I can't believe a whole year has gone by since my induction into Icelandic winter life. At the moment, I cannot get off the sofa to plug in my computer, never mind go upstairs to begin the process of packing, unpacking, weighing, repacking and screaming in frustration because the case won't close.
I am off to the far north again, Skagaströnd, a small fishing village on the east coast of the Húnaflói bay. Last year there were around 450 residents, although this changes dependent on whether the fishermen are out at sea or not. If they are, that reduces the population temporarily for a month.
I was there in February last year and the light was short but beautiful. I've just looked up the January sunrises/sunsets and this is what I'm in for:
Wow!!! 3.5 hours of sunlight......
Sun in Akureyri - Next 7 Days
ps. Just found this picture of my poor knees, which still haven't fully recovered after falling on ice soon after I arrived last year. This year I have mega brilliant grips x 5 in case I lose any.
