After two nights in Hvammstangi, I am heading out. After following the weather forecast closely, I wasn't surprised when there was a headwind all day, although not as fierce and no rain. Temps barely hit 50 degrees. I had made a hostel connection in Blonduos and that is where I am heading, as I was two days ago when I got turned around by the gale force winds and rain.
The roads are in very good shape, although only two lanes with no shoulder. Most drivers are very carefull and the few who are not....well, I can't help but wonder if they are from the United States. There are people here from all over the world and the great majority rent a car. Defensive bicycling tactics are the order of the day.
The scenery was splendid with the usual assortment of horses, sheep, farms, rivers, volcanic cliffs and one goose, I think. The next morning as I was leaving I took a few pictures in town. The green building is the hostel where I stayed. Interesting architecture of the church.
