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.

... I'm sure by now, that you have come to realise that 'foss' is the Icelandic word for waterfall.
The weather has been slowly but surely worsening as the day has progressed. By the time we leave the waterfall, it is decidedly cooler and windier and before too long, the rain starts coming down, rather spoiling the scenic route to Egilsstadir and the Hotel Eyvindara. Tonight is the first time we have been serenaded before our evening meal!

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.

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 ...
... to the control tower to pay landing fees and file the flight plan, we were off again two hours after landing.
It was a really smooth flight, with the sun shining above us and very little in the way of headwinds. We had radar coverage all the way, another change from four years ago - the radio upgrades were worth doing….. However we did lose radio coverage for a short time approaching Iceland, so thanks to the crew of MKI for their relay.
... to hold the fort in the car. Usually i take a nap but don’t tell my lot that or they might find a replacement for me.A tour to the Ice cave called Lofthellir was next on the agenda. Would you believe it, the day we’d arranged to do this dawned brilliantly bright and sunny. Summer had arrived in Iceland and what were we about to do, go down underground into an ice cave. Talk about bad planing. We should have been doing this on one of those bleak, ...
... The country uses no fossil fuel at all but relies on hydro and thermal energy to power their every day needs. It is cheap as chips and enticed an Italian aluminium smelter to set up shop in Iceland. The deal they were getting on the cost of electricity was embarrassingly low and has only recently become public, annoying the general public and increasing their dislike of politicians in general. Geo-thermal electricity could become an export ...
