in the water you’re actually bathing between two continents. Pretty dope.
