We are now at our second stop in Iceland. Reykjavic was nice, but I am glad to be out of the city. It was just so difficult with Max. It is a nice and very clean city. Buses run on time, lots of people speak English and everyone was very friendly.

We stayed at the Hilton, but it was somewhat outside of the center of town. So we had to take a bus to the main train station, and then another bus to get wherever we needed to go. Which, if it was just me and Charlie, would not be a big deal. But if we got moving as soon as Max got up, it was about 30-60 minutes before we got to wherever we needed to go. So, it was a challenge. We did not see very much. We went to one museum. Ate some good Thai food, got some Greek food, and took some pictures of the church, though we did not get there with enough time to go inside. Max struggled sleeping at night, but the curtains were not blackout ones, and it never really gets dark, so I think that was difficult for him.

Today we picked up our car and took off for Stykkisholmur. The scenery on the trip was beautiful. Max cried for a good 30 minutes and then slept for 35. But then we got here. It is amazing. The hotel is perfect. A little tiny room with blackout curtains, lots of fluffy bedding, and a pack 'n' play in the corner for my baby to sleep in. A little tiny bathroom, and only a few floors so we can sit in the lobby while he naps and use our baby monitor to listen to him. Which is better for all of us. And there are several restaurants within easy walking distance so we can go eat and then come right back if he needs to.

Tomorrow we are hoping to explore Snaefellsjokull National Park and take a hike along the coast from Hellnar to Arnarstapi. We will see what Max thinks. But he is already in a much better mood since we got here. Charlie said he thinks Max thinks we're back in Nebraska, which is why he's so happy, I don't know :)
