Missing travel guide book

Hi travel friends,

My husband and I just spent a wonderful two weeks in Iceland.
Unfortunately we couldn't find our travel guide book after we stayed a night at Laugarfell camping from July 25th to 26th. We left it on a shelf in front of the toilet (above the garbage cans). The staff and guests who stayed there were all really helpful and looked everywhere. We suppose that it has been taken by mistake and would very much like to have it back again :)

It's a Lonely Planet travel guide with colorful bookmarks and a overview map of Iceland with notes on it.

Thank you for every hint!
Corina

I thought it was an unwritten rule, that books left in public spaces in hotels were up for grabs. I've left many behind on purpose, including guidebooks. .

I have my Iceland-based drone searching the area, but unfortunately, still not finding anything 😩

I have done the same at hotels with a book cove and also in Airbnbs where the owner has provided travel info.

They have an area in tje guest house where people can leave and exchange books, that's right. But ours was pretty obviously not for exchange, so we don't think someone thought it was..

You might try posting in the Iceland forum on TripAdvisor. That has a larger audience.

Your contact info is in/on the book?

I will forego asking why it was brought into a restroom

I purposely left my RS Iceland guidebook and 2 unused Covid antigen tests behind in my Reykjavik hotel. Hopefully, someone found them useful.
