Europe | Iceland – Iceland: Day 9

Europe | Iceland – Iceland: Day 9

A little worried that I am leaving some damn good weather behind I board the bus to Egilsstadir.

I’m afraid you’re going to have to wait for details of the bus trip just a little longer. I wrote my notes in my guide book that I don’t have with me at the moment.

I was going to stop and camp at Egilsstadir but instead I scammed a shower at the camp site and headed out at around 3pm. Only did about 25km but it was mostly uphill climbing out of the town. Snow covered peaks all around below blue skied full of billowing clouds. As the road peaked there were beautiful long views down to Jukulsa a Dal on my right and an unnamed river on my left. I camped next to the road by a bridge that crosses a small stream down from a little waterfall with its resident duck. I share my pasta with it fearing it was going to explode it ate so much but it’s still hungry. Right now it’s ferreting around in my garbage – the thing’ll be in the tent with me next.
