Iceland Day 9: Home

We’ll by the time this is posted I’ll be home again. Today I head home. As what is becoming the norm, I’m not going to talk much about my day and more reflect on the trip as a whole. Though today I did wake up feeling a bit worse than yesterday, the sore throat persists…

Iceland Day 8: Skaftafell

The previous night before going to bed I checked the weather for Skaftafell. I didn’t want to do another Hornbjarg in heavy rain. I decided this time I would let the weather decide. If I didn’t go I would spend the day around Reykjavik for the cultural day. The weather report was grim, high winds…

Iceland Day 7: Hitchhiking

Iceland Day 6: Hornbjarg

Iceland Day 4: Reykjavik

Today I elected to start off at a slower pace, taking my time to get up and get started. I knew today would be long. I have a 5pm flight to Ísafjörður (pronounced kind of likes Eeces – fe yorder). That leaves me with pretty much the entire day to walk around Reykjavik and get…

Iceland Day 3: Golden

After a good night’s sleep and some reflection, yesterday doesn’t seem quite as bad. I’m thankful that I didn’t bring this bag with me to China, it would have been much worse trying to find a quality bag of the right size out there, and here I just have 4 hotels in 2 cities. I…
