Our fifth day in Iceland was somehow the most uneventful and eventful day of the week. It was uneventful because we basically just had two sites to visit and it was going to be a day of mostly driving. But, it was eventful because we punctured a tire and had to replace it. What an adventure!
Our "second" stop of the day was the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. We basically drove around the entire thing and even though it was rather foggy, it was beautiful.
KIRKJUFELL & KIRKJUFELLSFOSS
We stopped in this little town to grab some hot dogs (with everything, of course) and to do a quick wander. Olafsvik is a tiny port town but it's really cute. There are colorful houses, a pretty cool church, and of course, a waterfall.
Vatnshellir is closed in the winter, but apparently you can take a winding spiral staircase down into this lava cave which is cool. Even if it was open I wouldn't have gone because heights and enclosed spaces like that give me anxiety. I could endure it, but I would prefer not to.
Day 2 since we didn't have much luck the rest of the week.
