Blog enhancements

Added: August 26, 2008

Tags: info

I am slowly adding new features to this blog. You probably noticed recent change in design and new gallery-like navigation.

A feature I knew since beginning I am going to add, but was a bit afraid for long time are comments. I needed to think about way how to avoid spams and other nasty things that happen in Internet world. So it took me long time, but it is available here now.

I look forward to hearing from you and I hope there will not be many comments that I will be forced to delete. In case of something terrible, I am able to turn all comments off in a few seconds.

And stay tuned for more enhancements.

We plan to spend Saturday 21st of June in Northwest Iceland. Beautiful weather started later yesterday and it is the same today.

We need to travel a lot today again, there is no chance we could reach our destination Reykir soon. But there should be plenty of light as we have learned from previous days. Not to mention it is Summer solstice today.

On Friday 20th of June we are going again to Jökulsárgljúfur, because we did not go to Selfoss yesterday. This time we are going to try western road. Then we are going (again :-) ) to geothermal fields of Námafjall. This time with cameras.

Then we are going to check out surroundings of Mývatn (depends on weather), go to Goðafoss and finally to reach Akureyri.

Thursday 19th of June we plan to jump to north part of Iceland. Jump means there are not many stops planned on our route.

Weather is much worse than it was yesterday, it is cold and it rains at noon.

We planned to take Ring road as far as possible, but directions to our hostel in Berunes mention also road 939 Öxi that goes through mountains and is 4WD. We decided to give it a try.
