      A busy couple of days. We spent yesterday travelling along the southern coast of Iceland before turning inland and heading up into the mountains. The scenery was typically dramatic and surreal and clearly shaped by years of volcanic eruptions but was terribly beautiful in a rugged and wild way. There were mountain ranges (which I nicknamed the accordion ranges) which went on for miles and were strips of mountains one behind the other where you could see ...

      ... surprised to find the hotel reception and restaurant situated behind a barn on a working farm, in a cowshed along with the milking parlour!! Our room was actually a very modern pine panelled 'cabin' (in a block) set in trees on the other side of the road. We had dinner in the popular Cowshed restaurant - my vegetarian platter was a huge mix of different food, which almost warrants a separate blog entry of its ...

      ... a north-flowing river that drains Vatnajokull, the largest glacier in Iceland at 8000 sq km and 13% of Ireland's land area.

      ... seemed to go quite quickly. Since we arrived early, we dropped our bags at Hotel Laxa (nice modern place but out in the country so you need a car), The desk was very helpful with a local map and some highlights to take in. We skipped the ones down by Lake Myvatn as we had left our anti-midge head nets in the bags. Our first stop was the lava fields at Dimmuborgir where we did an hour loop hike.
