Our hotel was called Vogafjos guesthouse, and I really wish I’d gotten picture of the actual room as it was really pretty. It was like a wooden cabin and even had heated stone floors! It was a great location, really close to the geothermal area, Dimborger with it’s really cool rock formations, and the Jardbodin hot pools. Just down the road a few miles from where we were staying we picked up a girl hitchhiking on the side of the road who happened to be from Myvatn, so we got a little Icelandic lesson, as well as a tip to eat at the pizza place. Her sister worked there so she maaaay have been biased, but to be fair, really good pizza. The girls who worked there were really lovely and helpful too and helped us pick out some Icelandic beer to try. Wins all around. I just wish we’d had more time to explore the area as there’s actually quite a lot to do!
Our second day in Iceland saw us heading to Myvatn in North Iceland. When we checked into where we were staying I got super excited about all the sheep and cows around. Turns out they milk the cows twice daily and you can go and watch them and have a really good coffee from the cafe.
