Fri, 6.17. 2016 – Haukadalur

One sentence: Driving through Iceland gives me a sense of the variety of the Iceland roads & scenery; We hit the top spots of the Golden Circle (Thingvellir, Geyser, Gulfoss).

– 11a. Set out of Reykjavik by rental car to Hafnarjordur & drove through the gravel road of Reykjanesfólkvangur. A remarkable landscape that could be painted by watercolors.
– 1p. Stop to enjoy the National Holiday of Iceland in Selfoss. A fun family holiday festival with cotton candy and the hokey pokey.
– 3p. Thingvellir National Park – UNESCO Heritage Site.
– 6p. Found our Skjol hostel in the middle of nowhere Iceland – how liberating! It has a nine-room hostel and a camp ground.
– 7p. Pizza & beer dinner at the hostel restaurant. The owner is incredibly kind and generous.
– 9p. Geyser & Gulfoss Waterfall. It was still completely light out and significantly less tourists then there would be in the afternoons. Both were a short 5-10 minute away from our hostel.
– 11p. In the hostel restaurant editing photos and meeting two nice campers from Canada who have traveled around the whole island. There is going to be a huge football game tomorrow night and we plan to meet up then.
I have an odd sense of time here in Iceland. I am most aware of my body’s sleeping cycle being dependent on the sunrise and sunset of each day. But, here and now, there is a short period of time in which the sun is down. I naturally wake up at 6a and rest at midnight. I oddly feel rejuvenated and ready for the day ahead. I would take 6a yoga class everyday, if I felt this rested!
