Hitchhike to Hofn

... they offer to take me to Hofn with them.

The women are actually all work colleagues who have decided to come away to Iceland for a holiday together for about a week, driving around the ring road in their mobile home, which is comfortably furnished but not really ideal for driving in today's extremely blustery conditions. Driving around the roads that follow the fjord edges, the wind gets dangerously strong, and I think some of us are a little concerned that the ...

... one, and includes a part towards the end where the road, which has by now turned into an unsealed gravel track, curves around the edge of a cliff with a drop to the left. This doesnt seem to bother the driver at all who whizzes around it without stopping her conversation at all - clearly is used to making this journey every day.

I had heard also about a trail which leads up ...

... bottom of 1000-meter peaks with 70 degree slopes. One town feature is a memorial to an avalanche that destroyed a factory.

We walked virtually the entire town, which was celebrating a local festival that involved each neighborhood displaying their colors and eating a lot of food at the local school. We didn’t intrude as it would be pretty obvious we weren’t from around here!

Tomorrow, off to the wild north lands of waterfalls, mudpots, and more amazing ...

... all of the day until we got to our hotel at about 4.30pm - and then the sun came out.

Today is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. We are going to try to stay up to watch the sun set here. We are up near the arctic circle and the sun goes 'down' for only two hours and so it never really gets dark. Most of the hotels have pretty good blackout curtains though and we have managed to sleep OK most nights.
