Picture of the week - Beach in Winter

No comments

This winter has been really nice weather wise. Lots of sun and snow. We went to Nautholtvík a geothermal beach today to enjoy some sun, though it was much too cold for swimming and the hot pot was empty.

So I have a new phone number now...

No comments sim card never worked outside of Iceland and yesterday I went to Siminn to fix this. Coming into the shop I was first of all dumbfounded by the fact that they wanted me to type in my kennitala to get a number to be served. One of the attendants saw my confused face and I told her about my errand. For some reason a credit card was needed to make my sim card work abroad and as luck had it I even had mine with me. But as it was not an Icelandic credit card I suddenly ended up in a Little Britain sketch.
I thanked the (to her credit flustered) attendant, went out of the shop, into the adjacent phone shop (Nova), took a number by pressing a button, asked for a prepaid sim card which works abroad, got one, paid and left without ever having to give a kennitala, Icelandic credit card or anything else.

Iceland has been ridiculously winter wonderlandish the last two weeks.

Today's weather

Iceland might fly off today, expect us to be found somewhere in North America (maybe California? we could use some sun!). Seriously though hurricane like winds all over Iceland and in many parts electricity is out (not here though).
I have never seen orange on this map before:
