Final day of my weekend or how can a weekend have five days. Even the best trip ends at some point in time. And if you were wondering why my weekend had so many days, you may want to know how I count to five. Also, today I met François, I investigated a Fjord, encountered a lot of rain and learned to correctly park my car when it is windy.
Diamonds are forever – are they not? Well, we see to this a little later. That day I was traveling further East to see glaciers like Jökulsárlón or Svínafellsjökull and, as you already have guessed, Diamond beach.
It sounds like the subtitle of a Kingsmen movie: The Golden Circle. However, it is obviously also a roundtrip to the most important and accessible sights in South Iceland. And today, I was going to see a couple of the golden circle highlights: The Geysir Geothermal Area, Gullfoss and Kerið were on my list. With hundreds of buses on the roads, access to them would turn out to be not as easy as I thought.
‘Water Everywhere’ or ‘Falls and Beaches’ – both could have been titles of this blog entry. However, falls carry water and beaches are usually separating land from water, and then there was this additional water in the air… so it became ‘Water Everywhere’.
Today I was going to see a couple of the highlights of the south coast of Iceland: Seljalandsfoss, Skogafoss, Vik, and the DC3 plane wreck were on my list. But I also visited Reynisfjara Beach and the Dyrhólaey Lighthouse – or so I planned.
