Geothermal spots, bathing and the city of the North

We stayed a bit more in the same area, and visited Myvatn lake and the geothermal spots at Hverarond, before we continued to visit the biggest city of the North, Akureyri.

Summer knitting [and crochet]

And for a small break from the road trip story, the past month I have been doing some relax knitting - and that before I found a new obsession, which I will reveal soon!

More Highlands and whale watching

We were now in the North-East of Iceland and moving through lands that looked like rocky deserts. We had the most fascinating driving - it really felt like we were in some kind of James Bond movie, hiked in the snow, crossed at least 3 big rivers, met fellow travellers that faced the harsh nature as we did.

True wisdom comes to each of us 
when we realize how little we understand 
about life, ourselves, & the world around us.
