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.

... around so it was not a problem. The craters were caused by hot steam erupting the earth away leaving a crater-like shape -- just no lava going on. The fresh mowing made the area resemble parts of a golf course fairway. Adding the volcano cones immediately made me recall my nemesis of putt-putt mini-golf, the volcano-shaped hole.
From there we went clockwise around Lake Myvatn to pick up the Ring Road. On the north side of the lake we saw what they meant about midges. What I ...
... keep the moisture off of the camera. Again don’t know that for a fact this is just this writers’ speculation.
We did actually do some sightseeing today. We actually drove from the southeast corner of Iceland to the north east corner of Iceland. We visited (drove through) several small fishing towns. The first one and definitely the best was Djupivogur. There was nothing really remarkable about it ...
