The South Coast of Iceland
The final days of my trip are in Iceland. I chose to go along the south coast. I now know why Iceland was selected by Olympus as the location to showcase the camera that I use. It is very well suited to this environment, particularly the weather sealing. It has been raining lots. The plane, the long walk involved horizontal sleet/rain with gale force winds (20m/s... not sure what that is in mph but seems like a lot... I could figure it out but I'm lazy)
I honestly can't pronounce any of the names in Icelandic. I am currently near a town called Hofn (it is pronounce Hup). This is an easy one, it is short. I cannot figure out how to pronounce anything.
I got much farther than my last trip because I didn't just stay in Rekyavik but decided to try to get as far along the coast as possible to ensure I got to the iceberg lagoon at Jokulsarlon (missing a bunch of accents). What I hadn't counted on is the rain. Clouds definitely limit you ability to see these massive glaciers, but I can see enough. It is truly amazing because everywhere is unbelievably gorgeous. Only really another day before I start coming back to Canada. It will be a long trip on Monday but the entire journey has been phenomenal.
