    My daughter and I have reservations with you for Thursday, August 20th and Friday, August 21st. We are arriving by Icelandia on Thur August 20th @9:15 AM and getting a 4x4 vehicle. We plan on going to Lake Myvatn and Dettisfoss Waterfalls on Thursday. Is it faster to go straight to the Lake or come by you to drop off our luggage? What time is dinner served on Thursday. Also we would love to do a horse ride on Firday towards the late afternoon or evening. Our flight back is at 21:10. Please let us now what is possible in terms of these requests. We are very excited about staying with you. Thank You. Lucy Slurzberg and Eliana Slurzberg
