August 1



Today was all about driving as we had to get from Myvatn in the northeast all the way to just before Reykjavik. We were travelling along bleak mountains in relatively good weather. We passed by Akureyri, the second largest city in Iceland but all I remember is seeing the first traffic lamp in six days. It was already past noon when we reached Hvitserkur, an interesting rock formation by the sea. We climbed down to the sea for a better view.

After a couple more hours of driving, for some kilometers on a really rough road we arrived at Hraunfossar, a waterfall completely different than all the others we have seen before as the water flows down from a lava field in several streams around 100m wide and not in a single large one. The water had an unusual light blue color. Now we only had 150km left and a tunnel aunder the sea to cross to get to our final accommodation.
