8-22-2015 - Reykjavik, Iceland to Denver, Colorado

Posted on Sat 22 August 2015 in Baltic Cruise and Northern Europe • 2 min read

Somewhere over Northern Canada: I am in the plane right now and just got caught up on all my blog posts. Transportation to the airport was fairly easy. The man who took us to the apartments yesterday took us to the bus terminal where we caught an airport shuttle to Keflavik International. Unfortunately, our flight was delayed an hour because the plane was delayed arriving. We walked around the shops and ate lunch just to kill time. We also bought food for the plane. We have a driver set up to pick us up from Denver International Airport so I'll assume that that will work out fine.

Right now we are flying over northern Canada. We flew over some of Greenland on the way and now we are approaching the Hudson Bay. It was a great way to see the terrain of Greenland. Even one of the flight attendants thought it was cool (normally the ground is obscured by clouds). The middle of Greenland is basically one huge glacier. It was very impressive, all I could see out of the window was white up to the horizon in all directions (some of the white was clouds, but not much of it). I'll post some pictures of the terrain here.

Greenland isn't soo green...

We just passed over Bismarck, North Dakota, USA. It's been really turbulent all the way across the Canadian plains. The seatbelt sign has been on basically since we reached mainland Canada. Thanks a lot Canadians. They are coming through with drinks now that the turbulence has stopped. I'm pretty sure that's the most turbulence I've ever been in (or at least that I can remember).

It's been a hectic trip, but it was totally worth it. I'll be posting some reflections on the trip on my personal blog: sumnerevans.wordpress.com so be sure to check that out.

So with that I will conclude my discourse on the events of this trip. I hope that you’ve all enjoyed reading and please do check out my reflections on the trip. They'll probably be profound.
