Our campsite for the evening
🙁 today we say goodbye to one of our group, dropping them at the docks and airport. One couple are going horse riding whilst everyone else is sightseeing.
Before anyone leaves we visit Pingvellir where the tectonic plates are moving apart and where the first parliament was formed.
Our over night stop had a little bit of earth movement last night.
Some in our group felt the earth move last night exciting
Making our way south to the golden circle, boiling some eggs in the geothermal pools, having some fun with a smooth shallow water crossing and some more stunning scenery.
Late start from Akureyri to allow everyone time to look around, then we call at the christmas shop, before heading up the valley to Laugarfell, then on to Hveravellir in the interior.
