... Circle tour, heading back in the direction from which we came yesterday. We pass through a village that has more hot springs than any other in Iceland. The earth's crust is so thin here, only single storey buildings are erected and they don't have any cellars. Kristberg tells us all about the lakes, rivers and mountains as we pass by including all their unpronounceable names. It's a fascinating tale all the same.

I spent the rest of the evening resting and making up for lost ...
... the geyser but turned around to realize that a massive storm was coming toward us. The rain and wind was so strong you could hardly walk, and then minutes later blue skies. I guess it's very typical for spring time in Iceland, you have to be prepared for all conditions. Returned back to hotel the same way we came. The inn keeper is a nice old man, who cooked us a tasty vegetarian meal while we listened to ...
