We Got Into Hot Water in the Westfjords

... Christian times. It is beautifully curated, interpreted and presented. The National Museum is on a grand scale and tells the history of Iceland from the earliest settlers through to the current time. It really brought home the social and religious turbulence in Icelandic history, reminding one of Lord Acton's aphorism: 'Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely'. As an example of the brutal nature of Icelandic justice, a thief was branded on the forehead for ...

Now back to Patreksfjordur, where we stop for a bit of whale watching in the fjord. Then up the 63 across the mountains, where the road returns to gravel all the way to Pingeyri. No matter the sun is still shining and the views are great.
