Sorry for the lateness of this post about my holiday, I meant to do each day as it happened. But I got too involved in talking to people and drinking / eating.
Right Day 2 !
Woke up at an amazing time of 8am, usually its the crack of noon for me. Actually made it for breakfast, at 9am.
Found some Eve players in the lobby of the Hilton Nordica Hotel, started chatting about things in game. Note usual way of spotting a eve player in the nordica, is that they have either a) Eve Shirt on b) Playing eve on a laptop c) Talking about module fits on ships :)
After chatting for a while, a player called CrayC, said he wanted to visit the town. So off we go on a nice walk down town, it was not raining and the wind was not too bad either.
One thing I noticed was there was lots of Pizza Places and Bars, note that Pizza King in Reykjavik, is apparently the best place to get pizza.
On walking down saw many cool craft shops, thought of Katy then hehe. Then I remembered I forgot to pack some boxer shorts, I always forget something ... Went camping once and forgot my sleeping bag brrr that was one cold night. Oh back on subject. Found a shop named "Man" which was like Top man, and bought the required items.
Now you think well theres lots of shops with names I never heard of before, but theres a Top Shop, and a Clarks shoe store there. hehe
Ohh and a Mac Store and a Sony Store :)
On the way back, we decided it was lunch time. Went to get a Boat, the Icelandic eqivilent of a subway sandwich. Though theres plenty of subway places there. Mmmmm had a Bacon, Ham, and salad roll, a can of coke for £ 5 ish. Mmmm Cheap lunch.
On the way back it was decided to visit the shopping centre, that was nearby, so after dropping off out loot (shopping) we got a taxi to the centre. It was called Kringlan.
Three floors of shopping, the usual stuff, dvd's, sony and mac stores, and clothing / house wares. We shopped around for a bit, and a camera crew came up to us. Asked if we were american, though I was English, CrayC was Danish, and the other person we were with was German. The crew was there to ask Icelandic people what they thought of the US Election. After CrayC gave his opinion of the election, we decided to go back to the Hotel.
Dinner was Pizza Hut again, I didn`t want to eat alone, and a group of 12 of us went to Pizza Hut, hehe nice Icelandic food :). Its amazing we had never met each other but we got on well, we all played Eve so could chat about something :) I had Pepperoni Pizza and Tuborg to drink for the second night running.
After we had finished dinner, walked next door to the hotel. Where we chatted for a bit, then decided, the group grew abit to about 20 of us. We then went and walked back town to go out on the town. Took 30 mins to reach town, and couldn`t find the bar we wanted to. Found a grill / Bar named Oliver's and I imeddiatelty thought of Lisa :) Tonight was Live karokoe night, which was quite cool. Someone there had a guitar and played some tunes, whilst someone sang. Highlight was a Goonswarm (Eve alliance) singing Britney Spears - Hit me baby one more time, was very funny and he won a drink for his effort. I didn`t sing as I can`t sing, and was too shy to.
Pictures available for Oliver's is day one on this link http://fotos.elissen.com/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=7825
Time hit midnight, I think, and we took taxi's back to the hotel and had more beer at the bar there, Finally hot bed at 2am I think. hehe times are rough as I think my vision got blurry. I don`t normaly drink, have got merry about 6 times this year so far.
End of day 2.
