VoM2: Akureyri, Iceland

Although Seydisfjordur — where I got off the ferry — was a nice little village, there was absolutely nothing going on there. So, I packed up and took a couple of buses around to Akureyri on the north coast of the island. This is the second largest town in Iceland, and although there’s not a lot to it there are at least some decent food options and some great coffee.

This photo up the fjord from town offers a pretty good sense of what it looks like around here. If you consider that I took this picture at about 10 o’clock this evening, you’ll also have a sense of what it’s like to have daylight almost all the time. It kinda messes with your body clock and sleep patterns. I’m going to put on my eye-shades and call it a day… Stay tuned!
