Hi guys, thanks for your coments. I enjoy it when you kike it.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
There was another waterfall on the way where we stopped to have a look.




One last one from that ride.




It was late when we arrived at the Godafoss waterfall. There was a camping there so we set up our tent and had a good sleep with the water roaring in the distance.

The next morning we took it easy and had breakfast in the sun.



We then carried on heading back to Egilstadir. Our time was almost over and we had to be back in time.

Some gnoms on the way.








Since we had one day left we did a day trip to the north to Höfn.





Some fish soup for lunch.





And at last we went down to the harbour to wast our last hours.









The next morning Sandra made her way to the airport to fly back home and I went to board the ferry for my long way home.
It was a nice trip and I can really recomend visiting Iceland.

Here the last fotos on the ferry leaving Iceland.





That was it. See you again later this year back on the TAT.

thanks for following.
Cheers Thomas

Thanks Thomas! That was a visual riding treat. I would like to take a ride there some day.

Thanks so much for taking the time to take the pictures and post the story for us! Thanks Sandra for us as well, since apparently she took a lot of those photographs!

I cann't give you any precise prices but camping on official camp sites is pretty cheap. Especially compared with the hotel prices.
To make it even cheaper you can go "into the wild" and camp there. Lots of nice places.

Well try to get there. It's a wonderful place for a ride.
Sandra was thanked. Yes, she took all the bike pictures as I am the one riding the bike.

I think we did around 5000 km (have to look that up) on Iceland.
The rear tyre was just melting away. The thread was so low on my way home that I hoped the police wouldn't stop me for a control. Not the longest lasting tyre I ever had.
