T (3) – My favourite was riding on the horses.

2. What was your least favourite thing from our holiday?

N (5) – When we drove for ages and ages. [We tried to drive from Reykjavik to Vik in one straight go and underestimated the time it would take and had to turn back!! it did go on for ages!]
T (3) – I liked it all!

4. Where was the best place we stayed?

N (5) The farm as they had horses and we could get the eggs every morning, and they put a flag up for us. [Thorey at the farm near Selfoss had the Union Jack flying on her flagpole when we arrived and for our stay there!]
T [3] I liked the cabin where Lampy tried to get in all the time. [Lampy was the name of the naughty sheep who always tried to jump into our log cabin!]

5. What was the best souvenir you brought home?

N (5) My trolls [Icelanders love their trolls and there were some to pick up in many shops so we started a small troll collection!]
T (3) My horse [a model Icelandic horse to remind her of riding them].
[I know this is what my children say but I have to just comment that the Icelandic wool is so beautiful and the hats and gloves the children got when we were there is my favourite thing, so gorgeous]
