      Iceland Day Trip III

      We saw a lot of the big sites in Iceland in our first three days and the next main town in Iceland was four hours by driving. Up until this point the ring road has followed the coast and been somewhat easy driving. The road conditions were pretty good although the weather was not. We talked to some people in our hostel the night before that …

      ... dirt walls, floor & turf ceilings are still in place from the 1840's. After reading the novel Burial Rites recently this was excellent to have a glimpse of how the life would have been to live in a dark, cold, dirty place like this. A poor farmhouse would have been even more sparse & crowded. Lunch stop in Akureyri, the second biggest town in Iceland with 17,693 so small ...

      ... in the 9th century. This area has been heated geochemically since the late 1970’s.

      We docked right on schedule this morning. We set our clocks back an hour so we got up early and walked on the ship’s jogging track for 3 miles before our excursion. It was 49 degrees, misting and foggy so our confidence in the weather forecast, 70 degrees and sunny, was low. We shouldn’t ...

      ... covered with thick wads of turf which provides excellent insulation. Our next stop was the Christmas Shop, decorations everywhere. A small fortune was pumped into the Icelandic economy here. We departed company with our driver at the Botanical Gardens, walked through them and then into town where we came into a very scenic mall. Of course we had to try the Polar Beer! Temp today was 22 degrees Celsius. The traffic lights display a ...
