        ... instantly, the scenery is perfect and the whales swimming by just topped it all off. Not to forget, the inside of the cottage was decorated very nicely and well-equipped with a full kitchen and a big screen tv. The hot tub on the porch too is also amazing. We went for a nice long soak before having some nachos and cheese for dinner (not an icelandic meal in the slightest).

        ... City Hostel, which is a little out of town next to the campsite but I was just glad of the opportunity to sleep in a proper bed that night and be indoors.

        ... hiking trails and human litter will eventually cause changes. In fact, at most of these really dangerous areas, you can literally walk to the very edge of a waterfall such as Dettifoss with no handrails and very few signs saying “watch out” for obvious danger. I guess that also illustrates the difference in our risk-centered approach to things in the US and Europe’s philosophy of letting personal common sense apply.
