Iceland - Day 10: Mývatn to Reykjavik (by van)

Previous Up Next

This drive was day 3 in reverse, but longer, since we'd spent the week biking further away from Reykjavik. We drove from Mývatn back to Reykjavik, and the scenery continued to be great, but it was a long day. Back in Reykjavik, Gina and i swung by Art Gallery 101 so i could shop for a souvenir. Then we met up with the rest of the group for dinner, and some miscellaneous clothes shopping. We went back to Cafe Loki for rye bread ice cream and brennavin, then board games back at the hotel.
