We have a new dear companion, and her name is Suzy. She is small but full of energy, and raring to go whenever we are. She's a Suzuki 4door automatic and we can't get enough of her. Thank goodness for the sweet angel Icelander at the Budget rent a car, who upgraded us from a manual to automatic free of charge, allowing Brian and I to trade out driving responsibilities. Thus far, the workload has been entirely on his shoulders. Yesterday we drove around the Golden Circle......a favorite circuit just outside of the city with some of Iceland's most photographed areas. Our first stop was Pingvellir (pronounced THingvellir...we think), an old meeting place for Norsemen, and Parliamentary sight. Here you can also see the tectonic plates sliding against one other (we didn't, but supposedly you can). The true Golden Circle blog will debut at a later date, when we have less spotty internet service. This is just a sneak peek.
