Sara, there are a few more around here, you can find some really nice pics in the diary of Fauni. The others don't write that much but if you do some rechearch you will find other pics too.
Enjoy the yahoo icelandichorse list you will meat some nice people from sweden over there, nearby were you going to live.
Holistichorse, Wow Whale watching, we have done that also, yes we were playing tourist for about....thinking....8 years ago? maybe some more...
And yes we have seen some minkey whales, not the big ones because it was the wrong time for them. But saw also dolphins playing around the boat. It was really nice and we had a wonderfull day and even burned by the sun.
We know now that the place over there is changed into more, how do you say that tourism, more shops, musea and resaurants.
But still worth it.
We do love the silence over there, you can ride or walk for days without seeing anyone or hear anything.
You can hear the real silence no wind, birds, plains, cars, or wispering from the leaves. (because there were no trees)
and we rode the famous road Sprengisandi. I love the storys...when you visit icelandic you understand why they believe in elves and trolls and so on.
You can find them over there
And then you understand why an icelandichorse is an icelandichorse.
In all there beauctyfull colours, every collour you think they have it
I have a shetty, so our trip will go to the shetlands also...sometime
We have stand in front of the boat to the shetlands but the weather keeps us at the main land at that time. So we go, but when??? We don't know...
