Highlights.

 

In such a short time three days really as Sunday I was travelling home, I managed to see a lot. I had to drive a lot around 1400kms, and I hardly slept as much to pack in the trip with sights as with excitement that I was in Iceland!!

 

The landmarks I visited, I had to enjoy them as they were regardless of the weather, given more time I would have visited some places several times waiting for the best light. I travelled at the end May meaning almost twenty four hours of light, the midnight sun was almost upon Iceland. This meant I could get around and walk safely without torches, though one occassion at the crashed DC plane was quite dark and I started imagining crevices and cliffs that I don't think were there but could have been, next time i'll bring a head torch.
