Iceland – continued

Back in Reykjavik and leaving for Lisbon tomorrow. Another great day weather wise, blue sky all week although the north winds tend to be a bit cool. Saw some amazing natural phenomena listed below.

Next one was Skogafloss waterfall – 60 m high and 25m wide. Along side this waterfall is a stairway, 60 metres high and consisting of 384 steel steps and 36 gravel ones at the start all the way to the top, and further waterfalls. Kay and I did climb for the view.

Next along the road was the Myrdalsjokull glacier, a large one but has retreated several hundred metres since 2000.

Strokkur Geysir erupting in front of dozens of tourists, up to 70-100 metres every 5 minutes or so. Smell of Sulphur in the air.

Gullfoss waterfall. One if not the most spectular and loudest waterfall in Iceland. Amazing amount of water going over the falls. Despite the sunshine very cold wind.

That’s it. Next stop Lisbon. See you then
