The last Day in Iceland

The last day of our journey we spent on the Reykjanes peninsula and visited the geothermal fields of Krýsuvík one more time. But this time it wasn’t raining cats and dogs and we had a great view over Kleifarvatn and the sea. During our stay in Iceland we slowly got used to the pungent smell […]
