    Its all about fish...

    August 12, 2017 in Iceland ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    Ich habe eine wirklich schöne Zeit bei meinem isländischen Couchsurfer Runar gehabt. Wir haben Möhrengemüse mit Apfelmus gegessen, Bier getrunken und viel gequatscht. Heute morgen ging es dann weiter nach Dalvik zum Fischfestival. Ich hab mich also zum trampen an die Straße gestellt und werde das erste Stück von einen netten Busfahrer mitgenommen. Alle Fahrgäste mussten bezahlen, nur ich nicht & dann hat er noch nen extra Stopp für mich eingelegt, damit ich weiter nach Dalvik trampen konnte 😊 2 Sekunden und das nächste Auto hält. Musiker auf dem Weg nach Dalvik. Und hier...Fischsuppe, Eis, Cola, frischer Backfisch mit Kartoffelauflauf, frische Garnelen, Schoki, Kaffee, Kuchen, indischer Currylachs, gegrillte Fischfilets, lachsbrote, Fischburger uvm. Alles high Quality, alles Fangfrisch nirgens lange anstehen und das Beste, ALLES UMSONST!!! INKLUSIVE Bands, Fischausstellung und Schiffbesichtigung bei allerschönstem Sonnenwetter. WAHNSINN 🤗
    Also wenn ihr Morgen nix von mir hört, dann bin ich wohl geplatzt.

    Abends dann ein großes Konzert mit anscheinend sehr bekannten isländischen Musikern & danach, bei eiskalten Silvestertemperaturen ein wirklich tolles Feuerwerk!

    FISKIDAGINN - GREAT

    Ever had a beer bath????

    September 6, 2017 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    Icecream for morning smoko at a dairy, Holtsel farm, that has value added with icecream
    Lunch with the cows at Kaffi Ku cafe is in a glassed area over the fully mechanised dairy. The cows walk themselves into the milking "robot" when they feel full. There was also a robot that swept the hay etc off the floor. Their milk is sold on but use and sell meat from bull calves.

    Some farms just grow grass and bale to sell. No other enterprise
    Hot springs most places - little towns around that as "free energy"
    Bring sheep down from mountains in first 2 weeks of Sept as it may start snowing. The 5th today and feels like it
    26000 cows in Iceland all Icelandic breed as not allowed to import due to disease. Divided opinion as this will only lead to inbreeding. Some want to keep the breed pure, others see it as necessary
    Saw some belted galloway cows, was controversial at first but have adapted well.

    Kaldi micro brewery with much value adding. Used to be fishermen but injury stopped that. Decided to brew so studied in Germany but then realised best brewing was in Czechoslovakia so studied there. All their gear and barley comes from there too- not enough barley grown consistently in Iceland to use local barley. They have a restaurant AND beer spa!! Yes, they have a bath with 15% "young beer" in water and nice smelly oils. Plus beer bath salts and other beauty products. Very clever
    Look around Akureyri. 19000 people in Akureyri, 5th largest town by population
    walked through the botanical gardens. There airport runway juts right into the causeway nearly joining the road!!
