11 April 2014: Another couple hundred kilometers of snow-painted road laid ahead of us today. Although, there were some moments of reprieve from the weather as well.

This guesthouse was the bottom floor of a large house. Very clean guesthouse with a nice view, comfortable beds, and a great living room with heated floors, small communal kitchen and dining nook. The owner also sells a selection of locally made Icelandic wool items at reasonable prices. Our cost for a triple with linens was 10000isk
