Sumar götur eru sumargötur

So, picked up the car and headed towards Látrabjarg. Weather didn’t seem on our side as we started moving, it was a fine drizzle.

Schade. Well, but on our attempt up norh, we saw many Icelandic Horses! Managed to stop near a hill where they all were, and got some nice pictures ;)

They are the most amazing creatures I must admit! They were so friendly, friendlier than dogs in my opinion! As I approached them slowly, they started coming towards me as well! Check it out!

And as soon as 1 came, the rest came and started snuggling up to me, biting and nibbling all parts of me, one even took my phone! They tried their best to grab my camera as well haha, such cuties! They were just so peaceful, grazing on the grass all over the highlands.

And when I backed up to get a picture, they followed.

Just so adorable! So it was pretty hard to get some decent pictures, and by this time the rain was immense! I could just watch them for the whole day. Everyone should try to spend some time with these lovely creatures! They are just plain fascinating! By the end of it, they were just so comfortable with me, they ended up posing for me ;)

Well, had to leave them to head to our destination, which was all the way up in the west fjords! Started driving and next we arrived near a fjord, but we skipped going round it due to the weather, and went in the tunnel under the sea, pretty cool stuff! Ended up along the coast, saw some greenery and yeah to my dismay, we decided to turn back towards Reykjavik and drop Latrabjarg, so NO PUFFINS! The drive was just too far and the weather wasn't looking good! My biggest regret I must say, for this trip.

Back in Reykjavik, I met up with Jill to try to catch the sunset again in Reykjavik, but it wasn’t as nice, compared to the one the day before, yeah, it was still raining as you know.. So rest up at Snorri’s and prepare for the next day! South coast here we come! ;)

Miss you guys!
