Fabulous Friday - Geyser


The word Geyser comes from Icelandic, the first documented geyser, was named Geyser and is in Iceland.  I have not been to Yellowstone, I saw my first geyser in Iceland last spring.  

Geyser rarely erupts, but the one next to it erupts every 8 to 15 minutes. Not quite set your watch by it, but often enough that you can stand around and watch.  We did.  I found it fabulous.  

There is an amazing hotel across the street from Geyser, the next time I want to stay there.  They have massive four wheel drive tundra tours from there, I want to ride one of those. They look amazing.  

There are many things left to see.  IcelandAir has first class, off season fares of $999 round trip.  I can't do it this fall, but spring will be here before we know it.

  1. That's a great fare to Iceland. Cheaper than from Spain. I sat on a bench in the rain to see Old Faithful in the '80s. A moment before it was due, a nearby small geyser erupted and took all the oomph from Old Faithful. It was kind of funny.

  2. I've always wanted to see a geyser erupt or at least the Steam coming out. I know what you're thinking, haven't I already seen a geyser erupt?

  4. I've never seen a geyser, but I have been to a Five Guys does that count?

  6. I could have sworn that I responded to this yesterday, about loving the idea of the tundra ride.
    Maybe I am being afflicted by the older age of your Saturday post and just "thought" I'd posted.
