The adventures of Sue & Geoff in Iceland: 15 active volcanoes, 10,000 waterfalls, 800 hot springs, 11,500 square km of glaciers, 10,000,000 puffins, exploding geysers, the Northern Lights and the Midnight Sun...not a bad place to try out the newest ideas in caravan construction.
This is a diary of our journey towing the new Swift Elegance 570 around the perimeter of Iceland with our VW Touareg in the company of a few other fellow adventurers, mostly in motorhomes, it has to be said.
Onto Smyril Line again from Torshavn, then two nights on a millpond (thank goodness says Sue)... farewell meal aboard ship...then arrive at Hirtshals, Denmark, three quarters of an hour late, as we stooge around waiting for a berth. We drive through Denmark to Esbjerg, with not much time for seeing anything on the way, where we board the DFDS sailing to Harwich. It's a long hike back, as we're no longer full of anticipation for the adventure ahead.
Beauty and the Beast.....it's all in the eye of the beholder
We all recognise that this has been a quite an adventure and that, of course, forms a bond between us all. Great Bunch. We share emails etc., facilitated by our tour leaders, and then we're motoring along the truly awful bumpy, pot-holed A12 and we're here...HOME. Time to clean up, sort out then reflect...
