... at the last one (Jokulsarlon) was there nice was blue ice (and seals). Another nice day sight- seeing with clear blue skies again. Lucky.

The coastal strip of land is quite narrow and it’s only on this that any farming can be done. After the coastal strip of land you are usually faced with a vertical lava wall and then you are into the lava fields although some of the lava fields do flow down some of the valleys ...

... around on the property. As it was nearly 9pm, we headed in to Hofn about 30km away to find dinner as grocery stores in the area close early. Kara grabbed a burger and I grabbed two Icelandic hot dogs to go and we were back to the accommodations.

At another interval we were crossing a large area of volcanic sand near the ocean and we could see a sandstorm at the cliffs and at the ...

Ingolfshodi and Skaftafell

Another day of superlatives, including the elements which were superlatively windy. We really played tourist today and toured into an outer planet wasteland on the back of an old hay truck at Ingolfshodi, driven by a local farmer. He jokingly advertises that his price includes Icelandic weather and that it will be a great chance to test out your vortex jackets! Except it was no joke. We travelled across black volcanic sands into a wind ...
