Iceland: Day 7

We woke early to light snow at sea level in Akureyri's, with a long day ahead of us, and three mountain passes to traverse before reaching Reykjavik. We left Akureyri at 8:30 in light wet snow, and drove west until we arrived at a folk museum and turf farm at Glaumbaer. This is an amazing structure built primarily of drift/found wood and sided and roofed with turf. This traditional building style replace long houses because they are more efficient to heat and require minimal amounts of wood for building and heating. They are SMALL and LOW - however I did not have to duck as most of our group did to get through the doors.


Dear reader this is all you are getting - at the moment, as I just spent 2 hours finishing this piece  - but appear to have lost it all. FRUSTRATION is putting me to bed.
