Epic Iceland 2015, Day 18 – Saturday, August 8th

Day 18 pics here.


Mostly overcast but some sun peeking through.

If I’ve figured right, I’ll be staying at the Cabin Hotel again tonight (wifi, please!) with the group, then going to my last hotel tomorrow (Skjaldbreid). Rolling suitcase, ftw. I suppose.

Drive into and picture stop at Holaholar (crater).

***

Djupalanssandur for hike and pictures.

***

Little bits of sun. Not windy. Good beach hike. Really need to stop picking up rocks and stones.

***

Next up, hike through the lava fields at Hellnar to Arnastapi [then lunch at a cafe, then brief easy hike by Arnastapi].

***

Good hikes. Weather seems to be clearing up [it rained on the drive to Borgarnes, so, no so much?]. Overcast but sunny.

***

Picture stop. Snaefellsjokull mostly clear of clouds. On way back to Reykjavik through Borgarnes (third time for me–hello, faithful N1 station).

***

Ah ha! I’m not a dummy. Thought there was something simmering between our guide and driver. Yup. Love connection made. Adorbs.

***

Checked into Hotel Cabin where despite the notice in the elevator the wifi might be working. I’m only here one night, so it’s not super horrible if it doesn’t. But so far okay.

Tonight is just hanging back and looking into what I plan on doing with my days in Reykjavik besides relocating hotels and getting my Viking portrait done.
