... Today is a travel day. We do take a side trip to the town of Seydisfjordur which is a terminus for the ferry heading to the Faroe Islands and Denmark. Our guide has arranged for us to have hot chocolate at the local hotel. It's a pleasant town. The route back to the hotel is quite steep and we encounter heavy fog most of the way.

... No.1 ring to Egilsstadir. I still try to keep it smooth and not get excited.
