As usual we went by train to Copenhagen that astonishingly enough drove straight onto a ferry to be transported to Denmark from Germany. Really cool to get off your train and step onto a ferry and walk up to the deck. Cruising into Denmark we were amazed to see the amount of wind turbines that were visible.

On our return trip we travelled on WOW airlines. They have a slightly different way of saying the safety talk than most, what follows was what was said as best as I can remember it. 'If an accident occurs an air mask will magically appear, at that point stop screaming and put the mask on' and 'under your seat you will find a beautiful yellow life vest...it comes with a light to make you look super cool and I hope it matches your shoes'.
Iceland has a few really common sense laws, for instance embarrassing names are not allowed, if the name is not on the registry you have to make an application. It can be rejected on the grounds 'a forename may not be such as to cause its bearer embarrassment', all those Hollywood stars would fail. Iceland may need more investigation in the future, especially as it has one of the largest glaciers, but with a lot more time and a hire car.
