Icelandic Kea Skyr Drykkur Mango Astaraldin (Passionfruit)

10 Icelandic Kea Skyr Drykkur Mango Astaraldin (Passionfruit) 1

After only a few scant hours of sleep, I was up early again for another tour. This one was nearly six hours away on the other side of the island, so my jetlag came in handy as I slept pretty much the whole time.

We stopped off at one point at a gas station where I bought this container of Kea Skyr Drykkur Mango Astaraldin for 170 Icelandic krona (about $1.41 USD). I didn't realize drykkur = drink, so instead of the thick Greek yogurt-like skyr I was expecting, it was drinkable yogurt (Well, technically drinkable cheese since skyr is cheese with a yogurt-like consistency).

While the mango and passionfruit drink was very yummy, it tasted like any other yogurt drink I could get back home. Not nearly as exciting as my first experience with skyr at Kex Hostel - Reykjavik - Iceland. I did have the breakfast buffet at the hostel again earlier that morning, but had to rush so I wouldn't miss my pick up. *Sigh.* So sad for all the skyr I wanted to eat, but couldn't.

Some scenes of Iceland as we drove by.

Except for the green, the huge mountains and sparse houses reminded me of driving through the Navajo Nation in Arizona.
