My rest day in Akureyri was mild and sunny. It's the second largest town in Iceland, but still small compared to Reykjavik. I decided to do a little toodle around town to see the sights. The town is on the same fjord that I was on for the past two days. The giant cruise ship that you see is French and very new. This town has everything, is compact, and really pleasant.
It doesn't have a long history like some other places in Iceland, but does have an older section and some beautiful modern buildings. In the town center, the throngs of spectators are watching Iceland get whipped by Nigeria 2-0. The hostel I stayed in is the last picture of the white building surrounded by trees.
