Last week, Ruthie and I headed to Iceland for a quick Easter break. It was the first time that either of us had been there, despite having both dreamed about going for years. The weather was characteristically cold, windy and moody (including snow, rain, 100km/h winds and big sunshine all within an hour) but fun was had by all. In order to make the most of our limited time, we rented a car after one day in Reykjavik and headed up north, first to Akureyri (the second biggest city on the island) and then lake Myvatn. Our plans of going whale watching in Husavik were foiled by the high winds, but the views across the fjords made up for it. Finally, on the last evening, I gave a very nice slideshow at the Icelandic Alpine Club. All I can say is that I really wish to be back soon!
In the meantime, enjoy a selection of my images from the trip!
