Iceland

Iceland

I had been planning to travel to Iceland for a long time, but my previous attempts failed because I could no longer book a hotel at every point on my itinerary. So this time around I booked well in advance, but even so I couldn't stay in every hotel of my choice. Unfortunately, as on many recent trips I had a lot of rain. Indeed, locals told me that the summer of 2018 was one of the wettest in recent history. Even so, I had a great time and I'm already planning a second trip. The photos here are uncategorized and were taken across Iceland.

Hverfjall
I hiked the rim of the Hverfjall crater. It was extremely windy and I had great difficulty keeping on my feet.
