Iceland, Day Five

We are back already, but the last couple days were pretty hectic, so I postponed the blog. But here we are!

On Thursday morning, we woke up in Egilsstaðir and drove to Borgarfjörður eystri to see puffins, and friends, it was so cool. They were in their little burrows on the hillside, and they even had a building for viewing them.

All of Iceland was gorgeous, but this one was something special.

Then we jumped in the car and proceeded to drive the entire way back to Reykjavik. I’m not great at driving windy, high roads, and combined with the stress of not being able to figure out if a negative rapid test would be good enough to get us back up the US, it was a bit of a stressful day. But my wife is a trouper, and after a which stop where I cried from relief (the rapid test was acceptable and we could schedule it for the next day!), it got a lot better. Here are a few pics from the drive.

An Icelandic “guardrail.”

We got back to Reykjavik around 10pm and headed into town for a quick hot dog and a walkabout.

Most importantly, we met this cat in the street.

And then we went back to our hotel and passed out. A lot of driving but beautiful views and a great ending.

One more day!
