Hello! I’ve had too much coffee and not enough sleep! And this should probably be called Akureryi Part 2 but I’m not going to worry about that right now.
Two days ago I went on a hike!
Up there, to be exact.
It was not easy. As my hiking companion, a guy from Portugal who has been working in Iceland for the summer, said, “That was the best and worst five kilometers of my life.”
Yesterday, I was assigned a scavenger hunt around the city of Akureryi. I won’t post everything I found here (that’s for a later post), but some highlights were:
The scavenger hunt was so much fun, and a great way to get to know a city. Since I’ll be in Seydisfjördur and then Reykjavik, I’d like to do another hunt for cool/funny/interesting/inherently icelandic things.
So, I’m taking suggestions. What should I look for in those areas, or in general? Should I touch a glacier? Take an embarrassed selfie at the Phallus Museum? Let’s explore!
