Perhaps our favourite holiday: Iceland 2018
We've had an absolutely amazing time in Iceland . Adding up all the various sights we stopped at and the detours we took, I make it a total of 1,279 miles driven

We walked around for over three hours in total before catching a boat across the main lake to the place where the trails for the Lower Lakes are supposed to start. Once again we failed to find the trail we had been looking for, but instead began following a track which promised it was leading to a viewpoint.
