25.08.2009 Iceland‧§ Day 1 § Reykajvik & Stkkisholmur

Before I go on more about our trip, I would like to advise what sort of carmera to Iceland - a panoramic camera. I have never thought of having one before I went to Iceland, and I have never, ever wanted it so much when I was in Iceland. Ohhh.. Xpan you are just too expensive for me..! Tripod was kind of useless as it was so windy on both sides of almost all the waterfalls which I had been. The 70-200mm lens was just a tool to keep me fit - the Autumn in Iceland was a bit shy to see us, therefore all the summer visitors have gone already by the time we got there... The Keflavík international airport was very clean, modern and nice. It was at least ten times better than Heathrow Terminal five. As we were rushing for the flybus so I didn't have enough time to take a photo of it, shame. The flybus was very comfortable and clean. When we arrived at BSI, we found that there was leakage in our small bottle of sesame oil, so we then spent time to tidy it up, nightmare. OK, you can laugh at us why on earth we brought that to Iceland - I was worried I could not get some oil to cook and I didn't want to buy a big bottle of it there, traveling with it around Iceland. I then asked the staff in BSI for a map and about the locations of banks, and set off to get some Icelandic Krona (ISK). It was cloudy when I was walking to the center of Reykajvik, rainy on my way back. That was my first sight of Reykajvik - peaceful, relaxing and clean, very few people around. Houses were very geometric, looked like something you could build from LOGO. 拍攝器材:Pentax espio mini + 過期 8 年的 Polaroid 100 We waited at the BSI until 17:30pm to take the bus to Stkkisholmur. When I first saw the *bus*, I was very er... surprised. It was because it didn't look like a bus, it was a 13 seats vehicle and it was hooked to a wheel caritage which was used to store passengers' luggage. It was very interesting and special. There was no bus ticket issued and we could actually pay by credit card! You could pay everything by credit card in Iceland, this was what I found out later in the journey. Veiw from the moving bus, it was going very fast, slightly blur but rather artistic, right? Stopping at Borgarnes for 15mins We met a German backpacker, Sacha, on the bus and he was going to stay at the youth hostel, too. He was very kind that he gave us a hand to drag one of our suitcase up the small hill to the youth hostel, against all the crushed stones... There was a small incident - the staff of the youth hostel could not find (or I should say, lost, I had rung them for the booking about 2 months ahead) our booking for the dorm beds. Luckily there were still dorm beds available. Otherwise, I don't know, probably we would have to sleep on the corridor (just kidding, the hotel would be the solution). The night view was beautiful looking out from the kitchen. However, I didn't went out to take a photo of it as we were having an interesting with Sacha. Slightly regret about that as on the next evening the weather was not suitable for taking any photos - it was rainy. I quite like the colour signature of Jessops 400, dreamy kind of colour. 拍攝器材:Canon 300V + Tarmon A09 + 過期 3 年的 Jessops 400
