... will bring it to life for everybody. It's a slow road but turns out it's knocked 60k off our journey. Done a lot of miles but these roads are fantastic, and we've not been stuck behind anyone once. Although there was a quarto of bikers who took a bit of getting passed. We roll into Hofn just before four, the sights on the way in we're fantastic, as we can see the enormous glacier nearby, but it will have to wait until tomorrow. Down to ...
... wine. Hotel Smyrlabjorg is tonight's lodging. It has wifi in the public areas but not the rooms. Tonight we were able to finess that by parking the Seagate Wireless+ in a spot where it could just get the signal and then use it to give us in-room wifi. I love tech.

Then we arrived at the hotel and the day was over. Went for a walk on the shoreline before and after dinner, but the magnificent blue sky had gone and it was drizzling with rain. Tomorrow is the summer solstice and the longest day of the year. We are moving further north in the country as well and so the hours of "darkness" will be down to 2. Sunset at 12.30am and sunrise at 2.30am. Might try to stay up and catch it - if it isn't cloudy that is.
