Iceland Trip 2015 - Post 9 of 10 - Day 5 - the journey home

The journey home is always a little bit of anti-climax… but not without some highlights.
We started by packing up the rooms and checking that nothing had been left behind. We didn't have a guide for this last day, but I'd been reading up anyway, and we had a final trip around the Reykjanes peninsula to the SW of Reykjavik. We travelled out on gravel roads, and visited black volcanic mountains and lakes, with geothermal steam rising…
We ended up on the coast, with some amazing sea stacks, and waves. Then back to the airport via the bridge between the continents. We were entertained by Inuit from Greenland, and then boarded our flight, to plug into entertainment. There was some delay through passport control, and then our coach driver got us safely back to Ely exactly on schedule at 11pm....
