A to Z Challenge - X is for X marks the Spot

The adventure addicts (the vintage edition - tee hee) are heading out again!  AND there's not just one X marks the spot, but 11 (including Reykjavik)! Oh, the places we're going!

Viking Ocean Cruises

We're following the midnight sun from Iceland up across the Arctic Circle to the northernmost point of Norway.

I'm busy exploring the official "X's" on the map and thinking about some of the nearby places where I'd like to add an X, or three. It's all very exciting but also time-consuming. Just what can be fit into the time constraints? How far afield dare we wander? What activities are as reasonable for us vintage folk as they are desirable?

There are glaciers, geysers, icebergs, waterfalls, mountains, horses, whales, sea eagles, and seals. And that's just Iceland! Hop across to Norway and it's fjords, fishing villages, fjords, waterfalls, fjords, king crabs, hikes with huskies, and did I mention the fjords? We'll be kayaking for sure!

Southwest to Scotland for ancient iron age settlements, ponies, puffins, and single malt scotch.

Then old London town for museums, Thames cruises, The Eye, and Westminster Abbey to pay my respects to the late Stephen Hawking. And so much more.

This is going to be great!
