Iceland 2016: Through Thick and Thin

Thursday, May 26, 2016

With a ferry ride scheduled for 1500 (3:00 PM for us non-military types), we have the whole morning ahead of us.  We decide to pack inside one car and head back down the Snæfellsnes Peninsula.  443 more words

Day 55 . 22nd August, Patreksfjörður and Rauðasandur, Iceland (Vestfirðir or West Fjords)

From Stykkishólmur I took the ferry to Barðastrandarvegur.  I had intended to next take a short journey to the north-east, to the area around Flókalundur, where there may have been good views.  657 more words
