We've come to the end of our second week - travelling clockwise round Iceland.
Tomorrow morning we will set off to the south coast - to Hofn. Still new territory for us as we've never been further east than Vik on the south coast. So there is still a lot more for us to discover. Like the flamin' reindeer.
One thing I meant to Google - do horses do damage when they kick the shit out of each other. We have horses behind the cottage - fenced in with electric wire. I don't think they like it and they all seem a little prickly.
Oh and I nearly forgot to mention - we saw a bloody Ptarmigan today. In a field. Pootling along. Minding its own business. Without a care in the world. Miles away from that bloody island that is supposedly teeming with them.
Into the middle bit...
Today we drove into the highlands - to the ranger station below Snaefell. Great drive again - this time on a pretty decent tarmac road for much of the distance.
After a scout round up there, taking in the views of the clouds on top of the peak and the glacier behind, we headed out to yet another fjord - Seydisfjordur.
The town there is really quite pretty. And when we arrived there was someone making pancakes in a car park and about two minutes later 100 people in costume, banging drums with red blobs on their foreheads showed up. Expecting pancakes I think. All a little odd tbh.
