Mainly a driving day today getting us from central Northern Iceland to the North East. We didn't do a great deal of sightseeing, saw an ancient rock fortress; a rock sticking out of the ocean; another volcano crater; and, of course, another waterfall (did I mention that there are plenty of waterfalls in Iceland)
The fortress was at the end of a dirt road, great view from the top, then onto the rock, again along a dirt road. I'm sure there was some story about the rock but don't really have a clue - we probably could have missed this one, especially because I had to endure Brad's whinging about travelling on the rough roads. The volcano crater meant climbing lots of steps (again) but at least it was a easy staircase.
(I'm running a few days behind in my blog so the next few entries may be posted all at once when we get back to Germany- leave on the car ferry in the morning and won't really have WiFi until Sunday)Read more
