    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.

    Drove into a fishing village who's claim to fame is lots of granite eggs in the shape and colour the native species of birds. Made in China.

    I was as crook as Rookwood so didn't enjoy the show too much. Unfortunately word got around and I had all the old biddies putting their hands on my forehead and cheek ...

    ... temperature is usually around 31C, according to L who swims a lot. Then the hot tubs are 38 to 41C and D says they are great to slip down into after braving the elements between the shower room and the tub. It’s a rule that you must have a shower and wash yourself properly before you enter any of the pools. So you come out of a heated room into 2C completely wet, hair and all, so you can see why that hot water is so lovely to slip into. Well, I ...

    ... outside to continued overcast skies, it was an easy decision to stay on for another day, and take the time to catch up after a busy yesterday. The first concern was whether the hotel had room – answer no. The receptionist was very helpful in guiding where not to stay and recommended the Guesthouse we had stayed in back in 2011; fortunately, they had a room. It was an easy walk downhill and not too far to the Guesthouse, which has been ...

    ... again do battle with the now familiar flies. The sky is turning a nasty grey colour and I think it will probably rain before not too long, so I turn down offers to drop me a little way along the road in favour of waiting to see if anyone is going the whole way to Egilsstadir. I dont want to get stuck in the road somewhere if the heavens are going to open up, at least near Reykjahlid there is a campsite I can go to as plan B.
