The day started in Husavík, with a wonderful breakfast: toasts and marinated herring. I just love marinated herring since I was in Germany... But the best comes from Denmark, mind you. After a shower and shave we went for some local shopping. We bought jam for our friends in Barcelona. After this chores, we wanted to visit the Phallological Museum in Husavík. We couldn't... as usual in Iceland, most museums and shops start working at 10 or 11... The museum started at 12. D'oh!
To Akureyri and Goðafoss
They were named Goðafoss around AD1100, when the Alþing (the Icelandic gathering of leaders and chieftains) decided to convert Iceland into a Christian nation. The lawmaker at the time decided to convert, but allowing current pagan worshippers to keep doing so in the privacy of their houses. Upon returning to his home after the gathering, he picked his pagan idols and threw them down the falls, hence God's waterfalls.
