Iceland! 30.3. – 12.4.2015 Part one

Finally I could make one of my dreams come true – to visit Iceland! 🙂 We drove in two weeks 2575 km and it was An Adventure!! We really know now that there really are limits in Iceland that with what kind of car you can drive on certain roads. And we had a little Hyundai 🙂 That served us well though. We drove mainly on the Route 1 – the Ring Road. We started from Keflavik and drove from south to east and north and back to Keflavik. Here are a tiny fraction of my photos from our holiday. 🙂

Our first morning started with a beautiful sunshine and talking with nice people from different countries. The previous night was scary trying to find our hostel (with a paper map, no navigator) in pitch black trying to get our car away from a hole full of snow in a freezing weather… But we survived. Thanks to the hostel that was right next to us and very very nice and helpful guys from the hostel!!

Icelandic horses are adorable! Unfortunately the wind was SO freezing that an hour on a horse was too much…
