Ole Flat Hippies Day 5 Iceland

This is our last road trip before we all fly home to Anchorage, Alaska.  Can’t wait to see where we go today.

Looks like we are headed down a long gravel road today.

We stopped for a photo at the river as we entered Fjallabak Nature Reserve.

Then we had a nice picnic lunch in Landmannalaugar Highlands.

Next we went to the hot pool which once again we did not get in because we didn’t bring our swimming suits.  I think we might have got all squishy anyway.

It was a nice way to end our road trips in Iceland.

Flat Ole Hippies Day 3 in Iceland

We took off with our friends today and they said we were really going to have a great time.  I guess they knew where they were going this time.

We did have a great day! We saw some great rivers and waterfalls, played in the snow, went down a long gravel road, checked out some tomatoes and stopped at a brewery for a couple.

Can’t wait to see what adventure they come up with tomorrow.

Flat Ole Hippies Do Geyser, Waterfall and Brewery

We set off with our friends this morning heading for the Golden Circle again.  It was rainy and very foggy.DSC_0019

David and Cindy actually knew where they were going because we ended up at the Geyser.

 

After we checked that out we went into the shop and we got to drive a tractor around the store.  That was pretty cool.

Next stop was Gullfoss Waterfall.  It was huge and fast.  It was the most amazing waterfall we had ever seen.

 

Our next stop was very disappointing to us.  It was Fontana Geothermal Baths and we were not allowed in.  They said we would fall apart if we went in the warm water. They even said our colors would run.  We did get to look at it though.

To make up for it though we got some nice beer at the brewery.

After that we were all pretty beat because we started off early this morning.  We can’t wait to see where they take us tomorrow.

 

Flat Ole Hippies in Iceland

Well we started off this morning with our friends.  We were not sure they knew where they were going but they said, “Sure we do.  We are going to the Golden Circle.”  We never saw a golden circle but we did have a good time.  We headed out on our road trip.  We saw beautiful waterfalls, great scenery, wonderful clouds and drove through a tunnel under a fjord.

When we got back to the apartment we found out that we never did get to the Golden Circle, but fun was had by all anyway.

We then decided to go to downtown Reykjavik and have a beer.

 

The bartenders were so pleasant that we left them a tip.  Then we all walked home discussing what we would do tomorrow.

 

Flat Ole Hippies Do England

This nice couple, Cindy and David, are so much fun.  They take us everywhere with them. We went to The Four Thieves and had a beer with them.

We got to ride the underground.  It was a really big train.

We went to Swiss Cottage where we had a beer and fish and chips.  We hung out by the taps and our friends David and Gary.

 

We got to go to Chester on a train.  It was a lot of fun. To our surprise our new friends found yet another brewery pub called Brewery & Kitchen.  We had a nice beer there with a good head.

Then back on the train to go to Bebington which we were told was on the Wirral.  We were really tired and kind of slept through those few days.  We did get up to ride the ferry to Liverpool.

We got to go to The Cavern but I didn’t see the Beatles.

Back on the train we went to head back to London.  We were told we were flying to Scotland next.

 

 

Ole Flat Hippies Do Italy

The Church Palace was a lot of fun. The food was good and the drink was better. We rode a lion and took a selfie in front of artwork called selfie.  The bed was nice too.

 

These people that brought us along with them are really cool.  They took us everywhere.  We got to go to the Vatican Museum.

We had some great pasta for dinner.

We went to the forum which was very old.  We met a seagull with her two babies. We checked out a well too.

We hung out with the Ron

Then we headed to the colosseum.  They said many animals, slaves and Christians were killed there.  I wonder what would happen to flat people like us.

 

We met some new friends when our carrying friends stopped for lunch.

We went to a concert at a Refuge camp.

 

We got to go out to lunch the next day.

Then we got to go to St Peter’s Basilica with the choir.

 

We next stayed in Montecatini and got to eat breakfast out in the garden.

There was even a huge lemon tree.

We then visited with John for a little bit.

We found a really cool phone.

The drinks all through Italy were great.  We tried many different things.

 

We had tons of different pastas.

 

We had a lot of white meat but we did have some fish that was very good.

 

The dessert were out of this world.

 

We rode on a gondola, saw many rivers, were put in prison, the bridges were cool and sang many times with the chorus.

 

Italy was really fun.  We met many new friends and saw many new things.  The people  who took us with them were great.  They never left us behind or stuck us in a bag where we could not see.  They fed us good food and drink.  I am glad they have decided to take us with them everywhere.

Take Care,

The Flat Ole Hippies

I don’t have much time to tell you about the Flat Ole Hippies adventures because their day is not over yet.  We will be heading down to meet the rest of the Anchorage Concert Chorus as they arrive.

I will tell you about the photos real quick though.  Last night when they got in they were very happy to see their bed.  Breakfast this morning was really good.  After that they wondered around this extremely cool Church Palace Hotel.  They had their picture taken in front of a piece of art work called Selfie.  They also rode a lion.  They then went for a nice walk and when they got back they had a beer.  After that they returned to their room for a nap.

Well I will have to tell you more about their trip later because it is time to head down to meet everyone.
