Your photos are beautiful and I agree with valpal I thought there would be some snow. Still they are nice. What was the temp. there?

Hi Harlot, what happened to your avatar?

The temperature was quite changing from one place to another.But for me it's never cold enough for I like cold. I breathe and live cold.

I'd that mostly it was around 2 to 3C except when we went up on the glacier it was -3C in a matter of minutes and when I say minutes it's about 2 minutes!!!
But since it is very dry cold it's not the same as cold with humidity which is a killer, though dry cold can kill as well but it's not the same.
It got really cold when we were on top and the wind picked up then it was real cold.

Hi LOA
You like my new avatar?

I don't know how anyone would like the cold. I'm trying not to turn the heat on at night here. I really thought there would be more snow ,I guess that shows me what I know.

I'm gald you had a nice time, do you and your husband plan on going anywhere warm?

Yes I like it very much it's a nice one.

No, not in a near future anyways for as much as I would like to go where it is warmer climate I would not enjoy myself for I have asthma and migraines and these two unfortunate health weaknesses are not compatible with hot and warm.

Even in the lagoon, the thermal waters could be very warm at some spot and even though my old bones hurts like the devil sometimes I do go in it but is out very fast. And a second handicap is that my body doesn't cool off by itself when doing physical efforts for a time instead of cooling off by sweating I keep getting warmer and warmer and that is not good for I end up weak with not resistance so I have to either cool off in cold water like I like to do or drink cold water or eat ice cubes and then I'm fine...even husband don't come near me when I'm hot for I am like a furnaise and can't stand myself that is why we have a pool here and in summer time if water gets too warm and doesn't refresh me I empty some of it and refill with colder water.

Maybe when my thermostat get better and IF it gets better for even young I was like this, well then maybe we'll plan on going in warmer countries.

Just added a few more pics in my gallery.

Sorry if it takes a bit long but I have to look at all of them and then resize them for I have quite a lot...and it is a long process.

Hope you enjoy them.

Valpal59,

The sweaters that my husband and I are wearing on the pics are called "IceWear" and we found them while visiting a wool factory in a small village in Iceland.

They are made of pure wool and have an insulated inside made of polyester and polyurethane material.It is wind proof and very warm when worn with a good sweater under it and very light...better then a big coat.

But as warm and wind proof as it is it would not be enough to only wear this sweater in temperature say in minus 20C alone one would definetely need a warm big coat over it.

For as we were way up on the glacier the temperature dropped form 1C to -4C in a minute and add the windshill factor with that...so just the sweater would not have been enough for staying out for long hours.

But they are very comfortable to wear for their lightness.

Glad you enjoyed the pics.
