Last Day in Iceland

Saturday, May 24

Our flight was scheduled for 4:45 pm, so we had some time to continue exploring the town. We walked a few blocks to see the “Sun Voyager,” a sculpture by Jon Gunnar Arnason, and unveiled in 1990. Many people think it is a Viking ship, but Arnason intended it to be a dreamboat, an ode to the sun. It is a promise of undiscovered territory, a dream of hope, progress and freedom. It’s built of stainless steel, set on granite, and located by the sea.

We truly enjoyed our visit to Iceland, but the weather was turning windy and rainy, so it was time to go home. We arrived in Minnesota around 6:00 pm, and home a few hours later, exhausted and happy.

Thanks for traveling with us.
