    August 12, 2019 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    Der Wind steigert sich Tag um Tag. Heute ist es wirklich so heftig, das wir keine Touren machen können. Das heißt aber für uns Mädels hier: wir haben alle einen Tag frei :)
    Um uns ein bisschen nützlich zu machen verbinden wir Großeinkauf beim Supermarkt Bónus mit einer Sightseeing-Runde. Wir fahren bis nach Stykkishólmur und kommen auf dem Weg an einem der berühmtesten Berge Islands vorbei. Dem Kirkjufell (Kirchberg), der den Namen durch die kirchturmartigen Form erhalten hat.
    Während der einstündigen Fahrt kommen wir aber noch an zahlreichen weiteren Wasserfällen und Aussichtspunkten vorbei.
    Den Nachmittag nutze ich um zu entspannen und zu lesen.

    Nächstes Ziel war Stykkisholmur, eine kleine Stadt mit einem Hafen und einer kleinen Insel, die auf hohen Steinfelsen gewachsen ist. Auf der Insel sind wir dann eine Runde lang spaziert und anschließend in einem schönen kleinen Café eingekehrt.Read more

    A short interlude to talk about the weather we've been experiencing during our trip. As you've seen, we've pretty much seen the lot from high winds to snow and frost with pretty much everything in between. Perhaps not as much sun as we'd have preferred but it has been with us at times.

    Today was undoubtedly the wettest experience so far. So how have we got on coping with what, at times, has been hours of rain?

    Clothing-wise it's been fine even in low temperatures. One of our followers has referenced the saying that "there is no such thing as the wrong weather, only the wrong clothes" and that has definitely been our experience. When we say we've been getting wet that hasn't been our delicate bodies but our outer layers and equipment. At no point have we really felt the cold nor got truly deep-down soaked. We've really been quite warm and snug at times.

    We have both commented on how well our equipment has survived our adventures and, as you can see in the photo taken today, our cameras have been well and truly soaked at times. The biggest problem has been keeping the lens free of rain droplets and this has been a real nuisance, especially when we're also battered by the wind. We are using cameras with good weather sealing though so in case you're thinking of taking your camera into the shower with you, just check your instruction book first!

    What we can say about photography in the conditions we've experienced at times, is you can only take it for so long. Eventually all your microfibre cloths are wet and you simply crave coffee and cake ... and that's how we finished today.

    Comfort Food

    February 16, 2018 in Iceland ⋅ ☁️ 0 °C

    Oooooohh! That's Tony's description of the chocolate cake we both had to end our meal this evening. We have four nights left and we are once again in a hotel rather than B&B which is a nice way to finish. Don't get us wrong, all the places we've stayed have been great and in all cases we've been made to feel extremely welcome.

    So, having spoiled ourselves we have discussed what we'll be doing tomorrow and now it's time to finish for the day. What will tomorrow bring? .... we'll tell you tomorrow night.
