We caught a later brunch on our second day in Iceland at a place I really wanted to try. Grai Kotturin was another place I’d discovered in my research for this article over at Dish Trip. Its name translates to something like Grey Cat or Grey Kitten, which sold me even further. Who doesn’t want to eat a cozy brunch in a place called Grey Kitten? I certainly do. Especially after a rainy and cold walk during which a giant truck barreled through a giant puddle and made a giant splash of water that soaked my left side.
After brunch, we decided to figure out if going to the Blue Lagoon on a rainy day was at all a good idea. The woman in the tourist shop (I know, I know, usually not our thing) said that it would be perfect. She said it would be warm and cozy with even more steam rising off the top of the water, and that going in the rain was her favorite.
The Blue Lagoon is quite the tourist attraction and definitely priced as such. I heard that years ago, before the resort was built around it, you could just roll up and jump in. No more. That’s ok. It was totally worth it. I almost wanted to pay the overpriced admission a second time before we left the country. Sometimes when I’m really stressed or my body is sore and tired, I fantasize about going back to Iceland just for this.
