My first stop was at Hverir,
Stopped at the very beautiful Godafoss waterfall for some more long exposure shots. there are many amazing waterfalls here in Iceland, but Godafoss was possibly my favourite as you could get quite close to it and really got a sense of the power and size. Don't go too close though if you have a fear of heights!
The drive onwards towards Akureyri was very pleasant and got spectacular as you crest the hill and look down towards the town, which sits on the end of the Eyjafjordur fjord. The opposite side looked very nice indeed with large snow capped mountains looming out of the fjord.
Found my hotel easily enough and have basically just been watching more of the world cup. Akureyri seems like a very pleasant town. I had a nice late afternoon snack at a woodfire pizza place. Didn't notice the name, but it was very nice pizza!
Long drive tomorrow to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Not sure i'll have much to report but will do so if anything interesting happens.
