In Back to the Future, Doc sets the clock in the DeLorean to a day 25 years in the future. Today (2010, 6th July) is that day.Today was a really amazing day. It was very sunny, and we visited Ísafjörður, a city that stole our hearts.
Holmavík's Witchcraft Museum, Reykjanes
From Holmavík we drove to Reykjanes... Where we did not find Reykjanes' old pool... We just walked around for a while, then we went back to the car. Fueled again (it had been a longer drive than expected!)... This N1 station only offered gas, no food or anything else. No skýr, no market, not handcrafts. A boring stop, if not for the views!
Way to Ísafjörður
Parked in front of the information centre, where parking is free (which happens almost everywhere, in spite of what our travel guide explained). Walked around for a while, before having a look at the local Eymundsson bookstore, which had absorbed the old local bookshop. Nothing interesting, the same books we saw at Akureyri. But beside it we found a wonderful "store", mix of cafe and wool and handcrafts. We had a coffee with a rhubarb pie, very similar to my æblekage.
End of the day at Þinfeyri
Went to sleep, expecting another sunny day tomorrow!
