We stopped a few times for photos. Had a lovely lunch at a country café. The food here (actually everything here) is very expensive, I had a veg dish with coconut curry sauce & a hot chocolate and it was NZD37. I feel like I’m haemorrhaging money.
It is quite strange retracing our steps from the tour - the first time we passed everything was covered in snow and the landscape is almost unrecognisable this time with amazing colours. Muted colours, but lovely tones of green, brown and gold.
In times past Icelanders built houses into the land, there are still a few of these structures around but they are mainly used to house the animals now.
I haven't mentioned the churches yet; they are very cute and all made from the same cookie cutter design (Reykjavik being the exception).
It is said that being a tourist is hard work - being a photographic tourist is even more so. We are usually out before first light photographing and then travelling or more photographing during the day. Usually we manage a short break during the day (not today though); it might be 30 minutes or 90 minutes then out again for last and it’s not dark until around 8.00-8.30pm. Then its race back for dinner. Back in my room I have to download images from the day, back them up and then catch up on emails, blogs etc. So that is why I am still bashing the keyboard at 11.30 at night. Not moaning - just explaining why I am struggling to keep this up to date :-)
