We came to Mallorca a few days ago, with my parents and Ulrike. Andrea met us at the airport and today Jessica and her family joined us. Of course (almost) everyone had to go for a swim in the ocean. The weather is a bit cool and windy, but good enough to spend time on the beach and enjoy icecream in the evening.
We came into Iceland yesterday morning and spent a couple of hours walking around Reykjavik. Later we drove to Nesjavellier, where we are staying in a very nice hotel. In the afternoon we hiked around the area (8 km), which has a lot of hot water gushing out. There is a thermal plant there as well. The pool at the hotel is a pleasant 38 degrees, feels good after walking a lot.
Today we drove the Golden Circle and hiked in Thingvellier (8.5 km). Wonderful landscape, and the weather was nice and sunny for most of the day. We had to scrape the ice of the car windows this morning though, and the maximum temperature today was 6 degrees Celsius. Fortunately, we have winter clothing with us.
We are spending a day in Toronto, not having been here for over 40 years. It was very interesting to walk around the city. The weather is quite warm and humid, but it didn’t rain.
