Fantastic weather during the flight to Reykjavik. Here looking at Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon.

After the meeting I collected my rental car (a Suzuki Jimmy; the first and last time I rent one of those) and headed east along the ring road towards Höfn and Stafafell. It is a long drive, but there are lots of interesting sites along the way, such as beautiful waterfalls, remote landscapes, a naturally heated swimming pool in the mountains, impressive glaciers and lagoons full of icebergs, to stop, go for a walk and break the journey. I think I managed to choose quite a nice selection of sights and short walks during the drive to Stafafell and back to the airport in Keflavik.
