We have now been traveling since Saturday morning and almost completely without an Internet connection until now. It is so wonderful for everybody to be a little bit disconnected, but feeling so connected to this beautiful land.
On Saturday we headed to the South of Iceland, exploring Þingvellir and Eyjafjallajökull area. We had planned on staying at a community hall but it had been double booked so Ásta, Alexandra's host mom and relative offered us to stay at her house, with most of the group staying in 2 campers outside. Ashley made her wonderful chicken soup and Ásta had a table full of home made deserts for everybody. What a treat!
On Saturday we took the ferry over to the Westman Island - checked into Hreiðrið Guesthouse and went to Herjólfsdalur Valley, Stórhöfði and Eldfell volcano that erupted in 1973 before we went swimming. The next day we went back to the mainland, visited Gullfoss and Geysir, had a picnic in the middle of nowhere and went across the highlands, on Kjölur.....
Fantastic wheather.....incredible sights..... fantabulous group..... More tomorrow plus pics!
