    This hostel is really out in the middle of nowhere, miles down a dirt road. Incredibly isolated, but worth the drive. Amazingly beautiful setting in the open open field near the confluence of two rivers flowing to the sea. Best thing here is riding the Icelandic horses. Small rooms, no sink in the room. No water pressure. Don't plan a shower here! We enjoyed the European women who were spending a week riding.

    At last, our hostel!

    ... it as best he could but was none too sure about its enduring qualities.D settled for getting one 2nd hand tyre back in Eglisstadir, the Michelin tyres the same as we have on the car are twice the price here that they are in much of western Europe. While I sat in the car my lot enjoyed some nice soaks in the hot tub at the local swimming pool. This is a very popular pastime in Iceland with even the smallest of towns having a pool and at least one hot tub. ...

    ... the only point of interest below was the Clair Oil Field rigs and associated vessels. There’s lots of activity in the West Shetland Basin now that the East Basin is becoming less productive.

    We were able to get up to a reasonable height for the duration of the 1hr 45min journey. It is always a relief to see the fringes of the land you are visiting, and the south easterly part of the Faroe Islands slowly appeared out the grey, ...

    ... First a helmut and special boots with studs were issued, good job I wasn’t needing them, don’t think they had any in my size, nor a helmut that would fit over my ears. after that we all climbed onto the mini bus, one of those real Icelandic ones with big wheels. We had the privilege of having 2 guides for the day, the diver guide whose name was the Icelandic version of Steve L thinks, and another younger fellow who is learning to be a guide for this ...

    Another Waterfall

    ... fi. I appear to be the only person here, apart from a young guy from New York who seems nice and talkative.

    After having a small lunch I go for a walk, following a path I read about which leads to yet another waterfall. Initially it is quite featureless and follows the road that goes out to Seydisfjordur, but soon takes a turn into a gravel dirt road past a farm (where I was greeted by a barking dog, which soon scarpered after half-heartedly threw a small stone in ...

    ... a larger, more awesome view. If I were a geologist, this would certainly be heaven as the evidence of large scale world-building mechanisms are on display in abundance. The Ring Road in the southeast hugs the shoreline and our elevations were under constant change, ranging from about sea level to more than 500 meters above sea level. It is not uncommon to encounter signs showing a 10% or 12% grade and have those grades go on for kilometers at a time. In one particularly ...
