Today we managed 300 km on the Ring Road. Our day was packed with activities and we are really tired. So let’s not talk too much, maybe a little. Maybe about little things?Continue reading “Iceland Day 3 | Seal the deal”
Today was devoted to vatn – which, as you should already know, is water.
We started our water day by using it for drinking, making tea, brushing our teeth, flushing down another kind of water and cleaning our dishes. When we headed out, we were met by some water falling from the sky, which was kind of nice, since it totally fit our motto.Continue reading “Iceland Day 2 | Dagur vatnsins”
It is a Tipo! A Fiat Tipo, a white one that easily fits a tall couple and their luggage.Continue reading “Iceland Day 1 | This is not a typo”
It is a wonderful day to sit inside metal cages for a few hours, isn’t it? First a tram, then a train, then a plane, a bus, another plane, another bus and finally a car.
Hans A. will take us to Reykjavik safely after a short stop in Germany.
The most exciting thing about today will be picking up our rental car. According to the plan we will arrive in Iceland just before midnight – hopefully with all our luggage. If they keep their promise, someone will wait for us at the airport in order to shuttle us to the Green Motion parking lot.
Once we arrive there, we will do our best to not get screwed over. Icelandic car rentals – actually car rentals in general – have a reputation to make their customers pay for any repairs possible. And it seems like a lot is possible.
We are well prepared and very eager to meet our car rental assistant and the car that is going to carry us around the island.

Packing for cold, wet, windy weather, while keeping in mind that you might want to go bathing outdoors, yet still be comfortable indoors, take lots of high quality pictures and drive around and hike a lot – but also that you only have limited space to actually pack stuff into – that can be quite tricky.
Here is a list of ten things we did in fact put into our bags:
- Winter hats
- Bathing gear
- Thick jackets
- Warm gloves
- Long underwear
- 4 different objective lenses
- An action camera (video clips incoming)
- 101 epsiodes of “No Such Thing as a Fish”
Maybe we will post a list of things we packed but didn’t need after we return.
Stuff that can make you nervous when planning a 14-day-trip to Iceland:
- Rental car companies
- Camera equipment
- People who have been to Iceland
