Iceland's National Day

A travel blog entry by jakesnorri2014

... guy too. He even posed for a picture like he was crushing Mike's head by request.

It rained all day.

I decided that I wanted to go to the Hólavallagarđur Cemetery to see the graves of Sigurđur Thorlacius Eggerz, Petúr Friđriksson Eggerz, and Petúr Petúrsson Eggerz and pay my respects. I looked up a map of where the cemetery was located on my computer and marked it on a paper map from the guesthouse and took off by myself to find it. I have never read ...

Day 1: Under, over, and through

Two days in Iceland

A travel blog entry by mtrm


... see tonight.
On Tuesday, my last day in Iceland, (actually only half a day), I was not in hurry. I did not have to get up in the morning, so I slept long hours, packed up my stuff to leave the hostel and headed to the city bus to bring me to the airport in Keflavik. My plane to Berlin took off exactly at 3.25 pm local time. For a long time I had still opportunity to watch the beautiful Icelandic landscape below us, then the waters of the ocean, however that moment I ...
