Hello and welcome to the End. Today was the last official day of our trip, since tomorrow will solely be devoted to going back home.
In case you have noticed that there is no post about day 13: did you know that in a lot of countries you cannot go to floor 13 in skyscraper lifts, because there is no floor 13? This blog is just like that.
Today was a day of visits. It started off with a visit to Listasafnið á Akureyri, which is the Akureyri Art Museum. They had free parking for two hours and free admission for good looking Austrian students. We paid 1500 ISK to get in.
Today we visited the Mývatn area. Mývatn is a lake and the Mývatn area is the area around the lake. This area, meaning the area around Mývatn, has lots of geothermal activity. That means it is smelly and has lots of chemicals and microorganisms everywhere and also there is a volcano. The volcano has produced lots of volcanic rock. This kind of rock is everywhere now.
And the people of Iceland are convinced that people who are not from Iceland want to see the volcanic rock, and walk on it, and take pictures. So we did just that, to satisfy their expectations. Have a look:
Today was a lazy day. We started it off with a nice birthday breakfast while chatting with two German computer science students. It was raining heavily – our plans for the area included a lot of walking.
